dav1d 0.2.1 'Antelope', the fast and small AV1 decoder This is the second release of dav1d, the fast and small AV1 decoder, codename 'Antelope'. It still supports all AV1 features and all bitdepths, from 8 to 12bits, and decodes more samples than before. While still being the fastest decoder on AVX-2 CPUs, dav1d is now also faster on ARM, ARM64 and SSSE3 CPUs in normal loads. 0.2.x is around 2x/2.5x faster on SSSE3 and achieves 1080p at 80fps on an iPhone XS 0.2.1 is a small bugfix release above 0.2.0 to fix build issues, and increase a bit the speed of SSSE3

build: use the project version as product version in the windows resource file And the API version as the file version.
dav1d is a new AV1 cross-platform decoder, open-source, and focused on speed and correctness.
The canonical repository URL for this repo is https://code.videolan.org/videolan/dav1d
This project is partially funded by the Alliance for Open Media/AOM.
The goal of this project is to provide a decoder for most platforms, and achieve the highest speed possible to overcome the temporary lack of AV1 hardware decoder.
It supports all features from AV1, including all subsampling and bit-depth parameters.
In the future, this project will host simple tools or simple wrappings (like, for example, an MFT transform).
dav1d is released under a very liberal license, a contrario from the other VideoLAN projects, so that it can be embedded anywhere, including non-open-source software; or even drivers, to allow the creation of hybrid decoders.
The reasoning behind this decision is the same as for libvorbis, see RMS on vorbis.
The plan is the folllowing:
Currently, we are looking for help from:
Our contributions guidelines are quite strict. We want to build a coherent codebase to simplify maintenance and achieve the highest possible speed.
Notably, the codebase is in pure C and asm.
We are on IRC, on the #dav1d channel on Freenode.
