   - Modified the installation location and names of internal VDPAU
   libraries to conform to conventions and Debian packaging guidelines. New
   versions of libvdpau expect this layout. Compatibility with old versions of
   libvdpau is maintained with symlinks.
   - Fixed a bug that could cause errors in graphical applications run after
   a previous application using VDPAU and OpenGL. This behaviour was observed
   when running Gwenole Beauchesne's hwdecode-demos application.
   - Modified vdpau.h to increment VDPAU_VERSION, to reflect the fact that
   new features have been added in the past. Also, add the new define
   - Fixed a periodic temporary hang in the VDPAU blit-based presentation
   - Fixed a problem that caused resolution limitations or corruption on
   certain DisplayPort devices such as the Apple 24" Cinema display or some
   DisplayPort to VGA adapters.
   - Disabled the UseEvents option for GeForce 8 series and higher GPUs due
   to a problem that causes occasional short hangs. It will be re-enabled when
   that bug has been tracked down and fixed.
   - VDPAU now allows multiple streams to be decoded at once, without the
   need to set any environment variables.
