23 Change the interface of avfilter_make_format_list() from
24 avfilter_make_format_list(int n, ...) to
25 avfilter_make_format_list(enum PixelFormat *pix_fmts).

272009-10-18 - r20272 - lavfi 1.0.0 - avfilter_get_video_buffer()
28 Make avfilter_get_video_buffer() recursive and add the w and h
29 parameters to it.

372009-06-19 - r19222 - lavc 52.32.0 - AVSubtitle.pts
38 Added a pts field to AVSubtitle which gives the subtitle's packet
39 PTS in AV_TIME_BASE. Some subtitle de-/encoders (e.g. XSUB) will
40 not work right without this.

RD
422009-06-03 - r19078 - lavc 52.30.2 - AV_PKT_FLAG_KEY

462009-06-01 - r19025 - lavc 52.30.0 - av_lockmgr_register()
47 av_lockmgr_register() can be used to register a callback function
48 that lavc (and in the future, libraries that depend on lavc) can use
49 to implement mutexes. The application should provide a callback function
50 the implements the AV_LOCK_* operations described in avcodec.h.
51 When the lock manager is registered FFmpeg is guaranteed to behave
52 correct also in a multi-threaded application.

572009-04-11 - r18431 - lavc 52.25.0 - deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree
58 Please use NULL instead. This has been supported since r16506
59 (lavf > 52.23.1, lavc > 52.10.0).

612009-04-07 - r18351 - lavc 52.23.0 - avcodec_decode_video/audio/subtitle
62 The old decoding functions are deprecated, all new code should use the
63 new functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio3() and
64 avcodec_decode_subtitle2(). These new functions take an AVPacket *pkt
65 argument instead of a const uint8_t *buf / int buf_size pair.

742009-03-22 - r18163 - lavu 50.2.0 - RGB32 pixel formats
75 Make the pixel formats: PIX_FMT_ARGB, PIX_FMT_RGBA, PIX_FMT_ABGR,
76 PIX_FMT_BGRA, which were defined as macros, defined as enum
77 PixelFormat values, and viceversa make PIX_FMT_RGB32,
78 PIX_FMT_RGB32_1, PIX_FMT_BGR32, PIX_FMT_BGR32_1 defined as macros.
79 Also make avcodec_get_pix_fmt() recognize the "rgb32" and "bgr32"
80 aliases.
f3370e14 81 Re-sort the enum PixelFormat list accordingly.

82 This change breaks API/ABI backward compatibility.

842009-03-22 - r18133 - lavu 50.1.0 - PIX_FMT_RGB5X5 endian variants
85 Add the enum PixelFormat values:
86 PIX_FMT_RGB565BE, PIX_FMT_RGB565LE, PIX_FMT_RGB555BE, PIX_FMT_RGB555LE,
87 PIX_FMT_BGR565BE, PIX_FMT_BGR565LE, PIX_FMT_BGR555BE, PIX_FMT_BGR555LE.

90 The Mersenne Twister PRNG implemented through the av_random* functions
91 was removed. Use the lagged Fibonacci PRNG through the av_lfg* functions
92 instead.

942009-03-08 - r17869 - lavu 50.0.0 - AVFifoBuffer
95 av_fifo_init, av_fifo_read, av_fifo_write and av_fifo_realloc were dropped
96 and replaced by av_fifo_alloc, av_fifo_generic_read, av_fifo_generic_write
97 and av_fifo_realloc2.
98 In addition, the order of the function arguments of av_fifo_generic_read
99 were changed to match av_fifo_generic_write.
100 The AVFifoBuffer/struct AVFifoBuffer may only be used in an opaque way by
101 applications, they may not use sizeof() or directly access members.
