Release 0.0.7: Let there be Mini support!

A few changes in this release:

  • Support for GMA950-based video hardware, like Mac Mini and some MacBooks. Until this point you’ve had to live vicariously through your larger-mac’d brethren. No longer. Scott kindly helped me out with a remote Screen Share session, and a few more OpenGL calls had to be changed to their ARB cousins.
  • Multi-threaded decoding has been enabled in ffmpeg. This *may* provide a performance boost for H.264 and MPEG2 content. In practice, I haven’t noticed much difference, but feel free to prove me wrong.
  • The postproc/swscale portions of ffmpeg have been hooked up.
  • CPU ID has been partially written, you’ll at least see something on the home screen.

You can pick up the latest release here.

Oh, and my excuse for not getting this done sooner is shown below. We went whale (and dolphin) watching this weekend. Those humpback whales are some elusive bastards, and tended to jump out of the water right after my arm got tired holding the camera up to my eye. Jerks.
