FFmpeg 0.5 Is Released

March 10th, 2009 by Multimedia Mike

If you’re reading this, the multimedia.cx DNS change has propagated, yet again, for another hosting service. But that’s a venomous tale for another blog post. FFmpeg v0.5 hit the web yesterday, right about the time that my new hosting service started having serious problems. Thus, I was unable to observe the occasion at the time.

But now I’m able to let it sink in a bit more… wow. I can’t even remember the last time we had a release and to be honest, I don’t really want to look it up because it’s a little embarrassing to think about. Thanks to all my co-devs who made the release what it is. But thanks especially to Diego Biurrun who stuck his neck out and pushed hard for this release effort starting a little over a month ago. Somehow, we got the release out.

Rest assured, we are taking notes this time around in order to make the process easier next time around. This is the dawn of a new era of open source multimedia (here’s hoping, anyway).

    “If you are looking for a formal release, stop now, there are none. Maybe we will have some in the future, but don’t hold your breath.” :)

    I guess we’ll have to ask Google to strike that legacy bug from their cache.
