We are proud to announce the first maintenance release for the 16.12 cycle. Besides the usual bugfixes and usability improvements this release also marks the official release of the Windows port.
Last summer, thanks to a Google Summer of Code slot, Joseph Joshua started to work on a Windows port of Kdenlive. Vincent Pinon then continued to work on it and we are excited to offer today the much expected first version of Kdenlive for Windows. This is a first testing version, zipped in a folder that does not require an install. You must however separately install FFmpeg, following the simple instructions provided on the download page.
Packaging effort is also going on the Linux side, with an up to date Appimage and *Ubuntu PPA containing the latest release, so you have no excuse not to try Kdenlive.
You can go straight to our download page to get the instructions to install Kdenlive 16.12.1
Kdenlive is an open source video editing software, based on the MLT framework and FFmpeg libraries. We are a small team and are always welcoming new contributors.
We hold a monthly IRC Kdenlive café where users and developers meet, and you can also exchange on our forum or on our mailing list. Some great tutorials are also available from the toolbox section of our website.
We are part of the KDE community, which provides, among other, all the infrastructure for Kdenlive.
Donations are always welcome: https://www.kde.org/community/donations/?app=kdenlive
