Videolan have updated desktop version of VLC Player. Version 2.0.7 is a minor update that contains security updates and audio file format improvements, the new version can be downloaded from for Linux, Mac and Windows.

For users of Windows RT there is a Windows Store version in development, Videolan used Kickstarter to raise money for the project and in a recent post on one of the developer’s blog they have talked about the progress of the project. A lot of work has gone into the project and there is still lots of work to be done but it looks like its progressing well and it may not be long before we see a preview.

2.0.7 is a small update that fixes some regressions of the 2.0.x branch of VLC.

2.0.7 fixes track selection for PowerPC machines.

2.0.7 also fixes and important regression in decoding numerous audio file formats and when encoding in MP3 and AAC.

2.0.7 closes a couple of security issues and fixes regression in our ActiveX plugin for Internet Explorer.

With faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware and the ability to open more formats, notably professional, HD and 10bits codecs, 2.0 was a major upgrade for VLC.
