Version 19.12 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

This version makes the Timeline much more flexible. Previously, you could
only move a clip to a blank spot on the timeline, or the move operation would be
rejected and the clip would snap back to its original location. This is no
longer restricted, and you can move anywhere as if you were inserting or
overwriting with a new clip. Of course, you need to be more careful now! Also,
when using drag-n-drop to make a transition, previously you could not have a gap
in the timeline between the two clips. Now, you can drag over a gap and overlap
the clips to make the transition (but still only for neighboring clips on the
same track, by design.) These two improvements were needed to support the
ability to move multiple clips at once. We expect to include that in the first
version of 2020. Meanwhile, there were some important fixes to get out and
changes for people to adjust to.

    undoLimit that defaults to 1000.
