the release date "2007-07" is obviously wrong, and the compile date 
"2004" is correct.
the dates differ, because i migrated the webpages and did not care to 
open each and every binary to see on which date it _really_ was released.

no, the latest release packages _are_ that old...

could you post a bug-report at http://sf.net/projects/pd-gem preferrably 
with a patch (and data) that illustrates your problem? (probably it also 
crashes with a minimal DV-PAL file (e.g. only 10 frames).
it would also be good to know which version of QuickTime and 
DirectX/DriectDraw you have installed (and all the rest of your specs)

0.90 has been released released around 2004-05
0.90.0 is the same as 0.90
0.90.1 is a bugfix release for w32 released after 0.90.0
0.91.0 (== 0.91) is the upcoming release
