VLC 2.1 is now out. Congratulations and Thanks to the Videolan team.
VLC Remote is ready; We have recently updated our apps on iOS, Android and WP7 to support VLC 2.1.
The only thing you need to do is make sure to run the latest version of the setup helper, and the latest version of VLC Remote after upgrading VLC.
The key new feature for remote control is that you can now set a password to control VLC. Click on the advanced tab of the setup helper if you want to select your own password (If not, we just use a default password for you).
