Release notes for GStreamer Ugly Plugins 1.6.4
The GStreamer team is pleased to announce a new bug-fix release in the old 1.6 stable series of the core of the GStreamer streaming media framework.
This release only contains bugfixes and it should be safe to update from 1.6.x. For a full list of bugfixes see Bugzilla.
This release maintains API/ABI backwards compatibility with the GStreamer 1.0, 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 release series.
"When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk."
There are times when the world needs a color between black and white. Quality code to match the good's, but two-timing, backstabbing and ready to sell your freedom down the river. These plugins might have a patent noose around their neck, or a lock-up license, or any other problem that makes you think twice about shipping them.
We don't call them ugly because we like them less. Does a mother love her son less because he's not as pretty as the other ones ? No - she commends him on his great personality. These plugins are the life of the party. And we'll still step in and set them straight if you report any unacceptable behaviour - because there are two kinds of people in the world, my friend: those with a rope around their neck and the people who do the cutting.
This module contains a set of plugins that have good quality and correct functionality, but distributing them might pose problems. The license on either the plugins or the supporting libraries might not be how we'd like. The code might be widely known to present patent problems. Distributors should check if they want/can ship these plugins.
