Kdenlive 0.7.6 released

We are glad to announce the release of Kdenlive 0.7.6, 3 months after the 0.7.5 version.

Many crashes related to effects, transitions, and timeline corruption issues were fixed, and the latest MLT version (0.4.6) that is used for this Kdenlive release also provides an improved stability, so we encourage all our users to upgrade.

The list of fixed issues can be found on our bugtracker: http://www.kdenlive.org/mantis/changelog_page.php?version_id=11

The new features are:

  • Title module: rewrite, now allows for basic animation (title zoom & scroll)
  • Track rename: users can now rename tracks
  • Composite transition: keyframes can now be moved
  • Clip management: image and audio clips are automatically monitored and updated in the timeline whenever they change on disk
  • User interface cleanup: cleaner look for timeline

Kdenlive 0.7.5 released

We are glad to announce the release of Kdenlive version 0.7.5. A new version of MLT (0.4.4) was also released today, all users are encouraged to upgrade to these new versions.

You can find more informations on the new feature in our "Discover Kdenlive 0.7.5" page.

A complete changelog of the fixed issues can be found on our bugtracker.

Development news

Hi everyone!

Here is a quick info on the recent development:

Subversion move

For all those who are getting the Kdenlive source through subversion, we just moved the development to /trunk. If you have a copy of the KDE4 branch, go into it and do:
svn switch https://kdenlive.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/kdenlive/trunk/kdenlive

New features

Some of the features that are implemented in the development version and will be part of the next Kdenlive 0.7.3 release:

  • Rendering scripts: You can now create rendering scripts that will allow you to launch the rendering whenever you want by just starting a bash script (image 1)
  • Web updates: We are implementing content update through the web. That means you will be able to download new rendering profiles from within Kdenlive, and sharing will be made easier, more info on that later (image 2)

Fixing the last bugs in 0.7
