    Edward, translators would appreciate so much if you send a notice on gnome-i18n before the release…

    Awesome stuff everyone. I’ll post this on the user group mail list.

    Nice, but.. Are you ever gonna add transition effects or similar?

    Is the fact that in the screenshot the “Audio:” label next to the timeline is not horizontally lined up with the Audio waveforms worth reporting as a bug?

    Is there perhaps an Ubuntu PPA for this?

    Why is the audio track label “Audio:” next to the second video track? Shouldn’t it move automatically?

    @claude, sorry for that, we were in a rush to get out at least one version for Lucid. And since most languages have 99 or 100% translated messages, I skipped it this time. Promised, I’ll send the pre-release mails to gnome-i18n next time.

    @Leolas, yes, we have a branch with transitions, but due to lack of testing and wanting to be certain Lucid would have at least a version of PiTiVi with the past 6 months of bugfixes/improvements we made this release. If all goes well we should be able to release another version of PiTiVi within the next 2 weeks with transitions.

    @Greg, asdfasdf: whoops, indeed :( Can you please file a bug ?

    @Joseph, We’ll update the gstreamer-developers PPA as soon as possible.

    Congrats on the release!
    I put together a small video with some pics and audio some time ago and Pitivi did a great job!

    Congrats. What’s the status on builds for Windows?

  14. Posted March 12, 2010 at 10:40 am | Permalink

    @tin2tin: We’re going to merge Andoni’s patches for windows support before 0.13.5

    Also, the gstreamer-developers PPA now has 0.13.4 with dependencies available for karmik : https://launchpad.net/~gstreamer-developers/+archive/ppa

    Excellent work. I love the high quality improvements you make to this. I am already updated and will play with this on Saturday.

    Please keep up the great work!!

    this is excellent. The video and audio playback is smooth on my ubuntu 9.10, even with multiple tracks transitioning together. Much appreciated. As I don’t tend to use many effects, this is a stable video editor that I will put alot of use into, which will allow me to complete my video projects with ease on linux. Finaly, F yess. Thanks to everyone involved!
