    v5.229.2
    
    This bugfix release fixes a number of minor issues that have come up
    since v5.229.1:
    
    Fixes and performance enhancements:
    - allow `plplay` to support hardware decoding with EGL
    - fix an issue where custom shaders with `//!SAVE MAIN` did not save
      textures
    - fix a number of minor memory leaks
    - fix an issue where custom shaders that tried binding conditionally
      excluded textures generated superfluous errors
    - fix an issue where the libav helpers ran into undefined behavior when
      operating on the 128-bit image formats in recent versions of ffmpeg
    - fix a build issue on BSD platforms without libdl
    - fix an issue where freeing `pl_shader_obj` too early could lead to
      use-after-free errors if shaders still referenced these objects
    - fix an issue where applying film grain after debanding could trigger
      an assertion due to a change in bit depth
    - fix an issue where film grain generation was unnecessarily verbose due
      to LUT updates
    - fix an issue where tone mapping desaturation was not working as
      intended, resulting in strongly oversaturated colors
    - fix an issue where the red channel sometimes got unintentionally
      deleted from RGB input images
    - fix an issue where AV1 film grain synthesis did not work on pictures
      above 12 bit depth, such as could be the output of a previous filter
    - remove an unnecessary assertion that caused build issues on some
      versions of clang
    - fix an issue where we unintentionally used linear downscaling on HDR
      sources
    - fix an issue with false negatives in the PL_GAMUT_WARN algorithm, and
      also change the algorithm to make it more visually obvious
    - fix an issue where OpenGL on WSL2 was unintentionally rejected as a
      software rasterizer
    
  • v5.229.1
    v5.229.1
    
    This minor release fixes a crucial bug in v5.229.0, which caused a
    regression when using orthogonal scaler kernels on anything but simple
    scaling ratios, as well as other minor fixes.
    
    Fixes and performance enhancements:
    - fix an issue where the pl_shader_sample_ortho refactor broke
      orthogonal scalers inside pl_renderer, for anything but very simply
      scaling ratios
    - fix an issue where pl_shader_sample_ortho2 rejected some scaling
      ratios due to floating point inaccuracy
    - fix an issue where some extreme 'test' ICC profiles were unfairly
      rejected by the gamma detection code
    - fix an issue where some oddly-crafted ICC profiles could result in
      NaNs propagating into the shader math
    
  • v5.229.0
    v5.229.0
    
    This is a major release, bumping up the major version to v5 and dropping
    all APIs deprecated in v3.x. The other major breaking change of this
    release is a switch away from the external `libepoxy` and `mako`
    dependencies in favor of the (optionally bundled) `glad2` and `jinja2`.
    These are now included, along with various other build-time dependencies,
    as git submodules. Users are advised to clone with `git clone
    --recursive` in order to satisfy these dependencies automatically, while
    distros maintainers are nonetheless encouraged to continue packaging
    them.
    
    In addition, this release brings with it a number of new features and
    changes - including support for fully automatic GPU deinterlacing, error
    diffusion dithering, gamma-aware dithering, and a number of improvements
    to the handling of HDR sources and output displays, as well as several
    notable bug fixes and performance enhancements.
    
    Additions:
    - add `pl_gpu_limits.array_size_constants` to indicate whether or not
      push constants can be used to size arrays
    - add PL_HANDLE_MTL_TEX, PL_HANDLE_IOSURFACE and `pl_shared_mem.plane`
      to improve interop with MoltenVK
    - add the informational fields `pl_opengl.major, `pl_opengl.minor`,
      `pl_opengl_extensions` and the `pl_opengl_has_ext` utility function
    - add `pl_opengl_params.get_proc_addr` and `get_proc_addr_ex`
    - add `pl_deband_params.grain_neutral`, the effect of which is to scale
      down / disable adding noise near this value
    - add <libplacebo/shaders/deinterlacing.h>, containing a basic
      implementation of yadif, bob and weave
    - add support for deinterlacing metadata to `pl_render_params`,
      `pl_frame`, and `pl_source_frame`
    - add <libplacebo/shaders/dithering.h>, splitting this off from its
      previous location inside <libplacebo/shaders/colorspace.h>
    - add `pl_shader_error_diffusion` and related helper functions, as well
      as `pl_render_params.error_diffusion`
    - add `pl_dither_params.transfer` to support gamma-aware dithering
    - add `pl_icc_params.force_bpc` to help work around black point
      compensation issues on "broken" v4 and v2 profiles
    
    Changes:
    - fields and functions deprecated in libplacebo v3 have been removed
    - `python3-mako` is now bundled as a submodule to make resolving this
      dependency easier
    - drop `libepoxy` as a dependency, and require `glad` v2 instead, the
      latter of which is added as a submodule to make building easier
    - drop the `PL_STRUCT` transitional macro, and switch to a consistent
      API where e.g. `pl_tex` is a typedef of `const struct pl_tex_t *`.
    - `PL_LUT_CONVERSION` now explicitly overrides ICC profiles as well
    - HDR color spaces no longer default to having a black point of 0.005
      nits, instead now defaulting to "true" black (1e-7 nits)
    - BT.1886 sources are now automatically tuned to match the swapchain /
      detected target contrast, rather than defaulting to 1000:1
    - move `pl_queue_params.frame_duration` to `pl_source_frame.duration`
    - the `vulkan-link` and `opengl-loader` boolean meson options have been
      removed in favor of the `vk-proc-addr` and `gl-proc-addr` feature
      flags, defaulting to `auto` instead of `yes`
    - a copy of `vulkan.h` and `vk.xml` have been bundled as submodules to
      make satisfying these dependencies easier
    - `<libplacebo/opengl.h>`, `<libplacebo/vulkan.h>` and
      `<libplacebo/d3d11.h`> are now installed unconditonally, with stubs
      for `pl_vulkan_create` etc. available even if these features are
      disabled at compile time
    - `pl_render_info.index` no longer indicates the number of frames being
      mixed on PL_RENDER_STAGE_BLEND, instead being relegated to the new
      field `pl_render_info.count`
    - `pl_shader_sample_ortho` has been reworked in order to fix a design
      flaw in its API, see `pl_shader_sample_ortho2` for its replacement
    
    Fixes and performance enhancements:
    - fix a bug where shaders with dynamically sized arrays would fail to
      compile on MoltenVK
    - reduce the frequency at which polar compute shaders need to be
      recompiled
    - fix compilation issues with MSVC

      "broken" v4 or v2 profiles
    - fix undefined behavior on 32-bit vulkan systems
    - fix bugs in the vulkan swapchain recreation
    - fix an issue where HDR metadata was not correctly reflected back to
      the renderer on vulkan swapchains
    - fix a bug where d3d11 swapchains failed being created on older
      versions of windows where high-bit-depth swapchains are unavailable
    - fix a bug where HDR metadata sent to the swapchain was not correctly
      inferred to valid values
    - `pl_shader_deband` has been rewritten to slightly improve performance,
      especially when the texture has more channels than necessary
    - `pl_shader_deband` no longer raises the black point due to clipping
    - fix build issues on GCC < 6
    - improve validity of partially set `pl_color_space` structs
    - fix `pl_find_tone_map_function` not having an implementation
    - fix a bug where cubic spline frame mixing did not work in `plplay`

      correctly invalidate the ICC 3DLUT and renderer cache
    - greatly improve the performance and accuracy of 3DLUTs (ICC, .cube)
    - fix compilation on newer glslang and make this code forward-compatible
    - fix an issue where `pl_shader_dither` raised the apparent brightness
      of the image when dithering to low bit depths
    - fix compilation on vulkan systems with `vulkan.h` available but no
      vulkan loader
    - fix an issue where DV metadata requiring an EL was partially applied

      black point scaled to the mastering display, rather than absolute zero
    - fix an issue where disabling `async_compute` led to undefined behavior
      on systems with async compute queues available
    - fix an issue where debanding was applied *after* user shaders, causing
      massive performance/quality loss in the case of user shaders that
      upscaled the input planes somehow - in exchange for a slight
      performance penalty when rendering a heavily cropped source image with
      debanding enabled
    - fix an issue where plane shaders were sometimes not correctly merged
      with the following image combination shader
    - fix an issue where inverse tone mapping did not work with
      `pl_tone_map_auto`

      slight performance penalty on AMD systems
    - slightly boost the performance of shader LUTs in some very specific
      circumstances
    - fix an issue where nonlinear shader LUTs did not work on GLSL < 130

    output on D3D11, and a complete redesign of the way ICC profiles are
    handled.
    
    Additions:
    - add helper macros linearize() and delinearize(), expanding to the
      definition of the gamma function in use for the video signal
    - add various new helper functions relating to colorspaces and
      primaries, see the API change log for a more comprehensive list
    - add `pl_render_params.force_low_bit_depth_fbos` for
      debugging/performance tweaking purposes
    - add `pl_plane.flipped`, to allow representing individual flipped
      frames in a way that semantically decouples from the presentation rect
      (e.g. for OpenGL framebuffers, or planes with negative stride)
    - add '%' and '=' as operators to custom shaders, matching mpv
    - add `pl_vulkan.(un)lock_queue` for interop with other libraries
    - add `pl_frame.acquire/release` for better interop with hardware
      decoders. These are only called on an as-needed basis immediately
      before and after a frame is actually used for rendering, with only one
      frame being acquired at any given time
    - add `pl_film_grain_from_av` helper function
    - add support for configuring the swapchain color space on D3D11, using
      the existing pl_swapchain_colorspace_hint mechanism
    - add an entirely new ICC profile shader API, allowing ICC profiles to
      be persistently opened (pl_icc_open) and their metadata exposed,
      with explicit `pl_icc_decode` and `pl_icc_encode` operations instead
      of a single monolithic decode+apply step
    - add `pl_render_params.plane_up/downscaler`, allowing to override the
      upscaler/downscaler for subsampled chroma planes in particular
    - add `pl_filter_function/config.name` for debugging/logging purposes
    
    Changes:
    - pl_log_create is no longer an exported symbol, instead becoming
      versioned by the compiled API version. `pl_log_create` is now a macro
      expanding to the name of this versioned function
    - `pl_overlay_part` has been refactored, adding the new field `coords`
      to control the coordinate system relative to which the part is placed
      on-screen, as well as being generalized to support floating point
      positions
    - deprecate PL_HOOK_PRE_OVERLAY, as a result of overlays no longer being
      applied during the rendering pipeline
    - default `pl_color_map_params.gamut_mode` to PL_GAMUT_CLIP, replacing
      PL_GAMUT_DARKEN
    - DRM modifiers are now required for vulkan dmabuf interop
    - `pl_vulkan.queue_*` are now *always* set to valid queues for that
      operation type, even if it means including duplicates
    - `pl_render_image` with NULL image now reports itself as a blend pass
      (blending 0 frames) instead of a frame pass to the info callbacks
    - completely refactor/remove the old ICC/3DLUT shader API
      (`pl_icc_update`, `pl_icc_apply` etc.)
    - <libplacebo/shaders/icc.h> is now installed unconditionally, with
      `pl_icc_open` simply failing when built without lcms2
    - versions of glslang before the new versioning scheme (10.x.x) are no
      longer supported
    
    Fixes and performance enhancements:
    - fix pl_tone_map_reinhard.param_min to prevent division by zero
    - fix left-over asserts preventing misaligned buffer uploads via
      pl_upload_plane
    - fix bug where emulated rgb textures had alpha incorrectly
      preinitialized to 0 instead of 1
    - overlays are now always rendered onto the final blended image, solving
      various bugs and unexpected edge cases due to image overlays being
      blended in the middle of the rendering pipeline
    - fix a bug where tone-mapping without a state object resulted in broken
      behavior
    - allow `pl_shader_sample_polar` to work with external samplers or
      flipped textures without incurring a performance penalty
    - fix the behavior of pl_shader_sample_oversample, which was previously
      producing very wrong results
    - fix an issue where the dither depth was incorrectly picked in a number
      of edge cases
    - fix a number of issues with the H.274 film grain shader
    - fix a bug where grayscale images were slightly too green
    - fix a bug where `pl_vulkan.queue_transfer` was never set
    - fix possible UB in pl_opengl_wrap_tex on some drivers with broken
      texture channel depth queries
    - fix issue where some shader LUTs were being regenerated on every
      single frame rather than properly cached
    - fix shader compilation error on older GLSL
    - fix bug where images were sometimes undesiredly being scaled in linear
      light
    - fix SDR<->SDR tone-mapping to properly be a no-op (linear stretch)
    - fix use-after-free in pl_get_buffer2's error path
    - fix d3d11 build issues on older versions of the SDK
    - fix edge case where auto-detected vulkan in the absence of
      glslang/shaderc caused the build to fail
    - fix build issues with up-to-date vulkan SDK
    - fix issue where non-coherent buffer imports were used in ways not
      adhering to the non-coherent memory atom size
    - fix various issues and undefined behavior when flushing mapped
      buffers, especially for non-coherent memory
    - avoid some validation warnings about improper pipeline barriers
    - fix runtime error with up-to-date MoltenVK
    - fix issue where some pl_frame_mix structs resulted no frames being
      mixed, triggering an assertion
    - fix bug where overlays were drawn flipped onto flipped planes when
      rendering a NULL image
    - fix allocation alignment issues on some platforms (notably win32 i686)
    - fix compatibility issues with older macOS
    - fix error handling in pl_cond_timedwait
    - fix build issues with older vulkan versions
    - fix build issue of demos/sdlimage in some configurations
    - reduce VRAM consumption of ICC 3DLUTs by 50%

      not sampleable
    
  • v4.192.0
    v4.192.0
    
    This is a minor release, designed to synchronize with the release of
    FFmpeg 5.0. It focuses mainly on improvements to color space handling -
    including support for Dolby Vision Profile 5/8 content, completely
    rewritten HDR tone/gamut mapping, and bringing `pl_color_space` more in
    line with HDR10 metadata. Libplacebo now generally respects things like
    mastering color space metadata, especially for PL_INTENT_SATURATION.
    This technology is not yet perfect, and will be iterated upon in future
    versions of libplacebo. This release serves mainly to lay the API
    groundwork.
    
    Other notable changes include support for H.274 film grain synthesis, as well
    as improvements to the AVFrame<->libplacebo interop (in particular, support for
    hardware accelerated frames), and various fixes related to alpha transparency.
    
    As usual, also includes a number of bug fixes, performance improvements, and
    miscellaneous improvements to the API and debug messages - such as the
    inclusion of a brand-new Vulkan memory allocator, and a complete overhaul of
    the Vulkan synchronization infrastructure to use timeline semaphores,
    again for compatibility with FFmpeg Vulkan contexts.
    
    Additions:
    - add support for H.274 film grain synthesis
    - add preprocessor macros for all params structs, allowing users to write e.g.
      `pl_render_params(.foo = bar)` to construct a `pl_render_params` pointer
      which implicitly includes any default fields, without the need for explicitly
      reading from pl_render_default_params
    - add support for video/display rotation in the renderer
    - add `pl_frame_copy_stream_props`
    - add support for blending transparency against a checkerboard pattern
    - add `pl_fmt.signature`, for render pass compatibility
    - add `pl_pass_params.index_fmt` to allow 32-bit index buffers
    - add `pl_dispatch_reset_frame`, to allow explicitly advancing the state
      of the PRNG and/or triggering garbage collection
    - add the possibility of adding extra debug tags to GPU resources, which
      the default params helper macros set to the current source location
    - add `pl_gpu_limits.max_variable_comps`, correctly specifying the upper
      bound on the number of uniform variable floats
    - add `pl_vulkan_get`, `pl_opengl_get` and `pl_d3d11_get`
    - add `pl_shader_set_alpha`
    - add `pl_map_avframe_ex` and `pl_unmap_avframe`, which allow mapping extra
      AVFrame resources, and also support the use of hardware frames such as vaapi,
      dmabuf or vulkan
    - add support for Dolby Vision color reshaping, via PL_COLOR_SYSTEM_DOLBYVISION
      and `pl_dovi_metadata` - including automatic mapping from AVFrames
    - add <libplacebo/tone_mapping.h>, defining a collection of tone mapping
      primitives, and mechanisms for constructing LUTs, and including new
      functions such as BT.2446a and `spline`, as well as improvements to old
      curves such as `hable` and `linear` to make them more perceptually linear
    - add a variety of new tone mapping modes (see `pl_tone_map_mode`), including
      auto-selection based on heuristics of the source characteristics
    - add a variety of new gamut mapping modes (see `pl_gamut_mode`)
    - add support for `NAME_gather` macros for use in user shaders
    
    Changes:
    - replace <libplacebo/shaders/av1.h> by the more general
      <libplacebo/shaders/film_grain.h>
    - remove API members deprecated for libplacebo v3
    - PL_ALPHA_UNKNOWN tagging on files is now assumed to be PL_ALPHA_INDEPENDENT,
      rather than PL_ALPHA_PREMULTIPLIED, and `pl_shader_decode_color` now also
      outputs independent alpha by default
    - the `box` filter was removed entirely, due to a number of issues preventing
      it from being effectively useful in practice
    - replace `pl_tex_transfer.stride_w/h` (specified in texels) by
      `row/depth_pitch` (specified in bytes)
    - replace `pl_pass_params.target_dummy` by `target_format`, and
      requiring that rendered textures are compatible with this format
    - allow calling `pl_queue_update` on NULL
    - <libplacebo/vulkan.h> now requires support for the timeline semaphores
      feature, included automatically in Vulkan 1.2 and available via
      VK_KHR_timeline_semaphore in previous versions
    - change pl_vulkan_hold/release API: removing VkAccessFlags, and replacing the
      VkSemaphore by pl_vulkan_sem (for timeline semaphore support)
    - `pl_queue_push` may now be used to push frames out-of-order
    - `pl_render_image_mix` may now be used on single frames, in which case
      libplacebo will still go through the mixer cache, potentially speeding up
      single-frame redraws (see: `pl_render_params.skip_caching_single_frames`)
    - remove `pl_vulkan_params.disable_events`
    - `pl_shared_mem.size` no longer needs to be set for DMABUFs and D3D11 textures
    - remove support for 64-bit integer texture formats, since these are very
      poorly supported on most platforms and also extremely rarely needed
    - completely refactor all of the tone mapping settings in `pl_color_map_params`,
      replacing the old `desaturation_*` and `tone_mapping_algo` by the new
      `tone_mapping_mode` and `tone_mapping_function`, and the old `gamut_warning`
      and `gamut_clipping` by the new `gamut_mode`
    - completely refactor `pl_color_space`: deprecate the old `sig_peak`,
      `sig_scale` etc. fields in favor of merging `pl_hdr_metadata` into this
      struct, and update the API of several functions that previusly took
      `pl_color_space` struct values, to instead take pointers
    - remove `pl_color_light` entirely, instead treating the OOTF as an inseparable
      part of the color transfer function (e.g. HLG)
    - delete `pl_swapchain_colors` in favor of `pl_color_space` instead (which
      contains the exact same fields now)
    
    Fixes and performance enhancements:
    - improve the quality and performance of GPU random number generation
    - fix int/float compilation error on GLES in dither shader
    - correctly set minimum integer precision on GLES
    - allow pl_recreate_plane to create non-host-readable FBOs
    - correct GLSL version requirement for 3D LUT shader
    - correctly check for presence of GL_EXT_texture_integer
    - correctly check for presence of GL_EXT_texture_norm16 on GLES 3.0
    - correctly check for presence of GL_EXT_color_buffer_float
    - replace GL_ARB_debug_output by GL_KHR_debug
    - fix GLSL shader version for GLES 2.0
    - add support for GL_EXt_texture_rg on GLES
    - use GL_ARRAY_BUFFER instead of GL_COPY_WRITE_BUFFER (GLES compatibility)
    - correctly check for GL_UNPACK_IMAGE_HEIGHT presence

  • v4.192.0-rc1
    v4.192.0-rc1
    
    This is a minor release that focuses mainly on improvements to color space
    handling - including support for Dolby Vision Profile 5/8 content, completely
    rewritten HDR tone/gamut mapping, and bringing `pl_color_space` more in line
    with HDR10 metadata. Libplaceb now generally respects things like mastering
    color space metadata, especially for PL_INTENT_SATURATION. This technology is
    not yet perfect, and will be iterated upon in future versions of libplacebo.
    This release serves mainly to lay the API groundwork.
    
    Other notable changes include support for H.274 film grain synthesis, as well
    as improvements to the AVFrame<->libplacebo interop (in particular, support for
    hardware accelerated frames), and various fixes related to alpha transparency.
    
    As usual, also includes a number of bug fixes, performance improvements, and
    miscellaneous improvements to the API and debug messages - such as the
    inclusion of a brand-new Vulkan memory allocator, and a complete overhaul of
    the Vulkan synchronization infrastructure to use timeline semaphores.
    
    Additions:
    - add support for H.274 film grain synthesis
    - add preprocessor macros for all params structs, allowing users to write e.g.
      `pl_render_params(.foo = bar)` to construct a `pl_render_params` pointer
      which implicitly includes any default fields, without the need for explicitly
      reading from pl_render_default_params
    - add support for video/display rotation in the renderer
    - add `pl_frame_copy_stream_props`
    - add support for blending transparency against a checkerboard pattern
    - add `pl_fmt.signature`, for render pass compatibility
    - add `pl_pass_params.index_fmt` to allow 32-bit index buffers
    - add `pl_dispatch_reset_frame`, to allow explicitly advancing the state
      of the PRNG and/or triggering garbage collection
    - add the possibility of adding extra debug tags to GPU resources, which
      the default params helper macros set to the current source location
    - add `pl_gpu_limits.max_variable_comps`, correctly specifying the upper
      bound on the number of uniform variable floats
    - add `pl_vulkan_get`, `pl_opengl_get` and `pl_d3d11_get`
    - add `pl_shader_set_alpha`
    - add `pl_map_avframe_ex` and `pl_unmap_avframe`, which allow mapping extra
      AVFrame resources, and also support the use of hardware frames such as vaapi,
      dmabuf or vulkan
    - add support for Dolby Vision color reshaping, via PL_COLOR_SYSTEM_DOLBYVISION
      and `pl_dovi_metadata` - including automatic mapping from AVFrames
    - add <libplacebo/tone_mapping.h>, defining a collection of tone mapping
      primitives, and mechanisms for constructing LUTs, and including new
      functions such as BT.2446a and `spline`, as well as improvements to old
      curves such as `hable` and `linear` to make them more perceptually linear
    - add a variety of new tone mapping modes (see `pl_tone_map_mode`), including
      auto-selection based on heuristics of the source characteristics
    - add a variety of new gamut mapping modes (see `pl_gamut_mode`)
    - add support for `NAME_gather` macros for use in user shaders
    
    Changes:
    - replace <libplacebo/shaders/av1.h> by the more general
      <libplacebo/shaders/film_grain.h>
    - remove API members deprecated for libplacebo v3
    - PL_ALPHA_UNKNOWN tagging on files is now assumed to be PL_ALPHA_INDEPENDENT,
      rather than PL_ALPHA_PREMULTIPLIED, and `pl_shader_decode_color` now also
      outputs independent alpha by default
    - the `box` filter was removed entirely, due to a number of issues preventing
      it from being effectively useful in practice
    - replace `pl_tex_transfer.stride_w/h` (specified in texels) by
      `row/depth_pitch` (specified in bytes)
    - replace `pl_pass_params.target_dummy` by `target_format`, and
      requiring that rendered textures are compatible with this format
    - allow calling `pl_queue_update` on NULL
    - <libplacebo/vulkan.h> now requires support for the timeline semaphores
      feature, included automatically in Vulkan 1.2 and available via
      VK_KHR_timeline_semaphore in previous versions
    - change pl_vulkan_hold/release API: removing VkAccessFlags, and replacing the
      VkSemaphore by pl_vulkan_sem (for timeline semaphore support)
    - `pl_queue_push` may now be used to push frames out-of-order
    - `pl_render_image_mix` may now be used on single frames, in which case
      libplacebo will still go through the mixer cache, potentially speeding up
      single-frame redraws (see: `pl_render_params.skip_caching_single_frames`)
    - remove `pl_vulkan_params.disable_events`
    - `pl_shared_mem.size` no longer needs to be set for DMABUFs and D3D11 textures
    - remove support for 64-bit integer texture formats, since these are very
      poorly supported on most platforms and also extremely rarely needed
    - completely refactor all of the tone mapping settings in `pl_color_map_params`,
      replacing the old `desaturation_*` and `tone_mapping_algo` by the new
      `tone_mapping_mode` and `tone_mapping_function`, and the old `gamut_warning`
      and `gamut_clipping` by the new `gamut_mode`
    - completely refactor `pl_color_space`: deprecate the old `sig_peak`,
      `sig_scale` etc. fields in favor of merging `pl_hdr_metadata` into this
      struct, and update the API of several functions that previusly took
      `pl_color_space` struct values, to instead take pointers
    - remove `pl_color_light` entirely, instead treating the OOTF as an inseparable
      part of the color transfer function (e.g. HLG)
    - delete `pl_swapchain_colors` in favor of `pl_color_space` instead (which
      contains the exact same fields now)

    - improve the quality and performance of GPU random number generation
    - fix int/float compilation error on GLES in dither shader
    - correctly set minimum integer precision on GLES
    - allow pl_recreate_plane to create non-host-readable FBOs

  • v4.157.0
    v4.157.0
    
    This is a major new release involving a significant overhaul of the
    public API, full thread safety, support for Direct3D 11 / Win32 /
    MSVC, native HDR output, and more.
    
    The primary way of accessing most libplacebo objects has been revamped.
    Rather than writing e.g. `const struct pl_tex *image`, users now simply
    write `pl_tex image`. In addition, the `struct pl_context *ctx` was
    universally refactored and replaced by `pl_log log`, with no concern
    besides logging.
    
    Direct3D 11 is now natively supported by libplacebo, and compiling on
    Windows in general has been made more straightforward.
    
    The entire API was revamped to be thread safe by default, even when
    using OpenGL (assuming the user provides the appropriate context binding
    callbacks). Accompanying this change, the `pl_queue` has been rewritten
    with multi-threaded decoding loops in mind. See the accompanying
    `plplay` demo for an illustration.
    
    Finally, this release brings with it a lot of features for feature
    parity with mpv, such as the ability to get pass stats / timings,
    oversample scaling, and more.
    
    Additions:
    - add a `void *user_data` field to `pl_frame`, with no further
      interpretation by libplacebo
    - add `pl_queue_push_block`, useful for multi-threaded decoding loops
    - add a `uint64_t timeout` to `pl_queue_update`, allowing it to
      block until frames are available even when not using a `get_frame`
      callback
    - make `pl_queue_update` also return valid data when failing with
      PL_QUEUE_MORE, allowing access to partial/incomplete mix outputs
    - allow calling `pl_render_image` on `image == NULL`, to render overlays
      only
    - add `pl_get_buffer2`, API-compatible with AVCodecContext.get_buffer2
    - add support for blitting from/to several obscure formats such as
      a1rgb5 or 64-bit integer formats
    - add `pl_tex_clear_ex` to support clearing integer textures
    - add `pl_render_params.ignore_icc_profiles`, for debugging
    - add `pl_queue_params.interpolation_threshold`, to allow disabling
      frame mixing when the source FPS approximately matches the display FPS
    - always accept DRM_FORMAT_MOD_INVALID for texture imports
    - add extra windowing functions to <libplacebo/filters.h>
    - add the `pl_fmt.gatherable` capability
    - add `pl_shader_sample_oversample`, a variant of nearest-neighbour
      that preserves pixel aspect ratios - good for pixel art
    - add `pl_scale_filters` alongside `pl_frame_mixers`
    - add support for compile-time specialization constants (`pl_constant`),
      and use them to speed up recompilation of shaders with hard-coded
      constants
    - add `pl_render_params.dynamic_constants`, which lifts hard-coded
      constants to dynamic variables - useful for scenarios in which render
      parameters are expected to change very frequently
    - add more PL_COLOR_TRC_GAMMAxx definitions
    - implement full black point adaptation, even when not using ICC
      profiles, and infer this black-point-adapted BT.1886 instead of gamma
      2.2 as the default gamma curve for SDR files.
    - add `pl_shader_res.description` and `pl_shader_res.steps`, containing
      more friendly names for shaders plus a detailed list of operations
      that shader is performing
    - add callbacks to `pl_dispatch` and `pl_renderer` for informing users
      of executed passes and their execution times
    - add support for the Direct3D 11 graphics API
    - add `pl_swapchain_colorspace_hint`, replacing
      `pl_swapchain_hdr_metadata` as the new way to update swapchain
      colorspace metadata at runtime. This can be used to e.g. switch
      between HDR and SDR mode, for supported swapchains
    - add `pl_peak_detect_params.minimum_peak`, allowing users to constrain
      the detected peak values to only be sensible (e.g. above 1.0)
    
    Changes:
    - simplify the `shaderc` pkg-config check - rather than querying for
      `shaderc_shared.pc`, `shaderc_combined.pc` etc, simply check for
      `shaderc.pc`, matching upstream
    - make almost everything thread-safe, and document the parts that
      aren't. In particular, almost all GPU state access is now thread safe,
      freeing up users to access `pl_gpu` instances from multiple threads,
      even when the underlying API is OpenGL
    - deprecate `disable_overlay_sampling`, now effectively always true
    - `struct pl_overlay` has been refactored completely to allow for
      overlays with more than one part per texture. The only way of using
      this struct is deprecated
    - prefix `enum pl_queue_status` members by `PL_`, fixing an oversight in
      the previous version of this API
    - make `pl_renderer` automatically clear the target image, freeing users
      from the responsibility of calling `pl_frame_clear` themselves. This
      can be controlled via three new fields in `pl_render_params`:
      `background_color`, `background_transparency` and `skip_target_clearing`
    - rename `pl_context` to `pl_log`, and make its use optional. The old
      names have been deprecated. It now lives inside <libplacebo/log.h>
    - add `typedefs` to all public-facing object types, o make them shorter
      to reference. For example, `const struct pl_tex *tex` is now simply
      `pl_tex tex`. This change affects almost every type of object in
      libplacebo. The old way of referencing these objects is still
      possible, but considered deprecated. Note that due to C++-specific
      reasons, C++ users *must* upgrade their codeto the new API style
    - remove PL_PRIM_TRIANGLE_FAN
    - remove support for 64-bit float formats, which probably don't work on
      any Vulkan implementation
    - stop contrast-limiting ICC profiles, instead assuming perceptual
      profiles have infinite contrast
    - remove `pl_shader_signature` for being necessarily unsafe
    - require Vulkan 1.1 as the minimum vulkan version
    - rename `pl_oversample_frame_mixer` to `pl_filter_oversample`, and
      allow using it for image scaling as well
    - change `pl_color_space_monitor` from PL_COLOR_TRC_GAMMA22 to UNKNOWN
    - change the signature of `pl_shader_(de)linearize` slightly
    - significantly increase the default strengths of the desaturation
      settings in`pl_color_map_params`, to mimic the hollywood feel
    - refactor `pl_glsl_desc` and `pl_gpu_caps` completely, in favor of the
      new structs `pl_glsl_version` and `pl_gpu_limits`, with new members.
      The old API is still available for the time being, but deprecated
    
    Fixes and performance improvements:
    - fix possible use-after-free in `plplay`
    - don't explode `pl_queue` on NaN/Infinity/weird PTS values
    - fix edge case involving plane merging for cropped images
    - improve `plplay` by using threaded libplacebo APIs
    - several fixes for edge cases in <libplacebo/utils/libav.h> helpers
    - several fixes for 32-bit platforms (e.g. integer overflows)
    - fix blending edge cases involving overlays and alpha channels
    - skip some unnecessary matrix multiplications for RGB content
    - allow for some small backwards PTS jumps in `pl_queue_update`
    - fix drawing overlays to subsampled targets
    - `pl_dispatch` now garbage collects old, unused passes to free up RAM
    - various improvements to debug/diagnonstic printouts
    - allow blitting from e.g. 2D to 3D textures
    - slightly improve small texture transfers in some emulated edge cases
    - fix several possible hash collisions for generated shaders, making the
      shader dispatch mechanism significantly more robust
    - properly allow building against vulkan headers without linking to the
      vulkan loader
    - C++ compatibility for public headers
    - improve performance of textureGather-based polar sampling, especially
      for radius 2 and 4
    - fix vulkan texture handle capabilities check, again
    - don't include superfluous pNext chains, fixes undefined behavior
    - fix crash on edge case when shader compilation fails
    - infer unsampled alpha channels as 1.0, rather than 0.0
    - properly infer `target->color` in `pl_render_image`
    - properly tag the OpenGL swapchain as pl_color_space_monitor
    - fix possible crash in pl_get_detected_peak
    - fix several edge cases in pl_render_image_mix relating to LUTs,
      3DLUTs, HDR peak detection and so on
    - fix sig_peak inferral for HLG content
    - several compatibility fixes for older GLSL, and GLES 2.0
    - fix possible use-after-free in pl_shader_custom
    - fix `pl_color_map_params.gamut_clipping` for HDR targets
    - reduce the number of redundant color space transformations required
      for frame mixing
    - fix edge case in pl_dispatch_save for some ancient GL drivers
    - several fixes for LLVM/MinGW/MSVC
    - fix bug where pl_pass_run incorrectly invalidated/accessed
      `params->target` even for compute shaders
    - add windows compatibility to several demo programs
    - fix the pl_fmt <-> DRM fourcc format mapping table
    - fix inappropriate texture access function for generated samplers with
      the sampler2D API
    - avoid generating spurious EGL errors when probing for EGL format
      modifiers

    - add a `void *user_data` field to `pl_frame`, with no further
      interpretation by libplacebo
    - add `pl_queue_push_block`, useful for multi-threaded decoding loops
    - add a `uint64_t timeout` to `pl_queue_update`, allowing it to
      block until frames are available even when not using a `get_frame`
      callback
    - make `pl_queue_update` also return valid data when failing with
      PL_QUEUE_MORE, allowing access to partial/incomplete mix outputs
    - allow calling `pl_render_image` on `image == NULL`, to render overlays
      only
    - add `pl_get_buffer2`, API-compatible with AVCodecContext.get_buffer2
    - add support for blitting from/to several obscure formats such as
      a1rgb5 or 64-bit integer formats
    - add `pl_tex_clear_ex` to support clearing integer textures
    - add `pl_render_params.ignore_icc_profiles`, for debugging
    - add `pl_queue_params.interpolation_threshold`, to allow disabling
      frame mixing when the source FPS approximately matches the display FPS
    - always accept DRM_FORMAT_MOD_INVALID for texture imports
    - add extra windowing functions to <libplacebo/filters.h>
    - add the `pl_fmt.gatherable` capability
    - add `pl_shader_sample_oversample`, a variant of nearest-neighbour
      that preserves pixel aspect ratios - good for pixel art
    - add `pl_scale_filters` alongside `pl_frame_mixers`
    - add support for compile-time specialization constants (`pl_constant`),
      and use them to speed up recompilation of shaders with hard-coded
      constants
    - add `pl_render_params.dynamic_constants`, which lifts hard-coded
      constants to dynamic variables - useful for scenarios in which render
      parameters are expected to change very frequently
    - add more PL_COLOR_TRC_GAMMAxx definitions
    - implement full black point adaptation, even when not using ICC
      profiles, and infer this black-point-adapted BT.1886 instead of gamma
      2.2 as the default gamma curve for SDR files.
    - add `pl_shader_res.description` and `pl_shader_res.steps`, containing
      more friendly names for shaders plus a detailed list of operations
      that shader is performing
    - add callbacks to `pl_dispatch` and `pl_renderer` for informing users
      of executed passes and their execution times
    - add support for the Direct3D 11 graphics API
    - add `pl_swapchain_colorspace_hint`, replacing
      `pl_swapchain_hdr_metadata` as the new way to update swapchain
      colorspace metadata at runtime. This can be used to e.g. switch
      between HDR and SDR mode, for supported swapchains
    - add `pl_peak_detect_params.minimum_peak`, allowing users to constrain
      the detected peak values to only be sensible (e.g. above 1.0)
    
    Changes:
    - simplify the `shaderc` pkg-config check - rather than querying for
      `shaderc_shared.pc`, `shaderc_combined.pc` etc, simply check for
      `shaderc.pc`, matching upstream
    - make almost everything thread-safe, and document the parts that
      aren't. In particular, almost all GPU state access is now thread safe,
      freeing up users to access `pl_gpu` instances from multiple threads,
      even when the underlying API is OpenGL
    - deprecate `disable_overlay_sampling`, now effectively always true
    - `struct pl_overlay` has been refactored completely to allow for
      overlays with more than one part per texture. The only way of using
      this struct is deprecated
    - prefix `enum pl_queue_status` members by `PL_`, fixing an oversight in
      the previous version of this API
    - make `pl_renderer` automatically clear the target image, freeing users
      from the responsibility of calling `pl_frame_clear` themselves. This
      can be controlled via three new fields in `pl_render_params`:
      `background_color`, `background_transparency` and `skip_target_clearing`
    - rename `pl_context` to `pl_log`, and make its use optional. The old
      names have been deprecated. It now lives inside <libplacebo/log.h>
    - add `typedefs` to all public-facing object types, o make them shorter
      to reference. For example, `const struct pl_tex *tex` is now simply
      `pl_tex tex`. This change affects almost every type of object in
      libplacebo. The old way of referencing these objects is still
      possible, but considered deprecated. Note that due to C++-specific
      reasons, C++ users *must* upgrade their codeto the new API style
    - remove PL_PRIM_TRIANGLE_FAN
    - remove support for 64-bit float formats, which probably don't work on
      any Vulkan implementation
    - stop contrast-limiting ICC profiles, instead assuming perceptual
      profiles have infinite contrast
    - remove `pl_shader_signature` for being necessarily unsafe
    - require Vulkan 1.1 as the minimum vulkan version
    - rename `pl_oversample_frame_mixer` to `pl_filter_oversample`, and
      allow using it for image scaling as well
    - change `pl_color_space_monitor` from PL_COLOR_TRC_GAMMA22 to UNKNOWN
    - change the signature of `pl_shader_(de)linearize` slightly
    - significantly increase the default strengths of the desaturation
      settings in`pl_color_map_params`, to mimic the hollywood feel
    - refactor `pl_glsl_desc` and `pl_gpu_caps` completely, in favor of the
      new structs `pl_glsl_version` and `pl_gpu_limits`, with new members.
      The old API is still available for the time being, but deprecated

  • v3.120.0
    v3.120.0
    
    This is a feature release, introducing frame mixing, DRM format
    modifiers, and support for custom LUTs -, while also greatly expanding
    the available demo programs, in particular the `plplay` video player.
    
    The main highlight is the new `pl_queue` abstraction living in
    <libplacebo/utils/frame_queue.h>. This greatly simplifies the core of a
    libplacebo-based video renderer by translating a stream of input frames
    into an array of GPU-mapped textures suitable for frame mixing, given a
    corresponding vsync timestamp. New frames can be delivered to this API
    using a push or pull model, and they are lazily uploaded on an as-needed
    basis as well as internally garbage collected when no longer needed.
    This abstraction also contains all needed machinery for estimating
    source/display framerates by comparing and averaging timestamps, freeing
    users from the burden of having to accurately determine this information
    a priori.
    
    Also worth mentioning is the addition of support for custom LUTs,
    currently only in Adobe's .cube format. They can be applied flexibly at
    a number of locations in the video processing pipeline, including as a
    replacement for YUV<->RGB conversion or tone/gamut mapping, and fed with
    either normalized linear light or native-gamma values.
    
    Among the included demo programs, the `plplay` example video player has
    been greatly expanded - adding support for a settings GUI (based on
    nuklear), frame timing and mixing, custom shaders, and more. This
    example video player now serves as a convenient platform to demonstrate
    all of libplacebo's advanced rendering features.
    
    Finally, all of libplacebo now contains only code written entirely from
    scratch (rather than deriving from mpv), opening up the possibility to
    explore different licenses besides the current LGPLv2.1+. In particular,
    permissive (MIT/BSD-style) licenses are being considered.
    
    Additions:
    - add asynchronous GPU callbacks, specifically to `pl_tex_transfer`,
      allowing for non-blocking host memory transfer operations
    - add `pl_shared_mem.stride_w/h` to control dmabuf pitch
    - add `pl_render_image_mix` to blend multiple frames into a single
      output image, given relative timestamp information
    - add the `pl_filter_mitchell_clamp` filter preset
    - add `pl_render_params.preserve_mixing_cache` to speed up redraws after
      renderer size changes when frame mixing is active

    - implement `PL_HANDLE_HOST_PTR` for the OpenGL backend
    - implement drm format modifiers for vulkan
    - add a new field `pl_fmt.modifiers` for DRM format modifier negotiation
    - add new header <libplacebo/shaders/lut.h> to load custom LUTs
      (currently only supporting the .cube format)
    - add `index_data/buf` to `pl_pass_run_params`, adding support for
      indexed vertex data when dispatching shader passes
    - add `pl_dispatch_vertex` to allow dispatching fragment shaders using
      a list of custom vertices with custom vertex attributes
    - add `pl_frame_recreate_from_avframe` and `pl_download_avframe` to help
      downloading GPU textures back into AVFrame form
    - add a new header <libplacebo/utils/frame_queue.h> to assist in taking
      a stream of (Frame, PTS) pairs as well as a list of VSync times and
      turning them into a stream of `pl_frame_mix` structs
    - add `pl_white_from_temp` and `pl_color_adjustment.temperature` to
      apply white point adjustments between correlated color temperatures (K)
    - add `pl_filter_preset.description` containing a longer, human-readable
      name for a given filter preset
    
    Changes:
    - `pl_3dlut_params` has been renamed `pl_icc_params`
    - `pl_render_params.force_3dlut` has been renamed `force_icc_lut`
    - `pl_3dlut_update/apply` have been renamed to `pl_icc_update/apply` and
      moved to a (conditionally installed) new header <libplacebo/shaders/icc.h>
    - `pl_upload_plane` no longer initializes `out_plane->shift_x/y` to 0,
      instead leaving them unmodified (to avoid clobbering existing shift data)
    - `pl_filter_box` has been renamed to `pl_filter_nearest`
    - `pl_filter_triangle` has been renamed to `pl_filter_bilinear`
    - `pl_render_params.frame_mixer = NULL` now disables frame mixing - to
      get back the old behaviour, set this to `&pl_oversample_frame_mixer`.
    - `pl_color_map_params.gamut_warning` now highlights out-of-gamut colors
      in bright pink, rather than the old (ill-defined) inversion behaviour
    - `pl_named_filter_config` has been renamed to `pl_filter_preset`
    - `pl_find_named_filter` has been renamed to `pl_find_filter_preset`
    - ditto for `pl_named_filter_function` and `pl_filter_function_preset`

    - fix buffer overflow in custom shader STORAGE blocks
    - fix include path for glslang >= 11.0.0
    - actually enable shader subgroup operations for HDR peak detection
    - fix locale dependence of shader parsing primitives

    - fix compilation issues on C++ due to the use of reserved identifiers
    - fix `pl_get_detected_peak` on platforms without host-visible SSBOs
    - fix edge case in vulkan texture handle capabilities check

    - fix handling of custom shader COMPUTE blocks
    - correctly apply hue and saturation controls for non-YCbCr color spaces
    
  • v3.104.0
    v3.104.0
    
    This is a major release, introducing many new features and
    modifications. Most importantly, libplacebo now interoperates well with
    FFmpeg's libav* abstractions. This is primarily exposed via a new set of
    helpers, <libplacebo/utils/libav.h>, implemented as a single header
    library. In addition to this, a number of other supporting changes have
    been made to the API, most notably the unification of `pl_image` and
    `pl_render_target` into a single `pl_frame` concept, similar in spirit
    to AVFrame. As such, libplacebo now supports **rendering to planar
    targets**, including subsampled YCbCr.
    
    Besides the libav* compatibility changes, this release also brings with
    it a new feature for custom shaders: buffer blocks, and persistent
    storage. This can be used by third parties to implement stateful shaders
    (e.g. motion interpolation or temporal deinterlacing), or be leveraged
    to speed up some shaders by combining multiple passes into one.
    
    Finally, various import/export procedures have been expanded, including
    the ability to import host pointers and real-world DMABUFs.
    
    Additions:
    - add `pl_memory_qualifiers`, plus a corresponding `pl_shader_desc.memory`,
      to allow attaching GLSL memory qualifiers (coherent, volatile etc.) to
      shader descriptors
    - add functions `pl_dispatch_save` and `pl_dispatch_load` to allow
      saving/restoring the contents of an entire `pl_dispatch`'s cache
    - add functions `pl_renderer_save` and `pl_renderer_load` to allow
      saving/restoring the contents of an entire `pl_renderer`'s cache
    - add `pl_vulkan_swapchain_params.prefer_hdr`, which will cause the
      surface format selection logic to try HDR output formats first
    - add `pl_buf_copy` to copy from one buffer to another
    - add `pl_get_detected_peak`, to read back the result of peak detection
    - add `pl_primaries_superset` to test if one set of primaries is fully
      enclosed by another
    - add `pl_color_map_params.gamut_clipping`, which will colorimetrically
      clip any out-of-gamut colors by desaturating them towards neutral gray
      until they're in-gamut, rather than clipping per channel as before
    - add `PL_GPU_CAP_SUBGROUPS` and `pl_gpu_limits.subgroup_size`, to
      expose GLSL subgroup functionality via the `pl_gpu` interface
    - add `pl_gpu_is_failed`, to query at a high level whether the `pl_gpu`
      is in some internal failure state. GPUs in this state should be
      recreated, using the appropriate mechanism
    - add `pl_shader_custom`, to allow injecting arbitrary custom GLSL code
      into a `pl_shader`.
    - add `pl_buf_params.import_handle` to allow importing buffers
    - add `PL_HANDLE_HOST_POTR`, to allow importing arbitrary host pointers
    - add `pl_pass_run_params.vertex_buf`, to allow drawing vertex data
      directly from a `pl_buf`, guarded by `pl_gpu_limits.max_vbo_size`
    - add `_COUNT` members to all public enums, for consistency
    - add `pl_shared_mem.drm_format_mod`, to allow communicating DRM format
      modifiers when importing/exporting textures
    - add support for importing DMABUFs via EGL, via the new fields
      `pl_opengl_params.egl_display/context`
    - add `pl_fmt.fourcc` to facilitate mapping between `pl_fmt` and DRM
    - add the missing `pl_var_*` helpers, for consistency
    - add `pl_plane_data_align` to help with aligning `pl_plane_data`
      structs to byte boundaries
    - add support for STORAGE textures in user shaders, which can be used to
      persist data across separate invocations of the shader
    - add support for BUFFER blocks in user shaders, which can be used to
      create UBOs or SSBOs for use inside shaders, the latter of which can
      also persist across frames and be used to store persistent state
    - add PL_COLOR_PRIM_EBU_3213 and PL_COLOR_PRIM_FILM_C
    - add a new header <libplacebo/utils/libav.h>, containing a variety of
      helper functions for interoperating between libav* and libplacebo
    - add `demos/plplay.c` to serve as a demonstration of how to make a
      trivial playback loop with libavcodec and libplacebo
    - add `pl_sample_src.component_mask` to allow sampling an arbitrary
      subset of the available components from a plane
    - add `pl_frame_is_cropped` and `pl_frame_clear` to assist in properly
      clearing frames before rendering to them
    - add `pl_tex_poll` to assist in interoperating with some external APIs
    - add `pl_render_params.blend_params` to allow blending the final output
    
    Changes:
    - remove `pl_image.signature` and `pl_render_params.skip_redraw_caching`
    - change vulkan surface format selection to prioritize formats by
      'score', preferring higher depth integer formats
    - `pl_fmt` may now have PL_FMT_CAP_STORABLE even when `glsl_format` is
      NULL, in which case formatless image storage must be used
    - `pl_buf_read` no longer requires `buf_offset` be a multiple of 4
    - `pl_buf_*` commands are now synchronized internally:
    - `pl_buf_write` and `pl_buf_read` now block while the buffer is in use
      Note: for this reason, `pl_buf_write` should not be used in loops
    - `pl_tex_upload/download` may now be called on in-use buffers
    - allow `pl_dispatch_compute` on shaders with outputs, including the
      ability to automatically determine the number of work groups based on
      the shader output resolution
    - remove `pl_buf_params.type`, and the concept of buffer types in
      general. `pl_buf` is now a generic catch-all for any type of buffer,
      with individual capabilities in `pl_buf_params` determinig what type
      of shader operations it can be used for
    - relax the alignment requirements on `pl_tex_transfer_params`
    - change `pl_opengl_wrap_params` to allow directly importing
      framebuffers in addition to textures
    - rename `pl_color_levels` members for clarity
    - make `pl_opengl` ignore software rasterizers by default, unless the
      new field `pl_opengl_params.allow_software` is set
    - add `pl_av1_grain_params.luma_comp` to allow drawing the luma
      component from a channel with nonzero index
    - `pl_renderer` now supports rendering to planar targets, including
      subsampled targets
    - `pl_image` and `pl_render_target` have been removed and unified into a
      single `pl_frame` concept
    - remove `pl_tex_params.sample_mode/address_mode` and move them to
      `pl_desc_binding` instead, to decouple them from texture creation
    - refactor the signature of `pl_tex_blit`
    
    Fixes and performance improvements:
    - fix an oversight where `pl_buf_destroy` delayed some buffer
      destructions unnecessarily
    - fix a limitation where `pl_tex_destroy` sometimes delayed destroying
      textures unnecessarily
    - improve the performance of `pl_dispatch`'s code for assembling UBOs
    - improve the performance of `pl_shader_av1_grain` by switching from
      SSBOs to texture LUTs, also improving compatibility with older GL
    - improve the performance of `pl_shader_detect_peak` on GPUs with access
      to subgroups operations
    - fix an issue where reinitializing shader state objects with different
      settings sometimes resulted in undefined behaviour
    - fix some GLSL backwards compatibility issues
    - slightly cut down on unnecessary image layout transitions
    - add some miscellaneous debug print-outs, and improve the legibility of
      some existing log messages

    v3.104.0-rc1
    
    This is a major release, introducing many new features and
    modifications. Most importantly, libplacebo now interoperates well with
    FFmpeg's libav* abstractions. This is primarily exposed via a new set of
    helpers, <libplacebo/utils/libav.h>, implemented as a single header
    library. In addition to this, a number of other supporting changes have
    been made to the API, most notably the unification of `pl_image` and
    `pl_render_target` into a single `pl_frame` concept, similar in spirit
    to AVFrame. As such, libplacebo now supports **rendering to planar
    targets**, including subsampled YCbCr.
    
    Besides the libav* compatibility changes, this release also brings with
    it a new feature for custom shaders: buffer blocks, and persistent
    storage. This can be used by third parties to implement stateful shaders
    (e.g. motion interpolation or temporal deinterlacing), or be leveraged
    to speed up some shaders by combining multiple passes into one.
    
    Finally, various import/export procedures have been expanded, including
    the ability to import host pointers and real-world DMABUFs.
    
    Additions:
    - add `pl_memory_qualifiers`, plus a corresponding `pl_shader_desc.memory`,
      to allow attaching GLSL memory qualifiers (coherent, volatile etc.) to
      shader descriptors
    - add functions `pl_dispatch_save` and `pl_dispatch_load` to allow
      saving/restoring the contents of an entire `pl_dispatch`'s cache
    - add functions `pl_renderer_save` and `pl_renderer_load` to allow
      saving/restoring the contents of an entire `pl_renderer`'s cache
    - add `pl_vulkan_swapchain_params.prefer_hdr`, which will cause the
      surface format selection logic to try HDR output formats first
    - add `pl_buf_copy` to copy from one buffer to another
    - add `pl_get_detected_peak`, to read back the result of peak detection
    - add `pl_primaries_superset` to test if one set of primaries is fully
      enclosed by another
    - add `pl_color_map_params.gamut_clipping`, which will colorimetrically
      clip any out-of-gamut colors by desaturating them towards neutral gray
      until they're in-gamut, rather than clipping per channel as before
    - add `PL_GPU_CAP_SUBGROUPS` and `pl_gpu_limits.subgroup_size`, to
      expose GLSL subgroup functionality via the `pl_gpu` interface
    - add `pl_gpu_is_failed`, to query at a high level whether the `pl_gpu`
      is in some internal failure state. GPUs in this state should be
      recreated, using the appropriate mechanism
    - add `pl_shader_custom`, to allow injecting arbitrary custom GLSL code
      into a `pl_shader`.
    - add `pl_buf_params.import_handle` to allow importing buffers
    - add `PL_HANDLE_HOST_POTR`, to allow importing arbitrary host pointers
    - add `pl_pass_run_params.vertex_buf`, to allow drawing vertex data
      directly from a `pl_buf`, guarded by `pl_gpu_limits.max_vbo_size`
    - add `_COUNT` members to all public enums, for consistency
    - add `pl_shared_mem.drm_format_mod`, to allow communicating DRM format
      modifiers when importing/exporting textures
    - add support for importing DMABUFs via EGL, via the new fields
      `pl_opengl_params.egl_display/context`
    - add `pl_fmt.fourcc` to facilitate mapping between `pl_fmt` and DRM
    - add the missing `pl_var_*` helpers, for consistency
    - add `pl_plane_data_align` to help with aligning `pl_plane_data`
      structs to byte boundaries
    - add support for STORAGE textures in user shaders, which can be used to
      persist data across separate invocations of the shader
    - add support for BUFFER blocks in user shaders, which can be used to
      create UBOs or SSBOs for use inside shaders, the latter of which can
      also persist across frames and be used to store persistent state
    - add PL_COLOR_PRIM_EBU_3213 and PL_COLOR_PRIM_FILM_C
    - add a new header <libplacebo/utils/libav.h>, containing a variety of
      helper functions for interoperating between libav* and libplacebo
    - add `demos/plplay.c` to serve as a demonstration of how to make a
      trivial playback loop with libavcodec and libplacebo
    - add `pl_sample_src.component_mask` to allow sampling an arbitrary
      subset of the available components from a plane
    - add `pl_frame_is_cropped` and `pl_frame_clear` to assist in properly
      clearing frames before rendering to them
    - add `pl_tex_poll` to assist in interoperating with some external APIs
    - add `pl_render_params.blend_params` to allow blending the final output
    
    Changes:
    - remove `pl_image.signature` and `pl_render_params.skip_redraw_caching`
    - change vulkan surface format selection to prioritize formats by
      'score', preferring higher depth integer formats
    - `pl_fmt` may now have PL_FMT_CAP_STORABLE even when `glsl_format` is
      NULL, in which case formatless image storage must be used
    - `pl_buf_read` no longer requires `buf_offset` be a multiple of 4
    - `pl_buf_*` commands are now synchronized internally:
    - `pl_buf_write` and `pl_buf_read` now block while the buffer is in use
      Note: for this reason, `pl_buf_write` should not be used in loops
    - `pl_tex_upload/download` may now be called on in-use buffers
    - allow `pl_dispatch_compute` on shaders with outputs, including the
      ability to automatically determine the number of work groups based on
      the shader output resolution
    - remove `pl_buf_params.type`, and the concept of buffer types in
      general. `pl_buf` is now a generic catch-all for any type of buffer,
      with individual capabilities in `pl_buf_params` determinig what type
      of shader operations it can be used for
    - relax the alignment requirements on `pl_tex_transfer_params`
    - change `pl_opengl_wrap_params` to allow directly importing
      framebuffers in addition to textures
    - rename `pl_color_levels` members for clarity
    - make `pl_opengl` ignore software rasterizers by default, unless the
      new field `pl_opengl_params.allow_software` is set
    - add `pl_av1_grain_params.luma_comp` to allow drawing the luma
      component from a channel with nonzero index
    - `pl_renderer` now supports rendering to planar targets, including
      subsampled targets
    - `pl_image` and `pl_render_target` have been removed and unified into a
      single `pl_frame` concept
    - remove `pl_tex_params.sample_mode/address_mode` and move them to
      `pl_desc_binding` instead, to decouple them from texture creation
    - refactor the signature of `pl_tex_blit`
    
    Fixes and performance improvements:
    - fix an oversight where `pl_buf_destroy` delayed some buffer
      destructions unnecessarily
    - fix a limitation where `pl_tex_destroy` sometimes delayed destroying
      textures unnecessarily
    - improve the performance of `pl_dispatch`'s code for assembling UBOs
