    Version 17.09 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

    While this version contains the usual round-up of fixes and translation updates, it also contains some technology updates:

    • Renewed the code signing certificate for the Windows installer and executable.
    • Updated SDL to v2.0
    • Updated FFmpeg to v3.2
    • Updated x264, x265, and vp8/9 to the latest stable versions.

    In addition, primarily for school/institution installations, we added the ability to turn off the welcome message that suggests to check for an upgrade. This works by either running the shotcut executable with the “–noupgrade” command line option. Or, one can add the option “noupgrade” to the config file or registry, under the General section with the value “true”. This option also hides the Help > Upgrade… menu item.
