  Extended Front Row subtitle hack to cover 10.6 and reduced its ugliness

  Worked around re-encoding files with subtitles not working

  Worked around some MKV embedded fonts being incompatible with 10.6

  Fixed RGB HuffYUV video displaying black bars over the video on 10.6

  Now compiles under Xcode 3.2

  Using a debugger on a process with Perian loaded printed warnings about missing files

  Fixed decoding of WMA audio tracks

  Fixed a crash in LoadExternalSubtitlesFromFileDataRef

  Fixed some VobSub video tracks displaying with wrong colors

  Better support for tracks with delayed start times

  Fixed MPEG1/2 in Matroska playing out of order

  Fixed a crash opening files while they were being downloaded

  Vertical text is re-enabled and works somewhat better

Perian 1.2 weighs in at 3.3MB and requires Mac OS X 10.4.7 or later.
