    Fired up VLC on laptop this afternoon and received an update message.
    I think we can ad all this to Sandiver's thread

    If this new update is not seen thru your VLC Player, use the Tools tab and the 'Check For Updates' option.
    Can also download it from VLC's website (shown in the coded link below)

    VideoLAN and the VLC development team present VLC 3.0.3 "Vetinari"
    VLC 3.0.3 is a major update to VLC, introducing hardware decoding by default, allowing 4K with low-cpu usage (and 8K on recent machines), supporting HDR and 360 video.
    It also improves audio passthrough, allows to stream to ChromeCast, Blurays and local network drive browsing

    VLC 3.0.2
    2018-04-23
    VideoLAN is publishing the VLC 3.0.2 release, for general availability. This release is fixing most of the important bugs and regressions from VLC 3.0.0, "Vetinari", and improves decoding speed on macOS. More than 150 bugs were fixed since the 3.0.0 release.

    VLC 3.0.1
    2018-02-28
    VideoLAN and the VLC development team are releasing VLC 3.0.1, the first bugfix release of the "Vetinari" branch, for Linux, Windows and macOS. This version improves the chromecast support, hardware decoding, adaptive streaming, and fixes many bugs or crashes encountered in the 3.0.0 version. In total more than 30 issues have been fixed, on all platforms. The complete changelog can be found here.

    VLC 3.0.0
    2018-02-09
    VideoLAN and the VLC development team are releasing VLC 3.0.0 "Vetinari" for Linux, Windows, OS X, BSD, Android, iOS, UWP and Windows Phone today!
    This is the first major release in three years. It activates hardware decoding by default to get 4K and 8K playback, supports 10bits and HDR playback, 360 video and 3D audio, audio passthrough for HD audio codecs, streaming to Chromecast devices (even in formats not supported natively), playback of Blu-Ray Java menus and adds browsing of local network drives.

    VLC 2.2.8
    2017-12-05
    VideoLAN and the VLC development team are happy to publish version 2.2.8 of VLC media player today.
    This release fixes a security issue in the AVI demuxer. Additionally, it includes the following fixes, which are part of 2.2.7: This release fixes compatibility with macOS High Sierra and fixes SSA subtitles rendering on macOS. This release also fixes a few security issues, in the flac and the libavcodec modules (heap write overflow), in the avi module and a few crashes.
    For macOS users, please note: A bug was fixed in VLC 2.2.7 concerning the update mechanism on macOS. In rare circumstances, an auto-update from older versions of VLC to VLC 2.2.8 might not be possible. Please download the update manually from our website in this case.
