Release notes for GStreamer 1.11.2

The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the second release of the unstable 1.11 release series. The 1.11 release series is adding new features on top of the 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 and 1.10 series and is part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x release series of the GStreamer multimedia framework. The unstable 1.11 release series will lead to the stable 1.12 release series in the next weeks. Any newly added API can still change until that point.

Full release notes will be provided at some point during the 1.11 release cycle, highlighting all the new features, bugfixes, performance optimizations and other important changes.

Binaries for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows will be provided in the next days.
