The new version is mostly a bug fix release after the player's major v3.0 release recently. This version improves HEVC video playback support on macOS, Android and iOS platforms. It also speeds up and fixes issues with Chromecast support on all platforms, including Windows.
Furthermore, MKV seeking is finally significantly faster. There's also bunch of minor bugs that have been fixed, like the one that caused the software to crash after closing it on some Windows versions.
You can download the Windows versions from AfterDawn's own download servers:
VLC for Windows
VLC for 64-bit Windows
Mobile editions for Android and iOS can be found from their respective app stores.
