We are pleased to announce that our next major release, Libav 10 "Eks", has been branched from git master and we are simultaneously releasing the first beta preview for that branch. If all goes well, the final release should follow shortly, after some polishing.
Please consult the release notes for the summary of the most important features of this release. Downstream projects may be interested in the migration guide which gives some pointers for adapting to the new APIs.
We are happy to update two release branches: Today, we provide you with both, Libav 9.11 and Libav 0.8.10, in order to address a number of critical functional and security issues that we have been made aware of.
For further details on the backported changes, please refer to our verbose Changelog files:
Distributors and system integrators are encouraged to update and share their patches against our release branches.
