+<a name="0.8.12"></a><h3>June 1, 2014</h3>
+Today, we update our latest release series 0.8 with the release
+of <a href="download.html#release_0.8">Libav 0.8.12</a>. This release
+contains several security and bug fixes. Among others, several bugs that
+lead to crashes during playback have been fixed in the H.264 and many
+other decoders.
+This release contains many potentially security relevant corrections.
+For details, please refer to the verbose
+<a href="http://git.libav.org/?p=libav.git;a=blob;f=Changelog;hb=refs/tags/v0.8.12">
+Changelog file</a>.
+We intend to discontinue updates for the 0.8 release branch unless there
+is significant demand for an 0.8.12 release. If such a release becomes
+necessary in the future, please do not hesitate to get in contact with
+us, preferably via email or via a bugzilla entry. Otherwise, this is
+most likely the last update of this release branch.
+We encourage distributors and system integrators to update, and share
+their patches against our release branches.
