Free and open-source video cutting and joining software, Vidcutter 5.0.5, was released a few hours ago.

The new release is mainly for users of the AppImage binary which has been overhauled and tested on Ubuntu 14.04, 15.04 + KDE Neon.

Other changes include:

  • AppImage contains latest nightly binary of FFmpeg so SmartCut will work properly.
  • fixed timeline slider tooltip displaying issue.
  • Removal of Python 3 OpenGL module to allow app to work on Linux distros containing older 3.0.1 versions of the module.
