I built against the 6:0.6.1 ffmpeg version in the community repo to protect against the stable debian-multimedia version. For some reason, it's upgraded to 5:0.7.9, and I know for sure that breaks gstreamer-ffmpeg transcoding in Miro, probably a lot more programs. Building against the stock 4:0.6.1 M11 would have made that DM ffmpeg appear as an upgrade the first time a user added the repo, and then we'd have a lot of questions about "why did XXX stop working?"

I do appreciate all the comments though!
The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true.

Nice job guys.
I updated to 4.7.4 without a hitch, other than messing up the task manager once again.
Actually that's the reason I notice that you had an update to KDE available.
I'm going to start a different thread in regards to the task manager.

Thanks,
Al
