It was almost exactly one year to the day that FFmpeg 0.5 was released
after this major free software project had not encountered a new release in quite a while. Yesterday a new FFmpeg release also made it out the door and it's FFmpeg 0.5.1. The 0.5.1 release, however, doesn't have anything too exciting in store for it beyond clearing up some bugs, security problems, licensing issues, and packaging problems. There are not any new codecs (like the work we talked about just this week
), but all of that is being held off until FFmpeg 0.6.
Details on the FFMpeg 0.5.1 release can be found at FFmpeg.org
. As of right now there is no planned release schedule for FFmpeg 0.6.
