413
  Add a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle packet pts

417
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
418
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped at the next
419

420

    
421
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
422
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
423
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
424
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
425
  that implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
426
  When the lock manager is registered, FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
427
  correctly in a multi-threaded application.
428

    
429
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet()
430

431

    
432
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree()
433
  Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
434
  (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).
435

    
436
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
437
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
438
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
439
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
440
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
441

    
442
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space()
443
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
444

    
445
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
446
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
447
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
448

    
449
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
450
  Convert the pixel formats PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
451
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, into enum PixelFormat values.
452
  Conversely PIX_FMT_RGB32, PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32 and
453
  PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 are now macros.
454
  avcodec_get_pix_fmt() now recognizes the "rgb32" and "bgr32" aliases.
455
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
456
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
457

    
458
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
459
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
460
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
461
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
462

    
463
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
464
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
465
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
466
  instead.
467

    
468
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
469
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
470
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
471
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
472
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
473
  was changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
474
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
475
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
476

    
477
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
478
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
479
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
480
  includes the following structure fields:
481
    - AVFormatContext.title
482
    - AVFormatContext.author
483
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
484
    - AVFormatContext.comment

    - AVProgram.name
493
    - AVChapter.title
