I’ve been waiting for this for so long.”, but sure, thank you developers Atheist here, by the way JPisini 2006-12-04 11:49 pm EST Good news. judgen 2006-12-05 2:09 am EST Didnt we allready have samba (fyysik’s build), msn gtalk yahoo aim and all the others (in im_kit), vbr (through lame) and vorbis support in R5?
