    + Vetinari is a major release changing a lot in the media engine of VLC.
      It is one of the largest release we've ever done.
      Notably, it:
    - activates hardware decoding on all platforms, of H.264 & H.265, 8 & 10bits,
      allowing 4K60 or even 8K decoding with little CPU consumption,
    - merges all the code from the mobile ports into the same codebase with
      common numbering and releases,
    - supports 360 video and 3D audio, and prepares for VR content,
    - supports direct HDR and HDR tone-mapping,
    - updates the audio passthrough for HD Audio codecs,
    - allows browsing of local network drives like SMB, FTP, SFTP, NFS...
    - stores the passwords securely,
    - brings a new subtitle rendering engine, supporting ComplexTextLayout
      and font fallback to support multiple languages and fonts,
    - supports ChromeCast with the new renderer framework,
    - adds support for numerous new formats and codecs, including WebVTT,
      AV1, TTML, HQX, 708, Cineform, and many more,

    devel subpackage Requires.
  - Split out new conditional vlc-vdpau sub-package, add post(un)
    handling and devel subpackage Requires.
  - The rational for the above splits is allowing users to select
    what features they need and want, avoiding in many cases unwanted
    dependencies, vdpau support is only available for third party
    builds, and jack (real time audio) is really just for a select
    few of our end-users.

    as openSUSE now contains/ships the library.

    deprecated fribidi functions. Disallowing deprecated stuff is
    good during the dev phase, but once released, it is just becoming
    a pain.
* Wed Feb 14 2018
  - Move liba52-devel, libmad-devel and pkgconfig(twolame)
    BuildRequires from conditional BUILD_ORIG to standard build, now
    available in openSUSE. Following this, remove --disable-a52 and
    - -disable-mad and move --enable-a52 and --enable-mad to normal
    part of configure calls. Add a --enable-twolame configure call to
    ensure we build twolame support.

    - Autodetect external audio tracks (ac3, m4a, aac, dts...)
      similar to subtitles.

    - Support for ambisonic audio and more than 8 audio channels.
    - Support subtitles size live adjustments.
