* Tue Mar 20 2018
- Add explicit mpg123-devel BuildRequires: on Leap/TW it was

* Wed Feb 28 2018
- Split out new vlc-jack sub-package, add post(un) handling and
  devel subpackage Requires.
- Split out new conditional vlc-vdpau sub-package, add post(un)
  handling and devel subpackage Requires.
- The rational for the above splits is allowing users to select
  what features they need and want, avoiding in many cases unwanted
  dependencies, vdpau support is only available for third party
  builds, and jack (real time audio) is really just for a select
  few of our end-users.
- Run spec-cleaner, modernize spec, sort file lists.
* Sat Feb 24 2018
- Add conditional pkgconfig(x265) BuildRequires and pass
  conditional --enable-x265 or --disable-x265, package resulting
  plugin in vlc-codecs subpackage (boo#1081608).
- Add conditional pkgconfig(fdk-aac) BuildRequires and pass
  conditional --enable-fdkaac or --disable-fdkaac, package
  resulting plugin in vlc-codecs subpackage.

- Move libmpeg2 dependency/plugin out of the BUILD_ORIG condition,
  as openSUSE now contains/ships the library.
* Sun Feb 18 2018
- Add vlc-allow-deprecated-fribidi.patch: Allow the usage of
  deprecated fribidi functions. Disallowing deprecated stuff is
  good during the dev phase, but once released, it is just becoming
  a pain.
* Wed Feb 14 2018
- Move liba52-devel, libmad-devel and pkgconfig(twolame)
  BuildRequires from conditional BUILD_ORIG to standard build, now
  available in openSUSE. Following this, remove --disable-a52 and
  - -disable-mad and move --enable-a52 and --enable-mad to normal
  part of configure calls. Add a --enable-twolame configure call to
  ensure we build twolame support.
