2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
346
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
347
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
348
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
349
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
350

    
351
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space()
352
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
353

    
354
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
355
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
356
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.

2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
359
  Convert the pixel formats PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
360
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, into enum PixelFormat values.
361
  Conversely PIX_FMT_RGB32, PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32 and
362
  PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 are now macros.
363
  avcodec_get_pix_fmt() now recognizes the "rgb32" and "bgr32" aliases.
364
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
365
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
366

    
367
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
368
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
369
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
370
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.

2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
373
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
374
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
375
  instead.
376

    
377
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
378
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
379
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
380
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
381
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
382
  was changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
383
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
384
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
385

    
386
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
387
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
388
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
389
  includes the following structure fields:
390
    - AVFormatContext.title
391
    - AVFormatContext.author
392
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
393
    - AVFormatContext.comment
394
    - AVFormatContext.album
395
    - AVFormatContext.year
396
    - AVFormatContext.track
397
    - AVFormatContext.genre
