  • 0.7.1
    OBS 0.7.1
    * You can now use blank RTMP stream keys
    * Changed volume meter to use decibels
    * Added scaling filters (bicubic, lanczos)
    * Added advanced audio properties dialog box (in the Edit menu), with features
      such as force mono, volume past 100%, and the ability to set the audio sync
      offset for each audio source
    * Fixed a bug where a source's audio would not unmute when switching to a scene
      where that same audio source was in use
    * Fixed possible FLV corruption bug that could happen under certain
    * Fixed a potential crash that could happen when either recording or streaming
      was stopped
    * Optimized frame output pipeline to ensure that no frames are unintentionally
      duplicated due to thread scheduling, improved the accuracy of frame timing,
      and improved the handling under higher CPU usage (and high-CPU presets)
    * Fixed a few user interface flaws with the properties window where the
      properties section would get too big of would expand past its limits
    * Fixed a user interface flaw with the volume mixer where the volume controls
      would expand to the right if the name was too long, making the volume sliders
      difficult to use
    * Optimize frame handling of asynchronous video sources (such as video from
      capture devices), reducing CPU usage from what it was
    * Projects now save whenever streaming/recording is started, and also at every
      20 second interval
    * Fixed a UI bug where double-clicking with buttons other than the left button
      would still open up the properties of sources in the source list
    * Added new rewritten version of the game capture plugin, with improved
      performance and new features such as:
        - multi-adapter compatibility options (SLI/laptop)
        - option for pre-capture scaling (mostly for multi-adapter mode)
        - option for framerate limiting (also mostly for multi-adapter mode)
        - option to capture third-party overlays such as steam
        - option to automatically detect and capture any fullscreen window rather
          than have to select the window manually each time
        - safer hooking that's less prone to crashes in the target process, and
          that's safe to use with other hooks
    * Added fast windows 8+ monitor capture support
    * Added a 'Buffering' option to device capture that allows the user to select
      whether the signal should be buffered/timed or played right away
    * Added an Activate/Deactivate button to device capture instead of it always
      being on
    * Fixed an issue where the HD-PVR Rocket would not start up or shut down
    * Allow capturing of different X servers
    * Improved multi-monitor support
    * Fixed possible crash when loading fonts for the text plugin

    * Made it so instead of renaming, double-clicking a source now opens the properties (Palana)
    * Fixed an issue where syphon would be partially transparent, and added an option to enable transparency if desired (Palana)
    * Fixed 'remove' context shortcut on OSX (Palana)
    * Made various improvements to how syphon captures, and it will now remember and capture the last program it was set to capture (Palana)
    * Added a "Use system timing" option to v4l2 plugin that can optionally fix some frame timing problems that can occur with certain linux drivers (Jim)
    * Fixed an issue where v4l2 plugin frames could buffer more than intended when switching devices, causing the output to appear more and more delayed (leonhard)
    * Made it so that the v4l2 plugin detects device disconnection/reconnection, and will reconnect the device and update properties accordingly when that occurs (leonhard)
