288 of avi and asf to DIV3.
289- added -me option to set motion estimation method
290 (default=log). suppressed redundant -hq option.
291- added options -acodec and -vcodec to force a given codec (useful for
292 AVI for example).
293- fixed -an option.
294- improved dct_quantize speed.
295- factorized some motion estimation code.
297version 0.4.0:

300 stream support to ffmpeg.
301- added timeshifting support for live feeds (option ?date=xxx in the
302 URL).
303- added high quality image resize code with polyphase filter (need
304 mmx/see optimisation). Enable multiple image size support in ffserver.
305- added multi live feed support in ffserver.
306- suppressed master feature from ffserver (it should be done with an
307 external program which opens the .ffm url and writes it to another
308 ffserver).
309- added preliminary support for video stream parsing (wav and avi half
310 done). Added proper support for audio/video file convertion in
311 ffmpeg.
312- added preliminary support for video file sending from ffserver.
313- redesigning I/O subsystem : now using URL based input and output
314 (see avio.h).

320- added new motion estimation algorithms, log and phods (Juanjo).
321- changed directories : libav for format handling, libavcodec for
322 codecs.
324version 0.3.4:
326- added stereo in mpeg audio encoder.
328version 0.3.3:
330- added 'high quality' mode which use motion vectors. It can be used in
331 real time at low resolution.
332- fixed rounding problems which caused quality problems at high
333 bitrates and large gop size.
335version 0.3.2: small fixes
