    dav1d 0.7.0 'Frigatebird' the fast and lean AV1 decoder
    
    This is a major update of the dav1d, the fast and lean AV1 decoder,
    codename 'Frigatebird'.
    
    This release improves, once again, the speed on all platforms.
    
    A rewrite of refmv made an important speed boost on x86 while reducing
    RAM usage. It should improve the speed on every platform.
    
    A large number of assembly optimizations went for ARM64 for 8/10/12bit,
    a few for x86, notably for film grain and AVX-512 optimizations for CDEF.

    0.4.0 brings large improvements in speed on ARM64 (up to 25% speedup) and minor
    improvements on SSE and ARM. It also improves the RAM usage quite significantly,
    sometimes more than halving the RAM used.
  • 0.3.1
    dav1d 0.3.1 'Sailfish', the fast and small AV1 decoder
    
    This is a small bugfix release fixing a decoding issue on SSSE3 CPU,
    when frame-threading is activated.
    
    It also reduces the binary size and gives more optimizations for SSSE3
    and ARM CPUs.
