Version history / Release notes / Changelog


5.0.5 is a patch release mainly for AppImage users but also some minor fixes for Windows and is available via usual PPA and Fedora/openSUSE channels. macOS users remain on 5.0.0 until the next version 5.5.0 release which is currently being developed.
Users who experienced problems with 5.0.0 are urged to try this new release.

5.0.5 changelog
patch release mainly for users of the AppImage binary which has
been overhauled and tested on Ubuntu Trusty, Vivid + KDE Neon.
Also contains latest nightly binary of FFmpeg so SmartCut will
work properly (FFmpeg needs to be fairly recent for proper HEVC
and MPEG-4 Part 2 formats to work in SmartCut mode)

fixed timeline slider tooltip displaying time position to only appear
when mouse is over the slider widget. this stops it from constantly
appearing whenever media position changes. No longer displays
constantly during playback unless mouse hovers above timeline.

Removal of Python 3 OpenGL module to allow app to work on
Linux distros containing older 3.0.1 versions of the module. The
dependency on python3-opengl has now been removed and was only
necessary for Ubuntu users on Vivid due to a broken PyQt5 OpenGL
implementation in the core PyOpenGL package. Vivid is no longer
a supported distro version so it should be okay to omit on a
permanent basis.

I abandoned older version, but this version works now perfectly on my W7 64-bit. But not yet fit for wtv files as hoped, a welcome feature for later version if possible.
