[theora] libtheora 1.1 (Thusnelda) stable release

,----[ Quote ]
| We are pleased to announce a new stable release of 
| libtheora, the Xiph.org Foundation's reference 
| implementation of the royalty-free Theora video format. 
| This new release, version 1.1, codenamed Thusnelda, 
| incorporates all of the recent encoder improvements we 
| have been making over the past year, though some of the 
| code had its genesis all the way back in 2003. It also 
| brings substantial speed and robustness improvements to 
| the 1.0 decoder.


New encoder library for Ogg Theora open source video codec

,----[ Quote ]
| The Xiph.org Foundation's open source developers have 
| released version 1.1 ("Thusnelda") of their reference 
| implementation of the libtheora encoder library. 
| Thusnelda is said to offer considerable quality and 
| performance improvements over version 1.0.



Whatâs the Problem with Theora?

,----[ Quote ]
| Based on what we actually know, Theora looks good.  It complies with the W3C
| patent policy and goals, and there havenât been any patent claims that would
| indicate otherwise.


Wikipedia push for Ogg Theora

,----[ Quote ]
| Wikipediaâs decision to support Ogg Theora for video uploads may be the last
| chance to break the proprietary video monopoly embodied in H.264.
| Microsoft, Google and Apple have all built H.264 support into their products
| because it readily adapts to Digital Rights Management, without which studios
| and other video rights owners have been unwilling to make content available
| online.
