Mac OS X Late last night (CET), we reported on the story that the VLC project needed more developers for the Mac version of this popular video player, or else the Mac variant may disappear. Just about every website out there reported on this issue, but it turns out it all got a bit exaggerated (on the internet? Surely you jest...). We spoke to VLC developer Pierre d'Herbemont to clarify the issue, and they've also put up a wiki page about the so-called demise of the Mac version of VLC. He also detailed what, exactly, they meant by "Apple is blocking us".

RE[5]: Qt4 Interface?

The mistake of deciding to rewrite from scratch was made long before Netscape 6.

Yer, that's why I mentioned Netscape 5. To skip a release number completely to try and give the impression that things hadn't ground to a halt tells you everything you need to know about ths whole episode. Netscape might have been led to the toilet by Microsoft, but they ultimately pulled the chain.
