Changelog:

  • Bumping version number, and updating minimum libopenshot version
  • Updating translations and supporters files
  • Prevent transform scale from dividing by zero
  • Fixing incorrect content-type on exception reporting
  • Fixed another bug when deleting, undoing, and then moving a clip. Similar to the previous bug fix... but now I think I got it fixed. Closes #590.
  • Fixing crash on undo/redo when deleting a clip... and other related crashes.
  • Adding in minimum libopenshot detection, since many linux distros only seem to be updating the PyQt packages, rather than libopenshot (This results in many crashes)
  • Fixing title on SpaceWars 3D title
  • Fixing bug when right clicking on a unselected timeline item, it does not fully select it
  • Attempting to fix a strange race condition when frozen with cx_Freeze, where some users get ZipImportErrors when calling loadUi(). This prevents that function from running at the exact same time, and hopefully will prevent the error.
  • Fixing small bug when trying to lock tracks on an older project file
  • Compressing transitions images more to reduce installer size
  • Removing unused translation files at run-time. Original PO and MO files can be found on LaunchPad: https://translations.launchpad.net/openshot/2.0. These bloat the installers for no real reason.
  • Changing name of toolBar to "Toolbar".
  • Adding a missing documentation image.
  • Updating translation template, and tweaking style of "Update Available" button which only appears when an update is available.
  • Capture multi-digit version numbers - merging
