Hi,

This latest update to the 1.0 LTS branch is likely to be the final one 
unless severe issues are found in the next year or so.

There are no significant fixes here, most of the issues are either hard 
to hit or just not critical.

The codec libraries have been updated to the latest versions available 
(on Linux only), matching what is used by the new 3.0 LTS branch.


At this point there are no known reasons for sticking with this outdated 
1.0 branch unless your servers are running an outdated distribution like 
CentOS / RHEL 6.x

The new 3.0 LTS supersedes it.


The MS Windows (XP 32-bit) and MacOS (10.5.x 32-bit) installers are 
provided for reference only, please bear in mind that those are using 
outdated libraries throughout and they are riddled with serious security 
issues, do not use these builds in production. Use the newer supported 
versions instead.
