Would be nice if you already now could test against 2616, which contains some 
fixes for kdenlive 0.5 loading (if you did not already test).

Titles is a missing feature, but it would be great to know what more that does 
not work.

I would be interessted in your feedback and findings. Also, I have personally 
tried this approach (but you should feel free to try others):

- start kdenlive 0.7
- load kdenlive 0.5 project
- save project to new filename (new.kdenlive)
- restart kdenlive 0.7
- load just saved project (new.kdenlive)
- play around.

I am very happy to hear that others are interessted in trying to improve this. 
I am almost certain that we can not fix everything - I am unsure how to fix a 
number of effects, but we can try to get as much as possibly to work before

I think that there are no forces on this planet more dangerous to us all
than the fanaticisms of fundamentalism, of all the species: Protestantism,
Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, as well as countless
smaller infections. Is there a conflict between science and religion here?
There most certainly is.
