Kdenlive development has been very active since our November sprint focusing on the 24.02 KDE Mega Release, that will be based on Qt6 (but is still compatible with Qt5) and KF6. In addition to the essential porting tasks, we dedicated efforts to fixing numerous bugs to enhance stability and introduced some exciting new features, which will be detailed in a forthcoming post. Noteworthy progress has also been made on the packaging front. Apart from Linux and Windows versions, we are thrilled to announce the first native version for Mac Arm processors.

The final release is scheduled for the end of the month so now is the time for the community to help us test the release candidate version and report any regressions or bugs found. Leave your feedback in the comments below, report them on our bugtracker or tell us about it in our next Kdenlive online Café on the 9th of February at 9PM UTC.

Below, you will find links for the various binaries. Remember that this is a pre-release software recommended for testing purpose only.
