I don't know about the version number, but I think the only crucial feature
for our next release is that it compiles and installs out of the box, and
there is a simple application that does something useful to show off what
the system can do.
Admittedly this isn't a very high standard (should probably be
0.9.9-alpha1), but its better than the current release (year old, doesn't
compile on my box), and would enable us to begin working out how to do
releases and work the wrinkles out of that process.
We've got the compile and install bit done. The only problem is the simple
application - gstplay is the right kind of thing, but is a bit to flaky and
hacky even for my standards.
Before we go to something we're going to call a beta release we should have
a pretty much stable API - we shouldn't be planning any major changes which
will break source compatibility with people's applications. I've no idea
whether this is the situation we're currently in... ?

Oh - we should fix it on PowerPC (currently there looks to be an endianness
confusion making everything sound like white noise, and video can't be
displayed), but that's down to Chris and myself, and anyone else who has a
PPC available, and shouldn't affect a release. ;-)

.debs would be nice too. I could do with learning how to make these for
work, so this task could be allocated to me.
Do we have a task manager somewhere which we should be using to allocate
and keep track of responsibilities?
