This mail announces the release of gstreamer core and gst-plugins-base
0.11.99 and gst-plugins-good/bad/ugly and gst-libav 0.11.99 modules of
our API unstable 0.11.x development series leading to GStreamer 1.0.
We expect this to be the last pre-release before 1.0.0 (due next weekend).
The "unstable API" guards have been removed. There are still bugs of
course, and we'll continue to add obvious bug-fixes before the final 1.0.
These releases are intended for developers wanting to port their
plugins and applications to the new series, and users who want to help
test the bleeding edge of GStreamer development and ported
This release is not API or ABI compatible with previous 0.11.x releases
or with the 0.10.x series.
It can be installed in parallel with the 0.10.x series and will not
affect an existing 0.10.x installation.
There have been a number of smaller API changes since the last release,
mostly in low-level API and plugin API, but there are also some changes
that may affect applications. These should be fairly minor though. See
below for the most noteworthy changes.
Release tarballs can be downloaded directly from:
Small selection of possibly noteworthy changes:
- pad link/unlink function API change
(we pass the parent object as additional
argument now like we do for all other pad
- appsink: propagate flow returns

changed encoder properties/API!!!)
- dvd fixes
- h264 parser fixes
