Remember our story last week that talked about VLC 2.0 arriving this week? Well, it seems that that particular bit of news is as accurate as Robin Hood, and here we are with some bit of news over the weekend that VLC 2.0, also known as Twoflower in some circles, has been released. Of course, the release candidate version did roll out earlier, but at least this is the final release and is available for official downloads. Some rather stark user interface changes were introduced in VLC 2.0, where it also delivers faster decoding on multi-core processors (which means smoother frame rates and all that), not to mention an ever expanding list of file compatibility.

Another interesting aspect of VLC 2.0 would be support for Blu-ray playback, although at this point in time, it has been billed to be “experimental” at best, so do not expect that to work hunky dory at all times. Apart from that, VLC 2.0 will bring along a bunch of fixes for several hundred bugs – and best of all is, this 21MB download is free! What are you waiting for?
