293 mmx/see optimisation). Enable multiple image size support in ffserver.
294- added multi live feed support in ffserver.
295- suppressed master feature from ffserver (it should be done with an
296 external program which opens the .ffm url and writes it to another
297 ffserver).
298- added preliminary support for video stream parsing (wav and avi half
299 done). Added proper support for audio/video file convertion in
300 ffmpeg.
301- added preliminary support for video file sending from ffserver.

322 bitrates and large gop size.
324version 0.3.2: small fixes
326- asf fixes
327- put_seek bug fix
