This page describes the version 0.8.2 of Kdenlive that was released on the 31st of October 2011.
Kdenlive 0.8.2 is mostly a bug fix release. An automatic backup feature was introduced, and the v4l / decklink capture was rewritten to use MLT instead of implementing our own capture routines, which should improve the webcam support. Apart from that, we did put lots of efforts into bug fixing and stability, the 0.8 release had many problems with corrupted project files that should now be solved. We also improved the handling of missing clips and proxy support which should now work correctly.
We encourage all users to upgrade to 0.8.2.
A (almost) complete changelog is available here.
