261 can decode ffmpeg mpegs :-)).
262- added libavcodec API documentation (see apiexample.c).

280- improved dct_quantize speed.
281- factorized some motion estimation code.
282

286 stream support to ffmpeg.
287- added timeshifting support for live feeds (option ?date=xxx in the
288 URL).
289- added high quality image resize code with polyphase filter (need
290 mmx/see optimisation). Enable multiple image size support in ffserver.
291- added multi live feed support in ffserver.
292- suppressed master feature from ffserver (it should be done with an
293 external program which opens the .ffm url and writes it to another
294 ffserver).
295- added preliminary support for video stream parsing (wav and avi half
296 done). Added proper support for audio/video file convertion in
297 ffmpeg.
298- added preliminary support for video file sending from ffserver.
299- redesigning I/O subsystem : now using URL based input and output
300 (see avio.h).
