[gst-announce] [gst-devel] RELEASE: GStreamer 0.10.32 "Take Me to the Bonus Level"

This mail announces the release of GStreamer 0.10.32 "Take Me to the Bonus Level".

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 data. 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.

Highlights of this release:

 * New core elements: valve, input-selector, output-selector (moved from -bad)
 * Performance improvements for many heavily-used code paths (making more things lock-free etc.)
 * gobject-introspection annotations for most core API

Release notes for GStreamer 0.10.32 "Take Me to the Bonus Level"

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.

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

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


Features of this release
      * GLib requirement is now >= 2.22
      * New core element: valve (moved from -bad)
      * New core element: input-selector (N.B. without "select-all" property, use fsfunnel instead) (moved from -bad)
      * New core element: output-selector (with different negotiation behaviour by default, set pad-negotiation-mode=active for previous behaviour) (moved from -bad)
      * Performance improvements for many heavily-used code paths: GstPad, GstPoll, GstClock, GstTask, basesink, basesrc, queue2, multiqueue
      * gobject-introspection: add annotations for most core API
      * clock: make sync clock wait lockfree
      * fdsrc/fdsink: reenable on MSVC
      * registry: fix GStatBuf definition for win32 when building against older glib (fixes unnecessary rescanning of plugins at start-up)
      * element: add a more flexible way to get request pads from elements
      * multiqueue: return upon input when already eos
      * object: fix creation of default name (when creating more than 100000 elements)
      * pluginloader: fix hangs on OSX
      * poll: fixes for (p)select backend (used e.g. on OSX)
      * poll: refactor and make more lockfree; fixes for win32 and OSX (pselect backend)
      * registry: don't replace valid existing plugins by blacklisted ones
      * tags: don't produce duplicated entries when merging same value twice
      * basesink: preroll fixes for async=false case
      * basesink: rework position reporting code
      * basetransform: handle downstream giving a buffer with new caps but invalid size
