Some problems will include broken slideshow clips that use a
transition (not just animation), broken title templates that embed
graphics, missing announced new audio effects, and obviously missing
fixes for closed bugs. None of those will cause a fire; however, a big
problem is that there will be major stability issues with the new
scopes, particularly with auto-refresh during playback. This is due to
a race condition with the image format of a frame being converted to
RGBA for the scopes while also attempting to be displayed as YUV.
