Release notes for GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.15 "I've been up all night"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release in the 0.10.x stable series of the GStreamer Good Plug-ins.

The 0.10.x series is a stable series targeted at 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.

"Such ingratitude. After all the times I've saved your life."

A collection of plug-ins you'd want to have right next to you on the battlefield. Shooting sharp and making no mistakes, these plug-ins have it all: good looks, good code, and good licensing. Documented and dressed up in tests. If you're looking for a role model to base your own plug-in on, here it is.

If you find a plot hole or a badly lip-synced line of code in them, let us know - it is a matter of honour for us to ensure Blondie doesn't look like he's been walking 100 miles through the desert without water.

This module contains a set of plug-ins that we consider to have good quality code, correct functionality, our preferred license (LGPL for the plug-in code, LGPL or LGPL-compatible for the supporting library). We believe distributors can safely ship these plug-ins. People writing elements should base their code on these elements.

Other modules containing plug-ins are:

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