How To Install Kdenlive 15.04 On Fedora 21 And Fedora 20 Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Kdenlive is an open-source video editor, running on both Linux and FreeBSD and using FFmpeg, MLT video framework and Frei0r effects. It can be used for both basic video editing or semi-profesional work.

The latest version available is Kdenlive 15.04, which has been recently released, becoming part of the KDE project. This has several implications:
  • We fully benefit from KDE’s infrastructure, which means less worries for the developpers.
  • We stick to KDE Applications release schedule, which means one bugfix release every month, one feature improved version every 4 months. That’s a big change from the previous random release every year or so. This is possible because the KDE team takes care of the release, not our small dev team, so a big thank you to KDE.
  • We now use KDE’s bugtacker at https://bugs.kde.org.
  • We benefit from KDE’s build servers and team, which means that we might in the future have Mac OS and
  • We can now be part of the Google Summer Of Code.
  • We have adopted the KDE Applications numbering scheme. From now on, Kdenlive versions will be numbered with Year.Month.Bugfix. That explains the 15.04.0 version.
  • Every KDE contributor can help us improve Kdenlive.
