Merge "Update CHANGELOG for Cayuga release" into cayuga

parents f3538f2b ea8d436f
2011-08-02 v0.9.7 "Cayuga"
Our third named release, focused on a faster, higher quality, encoder.
- Upgrading:
This release is backwards compatible with Aylesbury (v0.9.5) and
Bali (v0.9.6). Users of older releases should refer to the Upgrading
notes in this document for that release.
- Enhancements:
Stereo 3D format support for vpxenc
Runtime detection of available processor cores.
Allow specifying --end-usage by enum name
vpxdec: test for frame corruption
vpxenc: add quantizer histogram display
vpxenc: add rate histogram display
Set VPX_FRAME_IS_DROPPABLE
update configure for ios sdk 4.3
Avoid text relocations in ARM vp8 decoder
Generate a vpx.pc file for pkg-config.
New ways of passing encoded data between encoder and decoder.
- Speed:
This release includes across-the-board speed improvements to the
encoder. On x86, these measure at approximately 11.5% in Best mode,
21.5% in Good mode (speed 0), and 22.5% in Realtime mode (speed 6).
On ARM Cortex A9 with Neon extensions, real-time encoding of video
telephony content is 35% faster than Bali on single core and 48%
faster on multi-core. On the NVidia Tegra2 platform, real time
encoding is 40% faster than Bali.
Decoder speed was not a priority for this release, but improved
approximately 8.4% on x86.
Reduce motion vector search on alt-ref frame.
Encoder loopfilter running in its own thread
Reworked loopfilter to precalculate more parameters
SSE2/SSSE3 optimizations for build_predictors_mbuv{,_s}().
Make hor UV predict ~2x faster (73 vs 132 cycles) using SSSE3.
Removed redundant checks
Reduced structure sizes
utilize preload in ARMv6 MC/LPF/Copy routines
ARM optimized quantization, dfct, variance, subtract
Increase chrow row alignment to 16 bytes.
disable trellis optimization for first pass
Write SSSE3 sub-pixel filter function
Improve SSE2 half-pixel filter funtions
Add vp8_sub_pixel_variance16x8_ssse3 function
Reduce unnecessary distortion computation
Use diamond search to replace full search
Preload reference area in sub-pixel motion search (real-time mode)
- Quality:
This release focused primarily on one-pass use cases, including
video conferencing. Low latency data rate control was significantly
improved, improving streamability over bandwidth constrained links.
Added support for error concealment, allowing frames to maintain
visual quality in the presence of substantial packet loss.
Add rc_max_intra_bitrate_pct control
Limit size of initial keyframe in one-pass.
Improve framerate adaptation
Improved 1-pass CBR rate control
Improved KF insertion after fades to still.
Improved key frame detection.
Improved activity masking (lower PSNR impact for same SSIM boost)
Improved interaction between GF and ARFs
Adding error-concealment to the decoder.
Adding support for independent partitions
Adjusted rate-distortion constants
- Bug Fixes:
Removed firstpass motion map
Fix parallel make install
Fix multithreaded encoding for 1 MB wide frame
Fixed iwalsh_neon build problems with RVDS4.1
Fix semaphore emulation, spin-wait intrinsics on Windows
Fix build with xcode4 and simplify GLOBAL.
Mark ARM asm objects as allowing a non-executable stack.
Fix vpxenc encoding incorrect webm file header on big endian
2011-03-07 v0.9.6 "Bali"
Our second named release, focused on a faster, higher quality, encoder.
