A new release of Schrödinger is available. Schrödinger (or “schro”
for short) is a cross-platform implementation of the Dirac video
compression specification as a C library. Many media frameworks
such as GStreamer and ffmpeg and applications such as VLC use schro
to encode and decode Dirac video.
The Dirac project maintains two encoder implementations: dirac-research,
a research encoder, and Schrödinger, which is meant for user applications.
Schrödinger outperforms dirac-research in most encoding situations, both
in terms of encoding speed and visual quality.
Roadmap: Only a few people are working on schro, and only part time,
so new features will happen only slowly.

Information about Orc:
New in 1.0.10
– Build fixes on various platforms
– Speed increases for low-delay syntax
– Fix unaligned access in orc code, which was uncovered by a recent
Orc bug fix. Bump orc requirement to 0.4.10, which makes sure
everyone works right.
– No encoder changes
