core of the GStreamer streaming media framework.

The 0.9.x series is a development series and not recommended for end users.
It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.8.x series.
It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.8.x series.

The main focus of the 0.9 series is to make GStreamer threadsafe.

This module, gstreamer, only contains core functionality.
For actual media playback, you will need other modules.

Support and Bugs

We use GNOME's bugzilla for bug reports and feature requests:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=GStreamer

Developers

CVS is hosted on cvs.freedesktop.org.
All code is in CVS and can be checked out from there.
Interested developers of the core library, plug-ins, and applications should
subscribe to the gstreamer-devel list. If there is sufficient interest we
will create more lists as necessary.

        
Applications

At this point, ports of existing applications to 0.9 are still experimental.
A patch for Totem is maintained at

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=313086.
A patch for Rhythmbox is maintained at

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=309609.
Jamboree has a branch with the tag "jamboree-gst-0.9" that works against
GStreamer 0.9.
Flumotion has been mostly ported to 0.9 as well.
