Release notes for GStreamer Validate 1.3.90

The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of the stable 1.4 release series of GstValidate, a high level integration testing infrastructure for the GStreamer framework.

This release candidate will hopefully shortly be followed by the stable 1.4.0 release if no bigger regressions or bigger issues are detected, and enough testing of the release candidate happened.

This module contains a whole testing infrastructure to help GStreamer developers to validate their elements, check the interaction between their element and the others.

It allows to easily implement high level integration testsuite running scenarios on gstreamer pipeline checking that each element in the pipeline is behaving as expected.

GstValidate also provide a default testsuite so that third party developers can test and validate their elements, this testsuite is also running on an integration server so that the upstream GStreamer project can detect any regression.
