The VLC team has announced the third version of the Goldeneye branch of VLC: 1.0.2. This version brings 64-bit support to Mac OS X.

VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player supporting most audio and video formats (H.264, Ogg, DivX, MKV, TS, MPEG-2, mp3, MPEG-4, aac, ...) from files, physical media (DVDs, VCD, Audio-CD), TV capture cards and many network streaming protocols.

After almost 2 months and 27 million downloads of VLC 1.0.1, the VLC team is proud to present the third version of the Goldeneye branch of VLC: 1.0.2!

This version introduces many fixes, notably for SSA decoding, v4l2, MacOS interface, ogg/theora, x264 modules and security issues. It also introduces the port to 64bits for Mac OS platform and 2 new languages (Kazakh and Croatian).
Because of the security issues, we strongly recommand everybody to update its version of VLC.

Please note that installing this version could break the ability for third party programs to use VLC for decoding. Check your specific applications for updates as needed.

Nice. I just installed the 64-bit version, and it launches SO fast. The older version of VLC could bounce like 5 times before it finally opens, but this launches as soon as I open it - no bounces! I'll have to check it to see if the post-1.0 bugs are still there, like stuttering playback and overall slowness/bugginess.
