Release notes for GStreamer libav Plug-ins 0.11.90 "Nameless here for evermore"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release in the 0.11.x unstable series of the GStreamer libav Plug-ins.

The 0.11.x series is an unstable series targeted at developers and will eventually lead up to the stable 1.0 series. It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.10.x series. It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.10.x series.

This module contains plug-ins using libraries from the libav project.

Other modules containing plug-ins are:

contains a basic set of well-supported plug-ins
contains a set of well-supported plug-ins, but might pose problems for distributors
contains a set of less supported plug-ins that haven't passed the rigorous quality testing we expect
