Think thats some bad wording. It should rather have been (changed part 
between **):
"This morning we find out from Stefan Huskamp that a new  *EasyVDR 
(Linux VDR Distribution (Video Disk Recorder 
<http://www.cadsoft.de/vdr/>))* release is coming soon and it too will 
feature support for the Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix 
through its use of the Xine library."

Furthermore i hope that thisis not blocking the efforts of AMD/ATI and 
Intel (or better is pushing this two) and that in the end something 
along VA-API is being used.

For sure - better if it would have been more precise ;)
