While we have been looking towards an FFmpeg 1.0 release for nearly one year, the version 1.0 release of the popular FFmpeg library was finally tagged after being in development for more than one decade.
The initial release of this open-source multi-media library came in December of 2000, but only now twelve years later has it hit the over-emphasized 1.0 milestone. Michael Niedermayer, the official FFmpeg maintainer since 2004, mentioned on the developers list that he uploaded the 1.0 release. However, he's not updating the FFmpeg main page until after he's got "a bit of sleep", so the official announcement is likely still a couple of hours out.
