I didn't bump the version to 1.0-RC3, because I couldn't get it to build.
The build routine changed too much from RC2 to RC3. RC2 was released
07-Oct-2007, and RC3 was released 29-May-2010. RC3 was held up for over a
year, before being release, and by mplayer's own admission "...it is
outdated even before the day of its release." Also, RC3 has a lot of fixed
bugs in it, and the mplayer developers _strongly_ suggest using an svn
version. I tried getting an svn version to build, but failed at that. I'm
not well versed enough in their build process, for now anyway, to figure it
out. Like I said, "...someone smarter than me is going to have to do it."
