TUV has upgraded Firefox to 31 ESR and libvpx to 1.3.0 as dependancy:

CODE
Packages Altered:
   Updated firefox-24.8.0-1.el6_5.x86_64 @sl-security
   Update          31.1.0-5.el6_5.x86_64 @sl-fastbugs
   Updated libvpx-1.0.0-2.1.el6.x86_64   @linuxtech-release/6.3
   Update         1.3.0-5.el6_5.x86_64   @sl-fastbugs


Before this upgrade the base repos provided libvpx 0.9 which was not compatible with some Linuxtech multi-media packages - and therefore linuxtech provided its own libvpx-1.0.0 RPM. After this upgrade I have not yet encountered problems with Totem or VLC but I would like to ask if this version is really compatible.

According to the abi-compliance-checker the two versions of libvpx (1.0.0 and 1.3.0) are ABI compatible so the TUV update to 1.3.0 should have no impact on Linuxtech packages built for libvpx 1.0.0.

Of course if anyone notices any problems with Linuxtech packages related to libvpx then please report them here.
