News - Orc 0.4.38 bug-fix release

The GStreamer team is pleased to announce another release of liborc, the Optimized Inner Loop Runtime Compiler, which is used for SIMD acceleration in GStreamer plugins such as audioconvert, audiomixer, compositor, videoscale, and videoconvert, to name just a few.

This is a minor bug-fix release which fixes an issue on x86 architectures with hardened Linux kernels.


  • x86: account for XSAVE when checking for AVX support, fixing usage on hardened linux kernels where AVX support has been disabled
  • neon: Use the real intrinsics for divf and sqrtf
  • orc.m4 for autotools is no longer shipped. If anyone still uses it they can copy it into their source tree

Direct tarball download: orc-0.4.38.tar.xz.

What is GStreamer?

GStreamer is a library for constructing graphs of media-handling components. The applications it supports range from simple Ogg/Vorbis playback, audio/video streaming to complex audio (mixing) and video (non-linear editing) processing.

Applications can take advantage of advances in codec and filter technology transparently. Developers can add new codecs and filters by writing a simple plugin with a clean, generic interface. Read more ...

GStreamer is released under the LGPL. The 1.x series is API and ABI stable and supersedes the previous stable 0.10 series. Both can be installed in parallel.
