    'The best' is a big claim. Kdenlive probably considers themselves only part-way done after they've taken on the whole GPU-acceleration dealio in 0.97. They must be referring to at least 0.96 in all it's does really well with some bugs state?

    I'm sure it was 0.9.6 or something earlier and released that was tested! Version 0.9.7 is a develoment release and the Kdenlive website states you need to use the older version for any actual work as of now. No other Linux video editor can even remotely approach Kdenlive for full featured functionality. When the GPU work gets debugged, debottlenecked, and released, that will make Kdenlive a world-class video editor.

    As for multicore playback, the input files have to be in a format where ffmpeg supports multithreading, all cores are used with my AVCHD/H264 files.

    Default Sorry to necro bump but...

    Update on this matter, JBM left this on the mailing list:
    Hi,

    It seems a bit hard to organize an IRC meeting these days with all the year's
    end's events, so I propose to postpone it to January 2015.

    In the meantime I did sum up the current state & plans for Kdenlive for the
    next months on KDE's wiki:
    https://community.kde.org/Kdenlive/Development/KF5

    Basically, the Qt5/KF5 port is now done, and my plan is to work on the
    Kdenlive / MLT interactions by borrowing some ideas/code from Shotcut - Dan's
    work is always a great source of inspiration . This should allow us get rid
    of some unnecessarily complicated code (that is left from the time where
    Kdenlive communicated with MLT only through xml playlists), and is a good
    opportunity to do some cleanup and reorganization.

    I planned a 3 step refactoring, which should hopefully allow for a smooth
    transition and be manageable within a reasonable timeframe. I started work on
    the first step and will try to blog about the process. If any of the other
    developers have ideas or comments about this plan or other things, you are
    welcome.

    And for those who are wondering, I stopped working on Kdenlive for 1.5 year
    partly because of health issues but I have now fully recovered and the
    feedback from the community (thanks for the KDE award) and from Vincent
    greatly helped me to get back to Kdenlive!

    regards
    jb
    A big congratulations to JBM on his recovery!

    In related news it seems OpenShot has gone dark as the last written update on development was made in July and the last message that can be tracked to the developer on the matter is from mid October and it says "I am working on a big update for everyone! Sorry for the delay on news, it's been an action packed couple of months for OpenShot! Lots of updates coming soon! Thanks!"

    I sure am glad to hear Kdenlive didn't die on the vine. I love the software and count on it for creating the content i upload to the internet.

    I fail to see how that equates to OpenShot "going dark".

    The public hasn't actually seen any new code rise from the project in years, he did a fundraiser and promised a 2.0 in December 2013. There kept being delays and everyone was fine with that because the developer frequently released "updates" on progress. Well, his last update on progress was in July and there's been complete radio silence since October despite lots of questions being asked on his website and kickstarter page.
