0.98 Release “Getting there”

As of December 5th, 2016, the Pitivi team is proud to announce the eighth beta release of Pitivi toward the 1.0 version.

This is considered a beta release since the “big picture” remains “making Pitivi stable”. Note that while we use the word “beta” here, this is the latest “stable” release, and is the one we recommend over all previous ones.

Pitivi works well for us and we make nice movies with it. Try it out, have fun and report detailed bugs for issues you may encounter!

Changes and completed tasks

35 tasks have been closed. See the list of reported tasks that have been resolved in 0.98.

Since the 0.97 release, 175 commits were made in Pitivi, fixing many bugs.

We switched our official Flatpak build to use Gtk 3.22 and fixed the Gtk warnings which showed up for good reasons. As a result, the timeline code has been greatly improved.

Thanks to Jakub Brindza, our GSoC student this summer, it is now possible to customize the keyboard shortcuts.

Known issues

One nasty bug you might hit is the timeline freezing when you work with file formats which are not officially supported. To workaround it you have to allow the app to create optimized media proxy files when importing the files, and wait for the transcoding to finish before adding them to the timeline. This issue is tracked in T7626.

You can see what's left for 1.0 in the list of currently known issues.
