Release notes for GStreamer 0.10.24 "It matters"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release in the 0.10.x stable series of the core of the GStreamer streaming media framework.

The 0.10.x series is a stable series targeted at end users. It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.8.x series. It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.8.x series.

The 0.10.x series has been reworked for threadsafety. It also features various feature additions and enhancements.

This module, gstreamer, only contains core functionality. For actual media playback, you will need other modules.

gst-plugins-base
contains a basic set of well-supported plug-ins
gst-plugins-good
contains a set of well-supported plug-ins under our preferred license
gst-plugins-ugly
contains a set of well-supported plug-ins, but might pose problems for distributors
gst-plugins-bad
contains a set of less supported plug-ins that haven't passed the rigorous quality testing we expect

  • Fully support nested structures in caps
  • Support frame-by-frame stepping in sinks
  • Add buffer-lists to pass around groups of buffers
  • Use TaskPools for managing worker threads
