0.95 Release "Enfant suisse"
The Pitivi team is proud to announce the fifth beta release of Pitivi toward the 1.0 version, This is mostly a incremental bugfixing release, so make sure to see the 0.91, 0.92, 0.93 and 0.94 release notes to get the full picture.

This is considered a beta release. The focus remains on making Pitivi stable, that's why the next release will bring proxy editing.

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
82 tasks have been closed, See the list of reported tasks that have been resolved in 0.95.

Since the 0.94 release, 392 commits were made in Pitivi, fixing many bugs and implementing the following features:

The timeline has been rewritten
The timeline has been rewritten using plain GTK+. This means that we do not depend on the Clutter library anymore; it was causing many problems for our use cases.

The clip transformation box has been reimplemented
The transformation tool was previously dropped when Pitivi was ported to the GStreamer Editing Services. It has now been reimplemented. While its current state means that it lost a few features compared to its previous incarnation, it should be more robust and much simpler to maintain.

New video sink
The glimagesink (video rendering widget) was replaced by the new gtk(gl)sink, which integrates more cleanly inside the application and avoids various bugs we used to encounter while embedding the old sink into Gtk.

Direct importing to the timeline
It is now possible to import external files directly into the timeline. Just drag & drop from your favorite file manager to create a clip on the timeline.

Integration with GstValidate
With this new release, we serialize all the operations done by the user as GstValidateScenarios (more details here), allowing us to reproduce bugs much more easily. See the bug reporting page for details on how to create scenario files for testing.

Fits small screens again
We heard 1024x768 is still a thing, so we added some tricks to adapt the UI when running on small screens.

Looks superb! As GStreamer has been ported to Windows, and Python is cross-platform, can we expect a Windows version soon perhaps? Keep up the cool work!
