<title>GStreamer 1.19.2 unstable development release and git monorepo transition</title>
<content>
<p>
<b>GStreamer 1.19.2 unstable development release</b>
</p>
<p>
The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the second development release in
the unstable 1.19 release series.
</p>
<p>
The unstable 1.19 release series adds new features on top of the current
stable 1.18 series and is part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x release series
of the GStreamer multimedia framework.
</p>
<p>
The unstable 1.19 release series is for testing and development purposes in
the lead-up to the stable 1.20 series which is scheduled for release in a
few weeks time. Any newly-added API can still change until that point, although
it is rare for that to happen.
</p>
<p>
Full release notes will be provided in the near future, highlighting all the
new features, bugfixes, performance optimizations and other important changes.
</p>
<p>
This development release is primarily for distributors and early
adaptors and anyone who still needs to update their build/packaging
setup for Meson.
</p>
<p>
Packagers: please note that plugins may have moved between modules, so please
take extra care and make sure inter-module version dependencies are such that
users can only upgrade all modules in one go, instead of seeing a mix of 1.19
and 1.18 on their system. Also, gst-plugins-good 1.19.2 depends on 1.19.2
gst-plugins-base (even if the meson dependency check claims otherwise).
</p>
<p>
Binaries for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows will also be available shortly at the
<a href="https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/pkg/">usual location</a>.

<b>Git monorepo transition</b>
</p>
<p>
Following the 1.19.2 release all git <tt>master</tt> branches in git are now
frozen and will stay frozen. as we embark on some infrastructure
plumbing that will see many of our git modules merged into a mono
repository, which should massively streamline and improve our developer
experience.
</p>
<p>
Expect a few days of disruptions, but we'll do our best to get the show
back on the road as quickly as possible!
</p>
<p>
We'll let you know when it's all done and will post more details and
migration instructions once everything's in place.
</p>
<p>
When we emerge on the other side there will be a shiny new <tt>main</tt> branch
in the GStreamer repository and development will continue there.
</p>
<p>
Nothing will happen to the existing stable branches and repositories,
and the existing master branches will also stay in place for the time
being, but will no longer be updated.
</p>
<p>
There will still be separate release tarballs for the various modules.
</p>
<p>
More details soon, stay tuned.
