  not work right without this.
215

    
216
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
217
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped at the next

  major version. Use AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY instead.
219

    
220
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
221
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
222
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
223
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
224
  that implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
225
  When the lock manager is registered, FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
226
  correctly in a multi-threaded application.
227

    
228
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet()
229

230

    
231
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree()

234

    
235
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
236
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
237
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
238
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
239
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
240

    
241
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space()
242
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
243

    
244
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
245
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
246
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
247

    
248
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
249
  Convert the pixel formats PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
250
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, into enum PixelFormat values.
251
  Conversely PIX_FMT_RGB32, PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32 and
252
  PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 are now macros.
253
  avcodec_get_pix_fmt() now recognizes the "rgb32" and "bgr32" aliases.
254
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
255
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
256

    
257
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
258
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
259
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
260
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
261

    
262
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
263
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
264
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
265
  instead.
266

    
267
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
268
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
269
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
270
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
271
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
272
  was changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
273
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
274
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
275

    
276
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
277
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
278
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
279
  includes the following structure fields:

    - AVFormatContext.title
