GStreamer 0.3.2 "Do-B-day" released
Release Notes
GStreamer "GUADEC By Foot" 0.3.3 released
The GStreamer team is happy to announce another release of the
GStreamer streaming-media framework. GStreamer now contains close to
100 plugins for reading, writing and manipulating audio and video. We
are rapidly approaching a stable set of libraries. Our sample
applications are, however, still under development.
We now have a gst-all module prepared that includes all of our source
modules in one easy-to-compile package.
Future Plans
Our goal for the next release is stabilizing and improving the current
feature set of GStreamer further, including introducing an improved
autoplugger module for even better handling of media formats. We will
also focus more attention at our media player sample application as
this is the application most users and developers probably will use to
get aquinted with the framework.
Preliminary release notes
For help building GStreamer, take a look at our build help document.
The GStreamer team is happy to announce another release of the
GStreamer streaming-media framework. This is our first release using
GLib 2.0 and libxml2 as the sole compile platform. We have also
started including all our documentation in our RPMS starting this
release. People wanting to build GStreamer themselves with
documentation should look at the DOCBUILDING file for some information
on what packages are needed to build that successfully.
Another new feature of this release is the gst-launch-ext command-line
application. It uses predefined pipelines to play back media files
based on their file extension. This means that you don't need to
construct your own pipelines using gst-launch if all you want to do is
play a file. Just type gst-launch-ext [filename] and the audiofile or
movie plays for you. This of course also being a work in progress
means that sometimes it might decide on the wrong pipeline, or cause
jitter, as well as random headaches.
