Release notes 

This is the first official release of OpenShot Video Editor.


View the full changelog

Bumping version to 1.0.0 beta 1

Fixed the file to handle invalid lock files,
and not break if a non-integer is in the file

When opening a project, it now prompts to the user
if any resource files are missing

Fixed the Render() method to correctly clear all 4 canvases.
This was required to change themes correctly.

Changed the time format to display: hh:mm:ss:frame

Transition snapping: Transitions now snap to the nearest
clip or the play-head

Updated the translation strings in the POT file

Added a new profile: hdv_720_24p

Added 2 new themes:
simple - with smaller icons for small screens
blue_flat - a flat blue theme, with no glass or gloss
Also, added theme thumbnails to the preferences window

Improved Title Editor to show different titles for
4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios (so they don't get squished)

Replaced all titles in OpenShot with 29 new title
templates (both in 4:3 and 16:9) ratios

Added 28 new transitions. All have been created by scratch,
using a combination of Gimp, Inkscape, and Blender.

Adding Effects from the clip properties window has been
fixed to correctly add audio filters.

Clip property window has been fixed to correctly change the IN
and OUT values, without getting stuck (as before)

Clip property window would occasionally crash due to a SDL
and gtk threading issue. This has been fixed, and should never
crash again!!! The video thread now closes the clip property
window when it's done doing it's thing... and thus no more

The main window has been fixed to correctly recognize the
maximized state, and correctly resize the window and vertical
panes. The saving and restoring of window state feels much improved.

Removed the camera icon from the main window, changed some icons,
and trying to clean up the UI just a bit. Also, I removed the
"Open Project" toolbar icon, and replaced it with a "New Project"
button. Trying to remove the confusion of "Opening a project" vs
"Importing files".

Tweaked the file to include the new 4:3 and 16:9 titles.

Improved the MAN page documentation

Improved the GenerateXML() method on the clip object to
better determine the IN, OUT, and Blank nodes. This seems
to fix many issues due to ntsc framerates (29.97), and
other animation and transition syncing issues.

Fixed the open project code to ignore files that have a %
character in it. Image sequences were firing off a
missing file alert.

Added a "delete-event" to the clip properties window,
so it won't crash when a user clicks the "close" icon on
the window. I guess I never tested that before. I always
used the Cancel or Apply buttons.

Updated the AUTHORS file

Updated the Info class to better reflect what
contributors helped... and how they helped

Update the About page to use the Credits
from the Info class

Added all translations from LaunchPad into the
locale folder (also added a script to auto
compile all of the PO files)

Fixed the rotate effect label (X and Y lables)

Fixed the missing Color picker in the Chroma Key
Settings. Thanks to the patch from Andy.

Fixed the file to include translatable tooltips
for foriegn languages.

Added code from Andy to store and retrieve the
current frame number during the RefreshXML method.
