The VLC player in Gutsy repositories is really old, are there any chances of update?

There's actually an update (http://www.ainotenshi.org/2008/09/15/vlc-092-released/) in the works. There's a tutorial (http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2008/09/16/install-vlc-media-player-092-in-ubuntu/) on the Tombuntu site that shows you how to get it. If you're using an alternate skin I strongly suggest you switch to the default skin before you run the update. I had some pretty serious issues (http://nancib.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/about-the-new-vlc-ppa-builds/) because I didn't do that.

Thanks. I'll try that if I ever update my system from gutsy to hardy.
