    Release Notes: The deinterlace plugin has been completely converted to vector intrinsics, with MMX, 3DNow!, SSE, and SSE2 optimized routines. Support for x86-64 SSE2 and AltiVec has also been added, but not fully tested yet. Scalar implementations are now available for CPUs without SIMD extensions. A crash during deinterlacer initialization, in the VTX Teletext export function, and the soundcard mixer code has been fixed. The fullscreen capture mode works again. Teletext double width characters display correctly. Video capturing now works with drivers providing fewer buffers than previously required.
