685
  Change the signature of avfilter_register() to make it return an
686
  int. This is required since now the registration operation may fail.
687

    
688
2009-11-25 - r20603 - lavu 50.5.0 - pixdesc.h API
689

700
  avfilter_make_format_list(int n, ...) to

702

    
703
2009-10-18 - r20272 - lavfi 1.0.0 - avfilter_get_video_buffer()
704

708
  Add w and h fields to AVFilterPic.
709

    
710
2009-06-22 - r19250 - lavf 52.34.1 - AVFormatContext.packet_size

714
  Add a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle packet pts
715

  not work right without this.
717

    
718
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
719
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped at the next
720
  major version. Use AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY instead.
721

    
722
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
723
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
724
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
725
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
726
  that implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
727
  When the lock manager is registered, FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
728
  correctly in a multi-threaded application.
729

    
730
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet()
731
  av_free_packet() is no longer an inline function. It is now exported.
732

    
733
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree()
734
  Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
735
  (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).
736

    
737
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
738
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
739
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
740
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
741
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
742

    
743
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space()
744
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
745

    
746
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
747
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
748
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
749

    
750
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
751
  Convert the pixel formats PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
752
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, into enum PixelFormat values.
753
  Conversely PIX_FMT_RGB32, PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32 and
754
  PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 are now macros.
755
  avcodec_get_pix_fmt() now recognizes the "rgb32" and "bgr32" aliases.
756
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
757
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
758

    
759
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
760
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
761
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
762
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
763

    
764
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
765
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
766
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
767
  instead.
768

    
769
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
770
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
771
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
772
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
773
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
774
  was changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
775
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
776
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
777

    
778
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
779
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
780
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
781
  includes the following structure fields:
782
    - AVFormatContext.title
783
    - AVFormatContext.author
784
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
785
    - AVFormatContext.comment
786
    - AVFormatContext.album
787
    - AVFormatContext.year
788
    - AVFormatContext.track

    - AVProgram.provider_name
793
    - AVProgram.name
794
    - AVChapter.title
