  Introduce the avfilter_next() function.
343

    
344
2009-11-25 - r20605 - lavfi 1.9.0 - avfilter_register()
345
  Change the signature of avfilter_register() to make it return an
346
  int. This is required since now the registration operation may fail.
347

    
348
2009-11-25 - r20603 - lavu 50.5.0 - pixdesc.h API
349
  Make the pixdesc.h API public.
350

    
351
2009-10-27 - r20385 - lavfi 1.5.0 - AVFilter.next
352
  Add a next field to AVFilter, this is used for simplifying the
353
  registration and management of the registered filters.
354

    
355
2009-10-23 - r20356 - lavfi 1.4.1 - AVFilter.description
356
  Add a description field to AVFilter.
357

    
358
2009-10-19 - r20302 - lavfi 1.3.0 - avfilter_make_format_list()
359
  Change the interface of avfilter_make_format_list() from
360
  avfilter_make_format_list(int n, ...) to
361
  avfilter_make_format_list(enum PixelFormat *pix_fmts).
362

    
363
2009-10-18 - r20272 - lavfi 1.0.0 - avfilter_get_video_buffer()
364
  Make avfilter_get_video_buffer() recursive and add the w and h
365
  parameters to it.
366

    
367
2009-10-07 - r20189 - lavfi 0.5.1 - AVFilterPic
368
  Add w and h fields to AVFilterPic.
369

    
370
2009-06-22 - r19250 - lavf 52.34.1 - AVFormatContext.packet_size
371
  This is now an unsigned int instead of a signed int.
372

    
373
2009-06-19 - r19222 - lavc 52.32.0 - AVSubtitle.pts
374
  Add a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle packet pts
375
  in AV_TIME_BASE. Some subtitle de-/encoders (e.g. XSUB) will
376
  not work right without this.
377

    
378
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
379
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped at the next
380
  major version. Use AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY instead.
381

    
382
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
383
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
384
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
385
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
386
  that implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
387
  When the lock manager is registered, FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
388
  correctly in a multi-threaded application.
389

    
390
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet()
391
  av_free_packet() is no longer an inline function. It is now exported.
392

    
393
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree()
394
  Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
395
  (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).
396

    
397
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
398
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
399
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
400
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
401
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
402

    
403
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space()
404
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
405

    
406
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
407
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
408
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
409

    
410
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
411
  Convert the pixel formats PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
412
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, into enum PixelFormat values.
413
  Conversely PIX_FMT_RGB32, PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32 and
414
  PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 are now macros.
415
  avcodec_get_pix_fmt() now recognizes the "rgb32" and "bgr32" aliases.
416
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
417
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
418

    
419
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
420
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
421
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
422
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
423

    
424
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
425
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
426
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
427
  instead.
428

    
429
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
430
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
431
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
432
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
433
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
434
  was changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
435
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
436
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
437

    
438
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
439
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
440
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
441
  includes the following structure fields:
442
    - AVFormatContext.title
443
    - AVFormatContext.author
444
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
445
    - AVFormatContext.comment
446
    - AVFormatContext.album
447
    - AVFormatContext.year
448
    - AVFormatContext.track
449
    - AVFormatContext.genre
450
    - AVStream.language
451
    - AVStream.filename
452
    - AVProgram.provider_name
453
    - AVProgram.name
454
    - AVChapter.title
