Update Information:

This updates xine-lib to the upstream 1.1.16 release. This fixes several bugs,
including the security issues CVE-2008-5234 vector 1, CVE-2008-5236,
CVE-2008-5237, CVE-2008-5239, CVE-2008-5240 vectors 3 & 4 and CVE-2008-5243. See

the full list of changes.    In addition, the Fedora xine-lib package now
includes the demuxers for the MPEG container format, which are not patent-
encumbered. (The decoders for actual MPEG video and audio data are still
excluded due to software patents.)
