Release notes for GStreamer FFmpeg Plug-ins 0.10.11 "Feeding trolls is strictly forbidden"

Other modules containing plug-ins are:

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
