GNOME --
Pitivi 0.97 was released today as the newest development release of this open-source non-linear video editing software followed quickly by a 0.97.1 point release just for a fix to show the correct version string.

The official changes for the Pitivi 0.97 release just mention:
* The rendering dialog has been reworked to clearly state what encoders and muxer are officially supported (and the GES integration tests have been added to check those).

* The build system has been ported to Meson and gst-transcoder is now a subproject.

* Usual bug fixes.
The details via this commit. Other recent improvements to Pitivi that landed in recent development releases include UI improvements, rewriting more code purely in GTK+, making greater use of the GStreamer Editing Services, direct importing to the timeline, Python 3 porting, and a whole lot more. Hopefully it won't be too much longer until Pitivi 1.0. More details at Pitivi.org.
