Kdenlive 0.8.2 is released

We are proud to announce the immediate release of Kdenlive 0.8.2. We encourage all users to upgrade.

For this release, we did put a lot of energy into bug fixing and stability (more than 140 issues solved) to bring you a better editing experience. We have solved a lot of project corruption issues, and the introduction of the automatic backup feature means you should hopefully enjoy Kdenlive better than ever!

Among the features improvements, the proxy clips (clips replacing the original ones when editing a format that is too slow to edit, for example AVCHD) should work fine now, HDMI capture should also be improved (feedback welcome) and some GUI multi threading should make operations a bit smoother.

As usual, we also benefit from the latest improvements in MLT, a new version (0.7.6) was released today that improves stability and fixes important issues for users of non english locale.

We are also getting closer to the KDE community, and the first step was to start a documentation effort, which means Kdenlive is now distributed with a "Quick Start Guide" that should show you the basic steps to start working in Kdenlive. This help is also available and editable online on the KDE Userbase Wiki.

For a detailed list of changes, see our Kdenlive 0.8.2 information page.

And since we want Kdenlive everywhere, you can now also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, identi.ca.

A big thank you to all the developers, translators and users who helped to make this great release.

Source code can be downloaded from our sourceforge page, and packages will be announced as usual on our download page when available.

Support can be found in our forums and issues reported on our bugtracker.


Kdenlive, we love you!

Congrats to everyone involved in the development of this great piece of software!! :)

Congratulation ! this release sound fantastic !

That's great... just in time !!

Many thanks dev's really enjoying your hard work. Congrats on new release.

I wanted to give a big thank you to the people giving their free time towards this project (And MLT too!!). It's the first FOSS video editing software that I feel that I can actually work with. I've been trying it off and on over that last year or so, and it's now starting to reach a level of stability I feel reasonably comfortable with.

There's been powerful editors like cinelerra that had all the grace of a gorilla. And several editors that looked nice with almost 0 functionality.

I really hope that the work you guys have put into this helps to draw in more of a community as well as developers. It holds lots of promise for growing into a very nice professional editing tool.

There's always more features that people (especially people like me) will request, but don't let yourself get overwhelmed. Pace yourself and keep it fun.

Thank you. Kdenlive is really a great video editor!
