XviD owned ?? oohhhh yeahhh BloodBR ownz XviD - sorry admin firstname.lastname@example.org
w0w, thats freaking crazy!
I got this from /. more hits from the same h4x00r group:
you can look for some pretty cool things in post 1.0 builds .
2004/05/17 -- XVID site cracked. Unfortunately, right after we released the long-awaited XviD 1.0 final, the XviD web server got cracked and many files were deleted. Whoever did this, we actually don't find this funny at all. We're currently working hard to recover from this attack. However it will take us (at least) a couple of days to be back. Meanwhile, we've mirrored the 1.0 final announcement below and you can still download all the XviD 1.0 final source code packages from the files section at the bottom of this page.We're very sorry for this inconvenience!The XVID team
It's very sad that the XviD has been cracked. XviD is an open-source and volunteer based project, with no profitable goals. I can't understand why some one thinks doing this kind of mess. Go deface greedy companies sites but not free software.
Perhaps the greedy companies are hacking the Xvid site.

Will we EVER see a binary version of Xvid? Of course I know about unofficial builds blah blah blah but I think Xvid will always be underground if they can never release binaries on their website.
We are happy to announce a new release. This one is a bugfix release only.It is source and binary compatible with the previous version. You arestrongly encouraged to use this new version.Changes since 1.0.0 final:* xvidcore - DC misprediction caused by missing value clipping (this one for real). - Fixed bugs triggered by 1fps sequences in decoder. - Fixed bug in trellis that was causing block skipping in later stages. - Fixed some ME buglet that could cause suboptimal results for bframes.* VFW frontend - Fixed error in bitrate calc when given bitrate and size (2.4%). - Added ICM compatibility for Office Suites (OpenOffice.org, MS Office...). - Added more known audio filetypes.* Debian dir - removed from the release tarball in an effort to get the package into SID as a non native package.The files are available in the download section of XviD.org:http://www.xvid.org/downloads.html
