After 8 months of hard work, we are glad to announce the release of Kdenlive 0.5. Kdenlive is a non linear video editor for the KDE environnment. Improved stability and many new features have been added since Kdenlive 0.4.
Being based on the the MLT video framework and the FFMPEG project, Kdenlive can work with image, audio and video files of various formats. All these formats can be mixed in your project on an unlimited number of audio and video tracks. Thanks to the MLT framework, Kdenlive 0.5 now supports HDV editing as well as DV and more.
New features include:
+ New image formats
Added support for gimp xcf and exr.
Other supported formats are: png, jpeg, gif (non animated), xcf, exr, tiff, svg, mp3, vorbis, wav, flash, mpeg, avi, dv, wmv,... You can even insert another Kdenlive project in the timeline!
+ Effects and Transitions
Many fixes, and effects and transitions can now be copied from a clip to another.

Theora export is now available if FFMPEG was compiled with theora support.
Improved markers, allow insertion of of several clips in one operation, added "remove empty space" feature, multi clip selection tool

Overlay project timecode on the video preview. Click in monitor to play / pause, mouse wheel to seek, multi track view (monitor is split in 4 zones, each one showing a different track),
