Announcing the Novacut 12.01 components

Comment

Apologies that this is late. The release went out on time, but between the GStreamer 1.0 Hackfest and Linaro Connect, I haven't had time to write the release notes. I'll keep this brief as we're only about a week away from the 12.02 release now.

What's new

In Novacut proper, we reverted to the Python2 based renderer and now have it running as a DBus service (so we can render in the background even if the Novacut UI isn't open). We've been abusing the renderer with randomly generated test edits, and it's been quite reliable thus far. We didn't get our first cutting workflow all tied together for 12.01, but it should land in time 12.02.

We've also been doing a lot of UI prototyping, including this new type of storyboard view:

Special thanks

Get the bits

Packages are available in the Novacut Stable Releases PPA for Ubuntu Oneiric and Precise. And you can download the source code from each component's Launchpad project page. Whoa, seven components and counting:

Contribute to 12.02 and beyond!

We always release on the last Thursday of the month. The 12.02 components will be released on Thursday February 23, 2012, and development is already underway. To see what's in store for the next releases, checkout the 12.02 milestones:

That's all, folks!

Thanks to everyone who is helping make this dream a reality!

Cheers,
Jason Gerard DeRose
