406
  Change the interface of avfilter_make_format_list() from
407
  avfilter_make_format_list(int n, ...) to

421
  Add a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle packet pts

425
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
426
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped at the next
427
  major version. Use AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY instead.
428

    
429
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
430
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
431
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
432
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
433
  that implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
434
  When the lock manager is registered, FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
435
  correctly in a multi-threaded application.
436

    
437
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet()
438

439

    
440
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree()
441
  Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
442
  (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).
443

    
444
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
445
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
446
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
447
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
448
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
449

    
450
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space()
451
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
452

    
453
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
454
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
455
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
456

    
457
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
458
  Convert the pixel formats PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
459
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, into enum PixelFormat values.
460
  Conversely PIX_FMT_RGB32, PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32 and
461
  PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 are now macros.
462
  avcodec_get_pix_fmt() now recognizes the "rgb32" and "bgr32" aliases.
463
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
464
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
465

    
466
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
467
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
468
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
469
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
470

    
471
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
472
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
473
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
474
  instead.
475

    
476
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
477
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
478
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
479
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
480
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
481
  was changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
482
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
483
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
484

    
485
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
486
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
487
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
488
  includes the following structure fields:
489
    - AVFormatContext.title
490
    - AVFormatContext.author
491
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
492
    - AVFormatContext.comment

    - AVProgram.name
501
    - AVChapter.title
