I've made a new release of our libtheora reference implementation. This
draws a line under all the development since alpha 4 before we start
merging in the optimization work people have been doing. It also
contains a fix for two serious bugs (one an encoding error, one a
segfault) so we recommend everyone upgrade. The release is source and
binary compatible with 1.0 alpha 4.
Thanks to everyone whose work made this release possible!

Updated API documentation and spec:
Change summary: (libtheora-1.0alpha5 released 2005 August 20)
* Fixed bitrate management bugs that caused popping and encode
* Fixed a crash problem with the theora_state internals not
being intialized properly.
* new utility function:
* dump_video example now makes YUV4MPEG files by default, so
the results can be fed back to encoder_example and similar
tools. The old behavior is restored through the '-r' switch.
* ./configure now prints a summary
* simple unit test of the comment api under 'make check'
* misc code cleanup, warning and leak fixes
