Pitivi 0.96 has been released as the first major update to this GNOME-aligned open-source video editor since the v0.95 release last November.

The huge addition to Pitivi 0.96 is proxy editing support. Proxy editing comes down to interacting with lower-quality video clips to allow for a more responsive user experience while when it comes to rendering the final cut that it automatically switches over to using the original, full-quality media content. Proxy editing will improve performance particularly for lower-end systems, improve the stability of this non-linear video editor, and other benefits.

In addition to proxy editing, Pitivi 0.96 also has timeline changes, transformation box, setting changes, user interface improvements, the start of allowing custom keyboard shortcuts, and support for Flatpak packages.

More details on the Pitivi 0.96 video editor release can be found via the project's blog.
