We are about to release a new official pack. The main motivation is that 
the H264 decoder we are using is too old and it cannot decode some of 
the new files floating around. And the pack is supposed to support such 
basic files with codecs we support.

I waited a little bit longer after rc2 because I wanted to integrate the 
new SimpleBlock and the new header compression method. So that we don't 
make files that can't be played by our pack. But it turns out creating 
such files in a stable way in mkvmerge may take long and won't be 
enabled by default in mkvmerge. So I think it's OK to release the pack 
ASAP, as long as Haali is confident with his support for the 2 new 

Apart from that, the pack is ready to go. I'll release a rc3 before 
making it public to make sure Haali's new pack has no problem when 
installed from the pack.
