28
  Add a slice_dir parameter to avfilter_draw_slice().
29

    
30
2009-11-26 - r20611 - lavfi 1.11.0 - AVFilter

  Introduce the avfilter_next() function.
35

    
36
2009-11-25 - r20605 - lavfi 1.9.0 - avfilter_register()
37
  Change the signature of avfilter_register() to make it return an
38
  int. This is required since now the registration operation may fail.
39

    
40
2009-11-25 - r20603 - lavu 50.5.0 - pixdesc.h API
41

43
2009-10-27 - r20385 - lavfi 1.5.0 - AVFilter.next
44
  Add a next field to AVFilter, this is used for simplifying the
45
  registration and management of the registered filters.
46

    
47
2009-10-23 - r20356 - lavfi 1.4.1 - AVFilter.description
48
  Add a description field to AVFilter.
49

    
50
2009-10-19 - r20302 - lavfi 1.3.0 - avfilter_make_format_list()
51
  Change the interface of avfilter_make_format_list() from
52
  avfilter_make_format_list(int n, ...) to
53
  avfilter_make_format_list(enum PixelFormat *pix_fmts).
54

    
55
2009-10-18 - r20272 - lavfi 1.0.0 - avfilter_get_video_buffer()
56
  Make avfilter_get_video_buffer() recursive and add the w and h
57
  parameters to it.
58

    
59
2009-10-07 - r20189 - lavfi 0.5.1 - AVFilterPic
60
  Added w and h fields to AVFilterPic.
61

    
62
2009-06-22 - r19250 - lavf 52.34.1 - AVFormatContext.packet_size
63
  This is now an unsigned int instead of a signed int.
64

    
65
2009-06-19 - r19222 - lavc 52.32.0 - AVSubtitle.pts
66
  Added a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle's packet
67
  PTS in AV_TIME_BASE. Some subtitle de-/encoders (e.g. XSUB) will
68
  not work right without this.
69

    
70
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
71
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped for the next
72
  major version. Use AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY instead.
73

    
74
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
75
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
76
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
77
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
78
  the implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
79
  When the lock manager is registered FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
80
  correct also in a multi-threaded application.
81

    
82
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet
83
  av_free_packet() is no longer an inline function. It is now exported.
84

    
85
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree
86
  Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
87
  (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).
88

    
89
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
90
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
91
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
92
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
93
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
94

    
95
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space
96
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
97

    
98
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
99
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
100
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
101

    
102
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
103
  Make the pixel formats: PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
104
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, defined as enum
105
  PixelFormat values, and viceversa make PIX_FMT_RGB32,
106
  PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32, PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 defined as macros.
107
  Also make avcodec_get_pix_fmt() recognize the "rgb32" and "bgr32"
108
  aliases.
109
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
110
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
111

    
112
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
113
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
114
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
115
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
116

    
117
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
118
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
119
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
120
  instead.
121

    
122
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
123
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
124
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
125
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
126
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
127
  were changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
128
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
129
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
130

    
131
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
132
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
133
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
134
  includes the following structure fields:
135
    - AVFormatContext.title
136
    - AVFormatContext.author
137
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
138
    - AVFormatContext.comment
139
    - AVFormatContext.album
140
    - AVFormatContext.year
141
    - AVFormatContext.track
142
    - AVFormatContext.genre
143
    - AVStream.language
144
    - AVStream.filename
145
    - AVProgram.provider_name
146
    - AVProgram.name
147
    - AVChapter.title
