## What's new in Siril 0.9.6

Siril 0.9.6 is mostly a stability release, it contains some bug fixes over to the previous version, 0.9.5 but also adds new features:

• Fixed compilation that failed on KFreeBSD
• Photometry improvement

Note: support for films such as AVI has been dropped and many functions of Siril will not work for them, in favour of the SER format. This version of Siril provides a way to convert films into SER sequences, on which all Siril processing functions are supported.
