  avfilter_make_format_list(enum PixelFormat *pix_fmts).
102

    
103
2009-10-18 - r20272 - lavfi 1.0.0 - avfilter_get_video_buffer()
104

107
2009-10-07 - r20189 - lavfi 0.5.1 - AVFilterPic
108
  Added w and h fields to AVFilterPic.
109

    
110
2009-06-22 - r19250 - lavf 52.34.1 - AVFormatContext.packet_size
111
  This is now an unsigned int instead of a signed int.
112

    
113
2009-06-19 - r19222 - lavc 52.32.0 - AVSubtitle.pts
114
  Added a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle's packet
115
  PTS in AV_TIME_BASE. Some subtitle de-/encoders (e.g. XSUB) will
116
  not work right without this.
117

    
118
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
119
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped for the next
120
  major version. Use AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY instead.
121

    
122
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
123
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
124
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
125
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
126
  the implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
127
  When the lock manager is registered FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
128
  correct also in a multi-threaded application.
129

    
130
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet
131
  av_free_packet() is no longer an inline function. It is now exported.
132

    
133
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree
134
  Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
135
  (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).
136

    
137
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
138
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
139
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
140
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
141
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
142

    
143
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space
144
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
145

    
146
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
147
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
148
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
149

    
150
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
151
  Make the pixel formats: PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
152
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, defined as enum
153
  PixelFormat values, and viceversa make PIX_FMT_RGB32,
154
  PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32, PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 defined as macros.
155
  Also make avcodec_get_pix_fmt() recognize the "rgb32" and "bgr32"
156
  aliases.
157
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
158
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
159

    
160
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
161
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
162
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
163
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
164

    
165
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
166
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
167
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
168
  instead.
169

    
170
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
171
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
172
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
173
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
174
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
175
  were changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
176
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
177
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
178

    
179
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
180
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
181
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
182
  includes the following structure fields:
183
    - AVFormatContext.title
184
    - AVFormatContext.author
185
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
186
    - AVFormatContext.comment
187
    - AVFormatContext.album
188
    - AVFormatContext.year
189
    - AVFormatContext.track
190

194
    - AVProgram.name
195
    - AVChapter.title
