9514fc5 Jonathan Thomas on 3/22/17 at 2:02 PM Removing app.processEvents from transitions and effects models, due to crashes on OS X. Also, it doesn't make much of a difference anymore.
5a9712d Jonathan Thomas on 3/22/17 at 2:36 AM Removing uploads folder from mac build script
01a1d6d Jonathan Thomas on 3/22/17 at 2:05 AM Removing old effect meta data and old effect icons. New effects will have different translatable meta data.

3dff4be Jonathan Thomas on 3/21/17 at 12:42 AM Fixing a few small Title editor issues on Windows
af11e40 Jonathan Thomas on 3/20/17 at 5:10 PM Disabling audio in OS X preview dialog (due to some libopenshot issue which crashes audio support at that point). This is a temp solution.
d0831f5 Jonathan Thomas on 3/20/17 at 1:40 PM Improving preview window: showing waveforms for audio files, better kill logic (for the preview thread), disabling audio for clips with only video tracks. Clearing cache and closing clip/timeline after preview.
e7de214 Jonathan Thomas on 3/20/17 at 2:34 AM Generating new translation template
39c59cf Jonathan Thomas on 3/20/17 at 2:33 AM Improve cutting/splitting dialog to use Timeline() object, to support all possible media types (images, videos, etc...) and maintain correct aspect ratio. Optimize for initial size of preview widget. Adding new preview window (instead of using the main window).
dc08962 Jonathan Thomas on 3/19/17 at 4:17 PM Added new "Edit Title" and "Duplicate Title" menus, to quickly allow for editing existing titles, or making a copy (and then editing) an existing title. Also fixed some icon/theme issues with the main windows and certain Actions.
492f68c Jonathan Thomas on 3/18/17 at 7:41 PM Improving zoom scrollbars again, this time to center on the user's mouse cursor. Hover over the clip you want to zoom on, and CTRL+scroll wheel to zoom in/out centered on the mouse. Also, if using the slider control, lock scroll bar on left side of timeline.
f1e1aea Jonathan Thomas on 3/18/17 at 6:44 PM Updating translation template
528e953 Jonathan Thomas on 3/18/17 at 6:43 PM Saving / Loading zoom scale of timeline in project. Improving timeline zooming to keep scrollbars better positioned during zoom. Reset scrollbars when loading/creating new project (back to top/left).
0c26706 Jonathan Thomas on 3/17/17 at 10:47 PM New UI for title editor and animated titles (listview with thumbnails). Titles no longer require the save dialog. New ASSETS folder to hold temp titles. Setting focus to fileTreeview on launch, so the properties filter doesn't auto get tab focus (preventing certain keypress shortcuts). All child windows now center on parent window.
c94e08c Jonathan Thomas on 3/15/17 at 4:24 PM Adding new welcome tutorial message, which contains a checkbox for disabling anonymous error and metrics reporting. That can also be adjusted in the Preferences, but it has been often requested to allow new users to opt-out of error reporting.
203f6b6 Jonathan Thomas on 3/15/17 at 2:20 AM Fixing regression on passing keypresses to timeline. CTRL and SHIFT keys have special uses on the timeline.
2c8649a Jonathan Thomas on 3/15/17 at 2:07 AM Reducing snapping to 10 pixels. Fixing bug when updating new properties for a clip. Fixing regression on reading large log files.
77d2410 Jonathan Thomas on 3/14/17 at 11:44 AM Send MaxSize to Timeline object after the delay. Pause video on Export and Profile dialogs. Improved Cache clearing. Better protections in Preview thread while initializing main window.
af6268a Jonathan Thomas on 3/14/17 at 2:02 AM When resizing the video widget, the max size is sent to libopenshot::Timeline, to help optimize the preview for a new size. Also, fixed the log file scanning to be way, way faster, and only load the end of the file.
62d078f Jonathan Thomas on 3/13/17 at 7:55 PM Fixing regression with slicing clips (and razor tool). Also, switching snapping logic to compare pixels (not time), so it's still useful at close and far zoom levels.
6aba801 Jonathan Thomas on 3/10/17 at 12:53 AM Improvments to frame accuracy, especially when zoomed in at max zoom. Fixed regression with selection dropdown. Fixed crash when pasting keyframes onto a clip/transition. Detecting max size of video player widget (which will soon be used in an optimization).
51b7333 Jonathan Thomas on 3/6/17 at 3:20 AM Refactoring and improving preview playback of files, and preview playback during resize/trim (which now maintains aspect ratio correctly). Also, fixed bug in transform callback, where transformation was not being disabled when selecting a different clip.
0aa24fd Jonathan Thomas on 3/6/17 at 1:46 AM Dramatically increased speed of selecting and unselecting large numbers of clips/transitions. Fixed small bug with Next Marker and Previous Marker buttons (not handling position 0 correctly). Refactor loading properties for selected items, to improve speed.
5f8384a Jonathan Thomas on 3/5/17 at 5:40 PM Improve speed on Transform method, since it gets called quite often during project load (due to clearing selected clips and transitions)
8a17379 Jonathan Thomas on 3/5/17 at 5:15 PM Replacing razor icon with edit-cut icon, to stay consistent with older versions of OpenShot
f8966df Jonathan Thomas on 3/5/17 at 5:09 PM Refactoring load project flow to take advantage of the new locks in libopenshot (which allow for quicker updates to the live preview after a change is made). Also fixed a regression in the Transform tool, which was causing slow delays when opening projects. And fixed a regression detecting missing files that contain expressions (like blender animations).
1a4e1d0 Jonathan Thomas on 3/5/17 at 4:41 AM Adding full functionality to the new razor tool. Clicking on a clip or transitions cuts it. Holding CTRL and SHIFT modify the razor to only keep the left or right side.
00a9384 Jonathan Thomas on 3/4/17 at 2:45 AM Committing some setup code for razor mode. It doesn't do anything quite yet... but soon it will return
ec2ca07 Jonathan Thomas on 3/4/17 at 2:08 AM Make effects container on a clip visible on hover (regardless of how small the clip is). Also, tweak tooltips of clip title so they don't cover up the menu button and effects.
336e08b Jonathan Thomas on 3/4/17 at 1:17 AM Prompt user to save before creating or opening new project file (if needed)
4297843 Jonathan Thomas on 3/1/17 at 1:44 AM Adding in Unity launcher progress bar support. Each OS is handled differently, and the Linux launcher seemed like the lowest hanging fruit. This should work from both the AppImage and PPA versions.
bb6596f Jonathan Thomas on 3/1/17 at 12:21 AM Refactoring export dialog code, to create it's own Timeline object and clear the internal preview cache. I think this will be much more stable in the long run, vs attaching to the original Timeline object. Also exposing the export progress to the main window.
c34f768 Jonathan Thomas on 2/28/17 at 5:08 PM Updating Blender compatability to 2.78, since the API has changed a bit. Also fixing the regex for detecting preview images from Blender, since the output from Blender is now a bit different.
e5d1cb9 Jonathan Thomas on 2/28/17 at 4:58 PM (committed by GitHub) Merge pull request #398 from mixedbredie/master
31b9569 Jonathan Thomas on 2/28/17 at 4:50 PM Prompting user to find missing files when opening a project, and updating translation template.
359b8d8 Jonathan Thomas on 2/27/17 at 8:23 AM Fixing regression on Windows with Transform feature crashing.
630fde8 Jonathan Thomas on 2/26/17 at 12:21 AM Small tweak to issue template and guidelines
8ceb4ae Jonathan Thomas on 2/26/17 at 12:19 AM Adding some github files to use a simple template for new issues, and link to contribution guidelines
80069e6 Jonathan Thomas on 2/21/17 at 5:06 PM Fixing a crash during initialization of the main window, and a crash during application exit, where threads were not being terminated correctly or safely. Also fixed a crash when closing the Split Clip dialog.
2e36588 Jonathan Thomas on 2/21/17 at 1:37 PM Always settings unique id when sending metrics, which is required or analytics ignores it
d777a12 Jonathan Thomas on 2/20/17 at 2:29 PM Refactoring some tracking code on initial install, and saving settings after launch (since some settings are updated on launch)
fe74b04 Jonathan Thomas on 2/19/17 at 1:35 AM Fixed a big bug when pasting deleted clips and transitions. Also, improved logic for "Next Marker" and "Previous Marker" buttons to include the selected items (start and end positions), to allow quickly jumping to the beginning or end of a selected clip. Also, improved Transform tool to allow transforms outside the position of the clip (i.e. before or after).
4304a54 Jonathan Thomas on 2/4/17 at 10:02 PM Adding free transform functionality, and an action to (right click menu) called "Transform". It supports moving and resizing clips in the video preview window. Also, making settings save to disk as they are changed in preferences.
5a2acb8 Jonathan Thomas on 12/29/16 at 6:02 PM Bumping version to 2.2.0-dev, for development work
353ca5b Jonathan Thomas on 12/29/16 at 5:49 PM Fixed bug with Build server version detection regex (when releasing new versions). Also, implementing framework for Transform tool, which adds selection handles to a clip, and adds new context menus. It also tracks mouse movements over the video preview widget, but those aren't finished yet.
