Release notes for GStreamer Base Plug-ins 0.10.32 "Your Life You Like It Well"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release
in the 0.10.x stable series of the
GStreamer Base Plug-ins.

The 0.10.x series is a stable series targeted at end users.

This module contains a set of reference plugins, base classes for other
plugins, and helper libraries.

This module is kept up-to-date together with the core developments.  Element
writers should look at the elements in this module as a reference for
their development.

This module contains elements for, among others:

  device plugins: x(v)imagesink, alsa, v4lsrc, cdparanoia
  containers: ogg
  codecs: vorbis, theora
  text: textoverlay, subparse
  sources: audiotestsrc, videotestsrc, gnomevfssrc, giosrc
  network: tcp
  typefind functions
  audio processing: audioconvert, adder, audiorate, audioresample, volume
  visualisation: libvisual
  video processing: ffmpegcolorspace
  aggregate elements: uridecodebin, playbin2, decodebin2, decodebin, playbin, encodebin
  libraries: app, audio, cdda, fft, interfaces, netbuffer, pbutils, riff, rtp, rtsp, sdp, tag, video

Other modules containing plug-ins are:

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, gobject-introspection >= 0.9.12
      * New encodebin element
      * New encoding profile and encoding targets API in pbutils
      * audioresample: corrected buffer duration calculation to account for nonzero initial timestamp
      * audioresample: provide as much valid output ts and offset as valid input
      * audioresample: push half a history length, instead of a full history length, at end-of-stream so that output segment and input segment have same duration
      * decodebin2: deprecate new-decoded-pad and removed-decoded-pad signals (use "pad-added" and "pad-removed" instead)
      * multifdsink: add first and last buffer's timestamp to the stats; only keep last valid timestamp
      * oggdemux: extract more tags (vorbis comment headers, Kate)
      * oggdemux: ignore header pages when looking for keyframe; set headers on caps
      * oggdemux: fix interpretation of Theora granule position and parsing of Theora size
      * oggparse: Set DELTA_UNIT on buffers
      * playbin2: delay stream-changed messages, fixing KATE subtitle recognition
      * textoverlay: make text, xpos, ypos, color, and silent properties controllable
      * typefinding: (E)AC-3 and ISO typefinder improvements; add yuv4mpeg typefinder
      * typefinding: add "stream-format" to h264 caps, and framed=false to DTS caps
      * typefinding: assume EBML files without doctype are matroska
      * videorate: fix behaviour for frame rate cap changes
      * vorbisdec: avoid using invalid timestamps; keep timestamps when no decoded output
      * ximagesink, xvimagesink: add read-only window-width and window-height properties
      * baseaudiopay: fix timestamps on buffer lists
      * baseaudiosink: protect against ringbuffer disappearing while in a query
      * basedepay: add support for buffer lists in the depayloader
      * basertppay: use RTP base time when invalid timestamps
      * rtpbuffer: relax arrangement for RTP bufferlists
      * rtpdepayloader: add support for getting events
      * rtppayload: copy applied rate to segment
      * sdp: add method to check for multicast addresses
      * sdp: only parse TTL for IP4 addresses
      * video: add 8-bit paletted RGB, YUV9, YVU9 and IYU1 video formats
      * video: return correct component width/height for A420
