Patch notes for this release:

Fixed various bugs in Windows and MacOS builds. Windows and MacOS builds were not working properly on various occasions. Both builds should perform better and work with increased stability. Note: In this release, new VoD streams in FLV format will be (incorrectly) recognized as corrupt and won't show up on the preview page until they have been opened manually through any protocol at least once. This issue only affects Windows and Mac builds - Linux builds are unaffected.

Improved error reporting and debugging. We've added several extra debug messages and adjusted the debug levels of various debug messages to be more suitable. Additionally, several error messages have been made more clear.

Fixed semaphore file handle leak. Semaphores caused file handle leaks, taking up system resources needlessly. This problem has been fixed, and stability improved.

Added dual-stack support to Windows builds. Windows builds will now correctly listen on both IPv4 and IPv6 when the OS and network support it.

Updated init.d script.Improved support for Fedora, Slackware and other related Linux distributions. A special thanks to bdheeman for the new version.

Fixed timeout problems in output connectors. Sometimes output connectors wouldn't disconnect properly, this has been fixed.

Various other small tweaks and fixes. Improving performance and stability over all supported platforms.
