Sam's new icons are now in and the default (if you want the originals,
change in Settings->Preferences Appearance tab at the top left and this
will restart your session).  There seem to be more distros and versions
accumulating and there may be some renaming that might affect you, so look
around at:


Warning: there were a lot of feedback/requests/fixes/rework done so just be
aware that problems may still exist.  Also, not all feedback has been
addressed.  The updated Features5.pdf is out there too, along with the
releasenotes.pdf (a text version that may be less readable is below.

5.1  Release Notes for changes from 07/01/2017 to 07/31/2017 for these

1. New plugin icons (picons) are now a choice in Settings->Preferences
→Appearance and will be saved across sessions.  Credit: Creative Common By
https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/  (Sam).  This currently
includes the Video and Audio icons, the transition icons, and a replacement
for the single ffmpeg audio/video and ladspa icons.  Cinfinity will be the
initial and fallback default so if you want to switch to the original or
Akirad versions, change it in Settings/Preferences/Appearance.
2. Caution: There was a lot of general code cleanup and rework which was
tested but could still have some issues so be sure to report problems.
3. Additional capability has been added to Copy and Paste clips or a list
of files within and across multiple instances of Cinelerra.   In the
Resources/asset window, popups have some modifications to support new
capability such as “Copy/Paste file list” for Media, “Copy” & “Delete” for
Clips, and  “Delete” & “Go to” for Labels.
4. The Perspective plugin has had implementation changes made for cubic
edges, plus there are now 4 choices for  methodology, with Cubic looking
the smoothest.  There is a zoom bar, red outline boundary box, along with
additional view and translate capabilities.  Also, the Reset button has
been moved so that longer words in language translations are not cutoff
(Sam feedback).  See Features5.
5.  A right click on a plugin in the Resources window has a new Info choice
that will provide a short description of the plugin (currently all video
and audio plugins & transitions are available.  This uses contributed work
from WPfilmmaker for the ffmpeg audio and video plugins he had outlined in
Features5.pdf (Peter suggestion).
6. LADSPA library upgrade to v0.4.17 which contains bug fixes (thanks to
7. Added Leap 42.3 to the build machine so will be building a package for
that also (Terje noted).
8. Usability Improvements:
    In the Resources Window, the “right click” for Info now will replace
the previous “Asset Info” window if one is already up.  This applies to
Media and Clips (Peter suggestion).
    FF tooltip has been reworded to make the meaning clearer for users
(Frederic suggested).  The Shell Cmds button also has a default “Setting
Shell Commands” for easy access to usage (Frederic recommended
    The “Rendering took” time in the lower left corner of the main track
canvas is now left up until certain status changes or until a File→Load
(Frederic pointed out the need for this).
    Removed Reel Name, Reel Number, Time Code Start from Asset Info in
Resources & Preferences.
    A few environment variables were set up for easier usage, such as
CIN_BROWSER.  See Features5.
    OpenEXR is now configurable in the “configure” script; use with or
without EXR.
    A “status update” has been added to the statusbar message area for the
load status.
    Stretchable scrollbars have been added.
    More Russian translations available (credit to Igor for contribution).
    Picon directory strategy has been modified to accommodate new cinfinity
and other picons.  In doing so, it is now possible to create your own picon
directory in the same path as picon_cinfinity, etc. with your own versions
of icons and this can be selected in Settings->Preferences->Appearance.
    The Settings→Preferences Interface tab was too long in the Y direction
such that users with a small laptop screen could not make changes and then
click OK to have them take effect.  So that tab was split into 2 tabs of
Interface and Appearance with other minor rearrangements.
9. Bugs/Issues fixed:
    Background Rendering toggle on/off not taking effect has been fixed
(Sam reported).
    CriKey new plugin was crashing when used via the right click Show, but
now OK (WP noted).
    Gradient plugin dials are no longer disappearing when switch from/to
radial/linear (Sam reported).
    In Rendering/Video Wrench, prevent button 2 Tumbler updates when
disabled (Sam discovered).
    Affine routine has been reworked (used by Perspective, Motion51, and a
few other operations).
    Right Click in the Resources Window, now brings up the additional
option of “Display Icons” which had mistakenly been commented out (Peter
    A “race” condition in the Compositor for clipping has been alleviated
(Sam reported).
    Clips shown in the Resources window no longer wipe out some
information.  Also, the default comments have been modified so that now you
will see the name of the window clip came from, the date and timestamp and
length on 1 line and the EDL it came from if available (Peter reported).
    Background rendering Shift-G lock up/freeze is no longer a problem.
(Sam reported).
    Audio waveform disappears after clipping on the main timeline has been
fixed (noted by Sam).
    Missing “\” in bld_prepare.sh has been added back in (Frederic provided
    At least one instance of an empty title/comment of “Hello World” for a
clip has been replaced with information (Peter noted).  Could not find any
more reproducible cases.
    The Resources window “rebuild index” for certain non-ffmpeg files is
now getting done right.
    An embedded “CR – carriage return” in a file name or pasted in, is now
being handled.
    A SEGV situation in mwindow has been fixed; bug was undetected for a
long time.
    Label edit deadlock is no longer a problem (Frederic reported after #2
above changes).
    Info detail in Resource window SEGV has been fixed (Phyllis found).
    Problem with seek-less stream when using ffmpeg required a mod to
ffmpeg (Doug reported).
    At least 1 occurrence of mistaken clips/unwanted comments when in
“resources only” mode fixed.
    A problem with Chinese characters in the Titler led to discovery of a
bug whereby different algorithms were being used for the text in 2
different places.  This has been fixed and rework of the text drawing was
done (WP reported).
    Compressor audio plugin no longer crashes when attempting to set the
Point field (Phyllis found).
    Error message in status bar only flashed on the screen and not long
enough to read is correct now.
    Video Transitions were not correct when using OpenGL – it flashed black
and was not smooth.
    Added ShapeWipe transition choice of Spiral.
