308 mmx/see optimisation). Enable multiple image size support in ffserver.
309- added multi live feed support in ffserver.
310- suppressed master feature from ffserver (it should be done with an
311 external program which opens the .ffm url and writes it to another
312 ffserver).

314 done). Added proper support for audio/video file convertion in
315 ffmpeg.
