Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

Yes, PackMan replaces packages if you perform a dist-upgrade. PackMan has newer versions of many applications, eg. Brasero, Miro, also GStreamer (with full support for patented codecs), etc.
So far nothing from PackMan broke my installation.

Okay, I enabled the Packman repository, but it doesn't include a newer version of VLC.

VLC repo has 0.9.2-1.1, Packman has

Wow, then after 3 months VLC catched up? The official VLC repo had no updates since June.
Version numbers after the dash sign don't matter, btw. The last VLC update in PackMan was (in time of writing) 17 hours ago. VLC repo's codec libraries also sometimes conflict with PackMan's.
