This release is focused on improving 'player' support (using the -P command-line switch). Players now read from stdin, rather than from a file. The option '-o none' is added to allow use of player mode without leaving files of downloaded content lying around on disk. Also some bugfixes, including fix of a segfault when a connection fails.
