Additionally, the 4MLinux 45.0 release introduces numerous new printing drivers, an updated FFmpeg version with enhanced video scaling (resizing) support through the zimg library, improved handling of stereo audio using the libbs2b Bauer stereophonic-to-binaural DSP effect library in FFmpeg and MPlayer, and includes the CHAMP Kong game as a DOSBox package and the Basilisk web browser as a downloadable extension.
