Tool Description Type Rating Comment

Flowblade Movie Editor is a multitrack non-linear video editor for Linux released under GPL 3 license. Flowblade is designed to provide a fast, precise and as-simple-as-possible editing experience. Flowblade employs film style editing paradigm in which clips are usually automatically placed tightly after the previous clip - or between two existing clips - when they are inserted on the timeline. Edits are fine tuned by trimming in and out points of clips, or by cutting and deleting parts of clips. Film style editing is faster for creating programs with mostly straight cuts and audio splits, but may be slower when programs contain complex composites unless correct work flow is followed. Flowblade provides powerful tools to mix and filter video and audio.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
Flowblade 1.2
Date: September 9, 2015

Flowblade 1.2 is the ninth release of Flowblade.

Flowblade has now been ported to GTK3.

The process was not as straight forward as one might think but eventually everything worked out. There always seemed to be just one more little change in API that required all instances to be fixed by hand. Luckily there was a conversion script available that did most of the grunt work to get things going.
We did get something in return. A small but percipteble responsiveness improvement was gained probably because GTK3 provides a Cairo widget for creating custom widgets that is now used instead of the project specific Cairo widget that was used before. GTK3 also seems to render widgets a bit crispier.
I really hope that major API breaking version jumps for widget toolkits are avoided as much as possible. Projects with large interface and small man power can really suffer here.
There were some other major developments during the cycle too:

All rendering was moved out of process as the in-process rendering was found to not work correctly in same cases.
Dark theme support was improved. It is now possible to use a dark theme just by setting a preference if the GTK3 theme used has a dark variant available.
Small screen support has been upgraded. The application now works better on 768px height screens.
There has also been more contributors then ever, so the move to Github seems to have a positive effect on the project visibility and participation.

After bug fix release 1.0 and GTK3 port release 1.2, the next cycle will be about getting back on track with steady improvement in features and stabilization.

The 1.4 will also be the first "real" release of the 1.x series. In the 1.x series all changes to project format, editing paradigm and fundamental technical structure are avoided in favor of creating a solid application that reaches its full potential within the chosen tech/design path. The 1.x series will probably last for about two years, after which further fundamental change will be considered.

Other bug fixes and enhancements

Add preference to always use English on a localized OS
Make audio sample rate user selectable for rendering
Drop support for creating new 'Affine' compositors. 'Affine' didn't work properly.
Make color clips use hidden pngs instead of mlt producer to fix compositing crashes.
Fix MPEG - 4 / .mp4 rendering to always respect source image shape
Fix transform filters by removing non-persitant scaling properties
Fix clip audio sample frequency and channels info display
Use translations at /usr/share/locale if available
Fix preset encodings batch rendering
Make image sequence open dialog use the last opened media directory
Make out-of-process tools write log files
