+Hey! A new release!<br>
+MPlayer 1.2.1 is a bugfix release from the 1.2 branch. If you're using MPlayer
+1.2 you are encouraged to upgrade.
+MPlayer 1.2.1 fixes many crashes with fuzzed files, squashes many bugs and
+includes some compatibility enhancements. Many bugs are fixed also in FFmpeg,
+you can check ther changelog for details.<br>
+It's also easier to build this release with a system-wide version of FFmpeg,
+since you don't need to copy internal FFmpeg headers anymore.
+Mplayer 1.2.1 is compatible with the FFmpeg 2.8.x releases.
+The tarball includes a copy of FFmpeg 2.8.5 (the latest at this date), so you
+don't need to fetch it separately.<br>
+Just like 1.2, this version will not work with new FFmpeg master branch, nor
+with the upcoming FFmpeg 2.9 (or 3.0, or whatever name will be chosen).<br>
+If you need to work with the latest FFmpeg, please use svn version.
+If you're following the development from svn HEAD you can ignore this; all the
+bug fixes are also included in the development version.
