That's right. I've also build 0.5 release when it came out. I've updated 
to svn after security problems where known in the vrsion and no update 
was released.

It's not easy to keep all programms working with new svn snapshots. Not 
seldom api changes make it necessary to patch programms. I would be glad 
to keep 0.6 for a while.

avfilter is enabled.

I'll fix this with the next rebuild. I've named it ffmpeg but rpmlint 
was not happy with it, so I've replased the first f with a upercase F.

PS: If you want to have the latest snapshots, just take a look at
    It's my personal testing tree with daily snapshots of libxine
    and needed libs (like ffmpeg and x264).
