Release notes for GStreamer Validate 1.7.91

The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the second release candidate of the stable 1.8 release series. The 1.8 release series is adding new features on top of the 1.0, 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 series and is part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x release series of the GStreamer multimedia framework.

Binaries for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows will be provided separately during the stable 1.8 release series.

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.

  • 762422 : validate: Fix wrong condition check when adding tests
  • 763602 : validate: Fix overflow seek position comparision
