Gource 0.47 has been released.
There are a few new command line options around filtering and displaying files, some new display settings and some fixes.
The Windows build is now 64-bit. Also we've enabled STDOUT with the --output-stream option on Windows so you can pipe Gource directly into ffmpeg like on Linux.
Changes since 0.44:
Gource 0.44 is a minor release to fix a build error with newer versions of GCC.
Changes since 0.43:
Gource 0.43 has been released to fix a minor build issue with Boost on multi-arch Linux systems.
There are no other changes so if you're not affected by this you can stick with 0.42.
Changes since 0.42:
Changes since 0.41:
Gource 0.41 has been released.
You can now specify a date range directly with --start-date and --stop-date (using 'YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss' ISO format).
Gource now uses SDL 2.0 when available, providing much better multi-monitor support.
Changes since 0.40:
Downloads are now hosted on Github as Google Code no longer accepts adding new downloads:
If you package Gource for a distro, please update the dependencies to use SDL 2 instead of SDL 1.2.
