I think I will first try to make a 0.6 release of Kdenlive that is still based
on KDE3.

The next (0.7) Kdenlive version will be based on KDE4 but won't have many new
features. I am currently working on it and the main concern is to improve the
UI to make it nicer and include some nice ideas like dragging a clip's corner
to crossfade and that kind of small details that are nice to have. But the
KDE4 version means rewriting a lot of code, so the first release will most
likely not have a lot of new features.

Once the porting will be done, the titler could easily be improved and include
options like object transparencies. Porting the MLT QImage producer to QT4
should also allow for new effects like cropping, rotation, etc.

Currently the Kdenlive/MLT interface is a really small piece of code, so it
shouldn't be too hard to update it, and Kdenlive already works with timecode
instead of frames in most of its parts.

Yes, I think it would be good to release a last KDE3 based Kdenlive that
includes as most fixes as possible. I am ok to work on it so that we could
release a KDE3 based Kdenlive and a new MLT together.

Excellent news. I will happily kill kdenlive_renderer in favor of inigo!

I?am currently not very present on mailing lists and forums, but it's mainly
because I spend my time on the KDE4 version, wich is progressing nicely, so I
am very excited to hear that you are making progress on MLT!
