+MPlayer 1.3.0 "worksforme" is out.<br>
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Less than a month after 1.2.1, we're at it again.<br>
+</p>
+
+<p>
+MPlayer 1.3.0 is compatible with the FFmpeg 3.0.x releases and (at the time of
+writing) with FFmpeg git.
+The tarball already includes a copy of FFmpeg 3.0, so you don't need to fetch
+it separately.<br>
+</p>
+
+<p>
+This release brings you some new codecs and formats, a lot of fixes, and many
+cleanups. It also includes all the enhancements and speed-ups from FFmpeg;
+check their changelog if you are curious about the details.</p>
+
+<p>
+In addition to these, there were a lot of updates to accomodate the API changes
+made in FFmpeg. Some were simple renames, but others were quite invasive. None
+of them should have a user-visible effect, except maybe for some corner-cases
+in the channel order for multichannel files.<br>
+If you see any regression from the previous releases, please report it on the
+<a href="mailing_lists.html">mplayer-users</a> mailing list or use our
+<a href="https://trac.mplayerhq.hu/";>bug tracker</a>.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+So, which version should you use? Try this simple test.<br>
+<ul>
+ <li>1 Do you compile you own MPlayer?
+  <ul><li> If no, go to 5.</li></ul>
+ </li>
+ <li>2 Do you want to use a system-wide copy of FFmpeg?</li>
+  <ul><li>If no, go to 4.</li></ul>
+ </li>
+ <li>3 Which version of FFmpeg do you have?
+  <ul>
+   <li>If it's 2.8.x, use MPlayer 1.2.x</li>
+   <li>If it's 3.0.x, use MPlayer 1.3.x</li>
+   <li>If you have an older version, you are on your own. Sorry</li>
+   <li>If you have a newer version, can I borrow your time machine?</li>
+  </ul>
+ </li>
+ <li>4 Do you want the latest and greatest features?
+  <ul>
+   <li> If yes, use MPlayer SVN and FFmpeg git.</li>
+   <li> If no (why?), use 1.3.x unless you have a good reason to stay on 1.2.x.</li>
+  </ul>
+ </li>
+ <li>5 You still have some options!
+  <ul>
+   <li>Use the version packaged by your distribution.</li>
+   <li>Look for a package on our <a href="dload.html">download page</a>.</li>
+   <li>Look for an updated package in the unofficial repositories for you distribution.</li>
+  </ul>
+ </li>
+</ul>
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Starting from this release, MPlayer depend also on libswresample (part of
+FFmpeg); the library is autodetected, and compilation will fail without it.
