98

    
99
2009-10-18 - r20272 - lavfi 1.0.0 - avfilter_get_video_buffer()

103
2009-10-07 - r20189 - lavfi 0.5.1 - AVFilterPic
104
  Added w and h fields to AVFilterPic.
105

    
106
2009-06-22 - r19250 - lavf 52.34.1 - AVFormatContext.packet_size
107
  This is now an unsigned int instead of a signed int.
108

    
109
2009-06-19 - r19222 - lavc 52.32.0 - AVSubtitle.pts
110
  Added a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle's packet
111
  PTS in AV_TIME_BASE. Some subtitle de-/encoders (e.g. XSUB) will
112
  not work right without this.
113

    
114
2009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY
115
  PKT_FLAG_KEY has been deprecated and will be dropped for the next
116
  major version. Use AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY instead.
117

    
118
2009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
119
  av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
120
  that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
121
  to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
122
  the implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
123
  When the lock manager is registered FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
124
  correct also in a multi-threaded application.
125

    
126
2009-04-30 - r18719 - lavc 52.28.0 - av_free_packet
127
  av_free_packet() is no longer an inline function. It is now exported.
128

    
129
2009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree
130
  Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
131
  (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).
132

    
133
2009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
134
  The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
135
  new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
136
  avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
137
  argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.
138

    
139
2009-04-03 - r18321 - lavu 50.3.0 - av_fifo_space
140
  Introduce the av_fifo_space() function.
141

    
142
2009-04-02 - r18317 - lavc 52.23.0 - AVPacket
143
  Move AVPacket declaration from libavformat/avformat.h to
144
  libavcodec/avcodec.h.
145

    
146
2009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
147
  Make the pixel formats: PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
148
  PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, defined as enum
149
  PixelFormat values, and viceversa make PIX_FMT_RGB32,
150
  PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32, PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 defined as macros.
151
  Also make avcodec_get_pix_fmt() recognize the "rgb32" and "bgr32"
152
  aliases.
153
  Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.
154
  This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.
155

    
156
2009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
157
  Add the enum PixelFormat values:
158
  PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
159
  PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.
160

    
161
2009-03-21 - r18116 - lavu 50.0.0  - av_random*
162
  The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
163
  was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
164
  instead.
165

    
166
2009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0  - AVFifoBuffer
167
  av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
168
  and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
169
  and av_fifo_realloc2.
170
  In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
171
  were changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
172
  The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
173
  applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
174

    
175
2009-03-01 - r17682 - lavf 52.31.0 - Generic metadata API
176
  Introduce a new metadata API (see av_metadata_get() and friends).
177
  The old API is now deprecated and should not be used anymore. This especially
178
  includes the following structure fields:
179
    - AVFormatContext.title
180
    - AVFormatContext.author
181
    - AVFormatContext.copyright
182
    - AVFormatContext.comment
183
    - AVFormatContext.album
184
    - AVFormatContext.year
185
    - AVFormatContext.track
186
