PlayOgg: Theora 1.0 is released!
The Xiph.Org Foundation has announced the release of Theora 1.0. As a patent- and royalty-free video codec, Theora is an excellent choice for artists, producers and developers who want to help make a world in which everyone can safely and easily use free software. Theora has been standardized since 2004 but this mature and stable release is an important milestone.
Upcoming releases of Mozilla Firefox will support Theora natively with the new

means that all of the other free software web browsers derived from the Firefox
code base, like Iceweasel and GNU IceCat, will be able to do the same.
Congratulations to Xiph.Org on the release! It's great to see it getting easier and easier for people to Play Ogg.
