We are finally preparing the new Kdenlive release that should be out in 10 days (on the 19th of November). Many people are wondering what happened with our successful fundraising, so here is a first update: as it was clearly stated, the fundraising's goal was to clean up Kdenlive's base code.

The last months were spent fixing important bugs that were discovered in Kdenlive 0.9.2 and also new issues that happened due to recent fixes in the video framework (MLT) that we use.
