17.0818 Aug 2017 04:55 minor feature: Kdenlive 17.08 is released bringing minor fixes and improvements. Some of the highlights include fixing the Freeze effect and resolving inconsistent checkbox displays in the effects pannel. Downloaded transition Lumas now appear in the interface. Now it is possible to assign a keyboard shortcut for the Extract Frame feature also a name is now suggested based on the frame number. Navigation of clip markers in the timeline behave as expected upon opening the project. Audio clicks issues are resolved although this requires building MLT from git or wait for a release. In this cycle we ve also bumped the Windows version from Alpha to Beta.

Windows icons are delivered in icontheme.rcc. Fix compilation. Fix custom profile not found on creation. Fix loop zone. In comparison to previous versions this was the least exciting development cycle, in terms of new features, since all focus has been on the code refactoring which will bring more stability and new features.

Fix dbus communication broken by recent move of KDBusService. Move DBus and force icon theme above KAboutData. Fix go to previous keyframe not going to clip start if no keyframe at start.
16.1216 Dec 2016 02:24 major feature: The 16.12 release cycle brings the much requested Rotoscoping effect back and new effects, Library improvements, OGG render profile, UI fixes and as with every release much more stability. This release marks the first step towards implementing Advanced Trimming Tools which will be introduced in 17.04. For that to happen we are starting a refactoring of the timeline making this feature easier to implement and preventing/fixing corruption issues. Here are some of the highlights of the release: Projects: Allow custom cache folder. Portable projects: to allow moving a project to another computer / drive, we now use relative paths for clips that are inside the project s directory. Library When you (re) use the same image sequence clip, title clip, or even color clip multiple times in the same libary clip, such image sequences and titles will only be added once to your project bin. The way Kdenlive expands library clips containing multiple tracks should be more intuitively now: place the library clip on the topmost track, it will be expanded down from there if multiple tracks are required. If there aren t enough tracks below, yet enough tracks when taking also above tracks into account, then Kdenlive will make use of the above tracks too. Kdenlive now correctly expands clips immediately below a transition, instead of reporting an error. Error reporting has been improved in general for expanding library clips. Effects: Rotoscoping effect Added a UI for LUT3D effect Added tripod parameter to vidstab Improved motion tracker Rendering: Added OGG render profile User interface: Download render profiles, wipes and title templates directly from the interface. Added a context menu option to directly extract single frames to the project bin. Added new configuration option for automatically raising the properties pane when selecting certain timeline elements.
16.08.213 Oct 2016 06:05 minor feature: This is the second service release of the 16.08 cycle with a total of 36 commits fixing many keyframe related problems as well as improvements to proxy clip rendering, user interface, workflow and compilation issues. This cycle saw the launch of the Toolbox section of the website, a collection of posts covering in depth reviews of new and existing tools and features. Commits Fix MLT Playlist proxying after recent proxy profile changes Fix proxy profiles to keep aspect ratio Fix broken keyframes on image/title clips Fix automatic playback of file with space in name Fix simplekeyframe effects (eg. blur) allowing keyframe one frame after end of clip after resize Change defaults for Color selection effect so that we don t get a black screen at startup Fix Make DocTools dep optional Fix scalable application icon Make DocTools dep optional Warn about resize failure Don t unnecessarily expand effect stack when unselecting a transition Fix several geometry effects broken on locale with comma separator (french, german, ) Fix importing library clip hanging with relative paths, improve error reporting Add the namespace to the appdata file Fix copy/paste of keyframes in transitions Add option to remove keyframes after cursor position Only allow importing position if keyframes have no width/height info Fix header Fix compilation Fix copy/paste of keyframes Fix several issues when editing an animation parameter in timeline (keyframes corruption) Fix disappearing keyframes in animated parameters (Transform effect and Composite+Transform transition) Fix keyframe type icons Fix incorrect initialization of Composite transition Fix crash when changing project fps while a clip was selected in timeline Slow motion clips: don t mix clip state with strobe param from older project files Fix possible crash when closing a project or deleting a clip with subclips (...)
16.08.109 Sep 2016 02:44 minor feature: We are happy to announce a new dot release with some improvements and various fixes. We also celebrate some code contribution from Harald Albrecht (TheDive0) hoping to see more devs joining our team. Improved Workflow: Persistent Directories (now Kdenlive remembers where you last opened and/or saved a project; responsive cursor (when inserting clips in the timeline the cursor in the timeline will go to the end of the inserted clip making the workflow more fluid and shortcut friendly); configurable transition duration (the default duration of new transitions can now be adjusted default-duration). Interface: Rounded corners (new option to make clip corners rounded or square); new profiles (added 50fps and 60fps trancoding profiles). Bug Fixes: fix frame and titles not saved if extension not explicitly set in some config; revert stupid error in thumb ratio; unbreak resize one item in group with ctrl+click; fix aspect ratio of thumbnails when project dar != 1.0; fix Kdenlive / project settings displaying wrong profile info when using 1440x1080 profiles; fix possible crash on exit; fix small memleak; fix memory corruption in thumb creation; fix memleak; fix compilation with gcc6, the code was comparing a char* and a QChar; fix proxy clips adding copy to project bin (recent regression); fix several issues with track effects corruption; fix crash on redo group move; more libasan mem fixes; attempt to fix opening project crash; fix crash on audiospectrum display; try to fix possible crash caused by string copy; fix crash and display of audio spectrum; fix size of effect buttons; integrate master effect update and state change in undo system; fix split audio track; add action to remove all preview zones; fix path problem when trying to stabilize several clips; fix icon not fully displayed in render jobs list; more fixes for transcoded clips showing up in wrong folder; fix transcoded clips showing up in wrong folder; fix use timeline zone for insert shortcut, etc.
16.0819 Aug 2016 19:02 major feature: Kdenlive 16.08.0 marks a milestone in the project s history bringing it a step closer to becoming a full-fledged professional tool. The highlights of this release are: 3 Point Editing Insert or overwrite a timeline region with a clip region. Delete or lift timeline regions. Also, the long-missing insert mode is now enabled and fully functional: simply drop clips onto the timeline and existing clips will move accordingly to make room. Timeline effect rendering Sometimes, you just have too much effects or transitions in your timeline to be able to play it in realtime (you can see on the video, it can only play 13 frames per seconds). This is where this new feature helps you: it pre-renders parts of the timeline so that they can be played in realtime. And you can continue working on other parts of the timeline while Kdenlive is working in the background for you. Stability and Improvements Over 370 bug fixes and code commits including various improvements to: Titler DVD Wizard Timeline refactoring User interface Audio mixing Editing Faster keyboard workflow New icons New profiles Fix memleaks and corruptions Profile Selection UI For a full list of changes please visit the full log page. Library Widget The new Library Widget allows to copy and paste sequences between different projects. Track header visual optimization Ability to control the width of the track header by dragging its right border left or right. Track compositing preview Individual track control has been replaced by a global option in timeline toolbar to switch compositing modes between: High Quality, Preview and None. Start-up wizard removal Kdenlive s start-up wizard is now removed and will appear only if a configuration problem is detected. Kdenlive now starts up picking the best default options (including NTSC/PAL framerate depending on your region). Cached Data Manager Krita support
