279- improved dct_quantize speed.
280- factorized some motion estimation code.

287 URL).
288- added high quality image resize code with polyphase filter (need
289 mmx/see optimisation). Enable multiple image size support in ffserver.
290- added multi live feed support in ffserver.
291- suppressed master feature from ffserver (it should be done with an
292 external program which opens the .ffm url and writes it to another
293 ffserver).
294- added preliminary support for video stream parsing (wav and avi half
295 done). Added proper support for audio/video file convertion in
296 ffmpeg.
297- added preliminary support for video file sending from ffserver.

309version 0.3.4:
311- added stereo in mpeg audio encoder.
313version 0.3.3:
315- added 'high quality' mode which use motion vectors. It can be used in
316 real time at low resolution.
317- fixed rounding problems which caused quality problems at high
318 bitrates and large gop size.
320version 0.3.2: small fixes
322- asf fixes
323- put_seek bug fix
325version 0.3.1: added avi/divx support
