This mail announces the release of GStreamer 0.10.12 'Inevitable Demise'.

GStreamer is a streaming media framework that allows the construction of
graphs of elements which operate on media data.
Applications using this library can do anything from real-time sound processing
over playing video to capturing audio, video, and even other types of media
Its architecture allows for adding new data types or processing capabilities
simply by installing new plug-ins.
GStreamer is the core module, containing libraries, headers, the basic object
hierarchy, and a set of media-agnostic core elements.
For more information, see http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/modules/gstreamer.html

Release notes for GStreamer 0.10.12 "Inevitable Demise"

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.
