480
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
481

484
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
485
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
486
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
487
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
488
  that implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
489
  When the lock manager is registered, FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
490
  correctly in a multi-threaded application.
491

2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
500
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
501
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
502
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
503
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
504

    
505
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space()

509
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
510
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
511

    
512
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
513
  Convert the pixel formats PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
514
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, into enum PixelFormat values.
515
  Conversely PIX_FMT_RGB32, PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32 and
516
  PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 are now macros.
517
  avcodec_get_pix_fmt() now recognizes the "rgb32" and "bgr32" aliases.
518
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
519
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
520

    
521
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
522
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
523
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
524
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
525

    
526
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
527
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
528
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
529
  instead.
530

    
531
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
532
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
533
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
534
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
535
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
536
  was changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
537
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
538
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
539

    
540
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
541
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
542
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
543
  includes the following structure fields:
