Check your facts, David! xine-lib 1.1.7 in Fedora was released today, only a few hours ago: https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-package-announce/2007-June/msg00325.html On the contrary, xine-lib-extras-nonfree 1.1.7 was released yesterday already: http://livna.org/pipermail/freeworld/2007-June/001586.html
