December 14, 2010

Bino 0.7 is released!
There are many changes in this release. The video output was rewritten for improved quality, and now requires OpenGL 2.1 + framebuffer objects. Bino can now recognize the input format based on file name conventions (see the man page). There is a new 3D Equalizer output mode. A benchmark mode was added. Multithreaded video decoding is enabled by default on multi-core systems. And much more...
Note that sRGB textures are currently broken with some free OpenGL drivers, e.g. Mesa/r600. See freedesktop.org bug 32323. If your video is displayed too bright, you can set the environment variable SRGB_TEXTURES_ARE_BROKEN to enable a temporary workaround.

(Version 0.4 had a few annoying bugs and was quickly replaced with 0.5.)
