congratulations for the future work.

in project, video editing for newbies, we try to improve 
support for multimedia software...

to improved video editing,

In ubuntu 8.04, we left kdenlive 0.7, it seems to be done in 8.10
in 8.04 and 8.10, last release of kino, dvgrab.
In 8.04, we need also a newer ffmpeg release to improve avchd support, 
h264 AVC encoding for hard disk, memory card, dvd HD camrecorder
in 8.04, we need lastest release of mpalyer/mencoder
In 8.04, we need the lastest openmovie editor

in 8.04 and in 8.10, we can't install and use jashaka 2.0 (maybe 3.0 has 
release) since dapper, no one has done the backport, large left for 
video special effects under GNU/Linux

in 8.04 and in 8.10, we left to smile (old name manslide) in deb package.

Many works, if you could do only one, the most important is ffmpeg 
lastest release for avchd support.

Thanks and bye,

Laurent from France.
