The GStreamer team is pleased to announce a bugfix release of the stable
1.4 release series. The 1.4 release series is adding new features on top
of the 1.2 series and is part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x release
series of the GStreamer multimedia framework that contains new features.
The 1.4.x bugfix releases only contain important bugfixes compared to 1.4.0.

Binaries for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows are provided by the
GStreamer project for this release.
The Android binaries are now built with the r10c NDK and as such binary
compatible again with all NDK and Android releases. Additionally now
binaries for Android ARMv7 and Android X86 are provided.
This binary release features the first 1.4 releases of GNonLin and
the GStreamer Editing Services.

The 1.x series is a stable series targeted at end users. It is not API
or ABI compatible with the 0.10.x series. It can, however, be installed
in parallel with the 0.10.x series and will not affect an existing
0.10.x installation.

The stable 1.4.x release series is API and ABI compatible with 1.0.x and
any other 1.x release series in the future. Compared to 1.0.x it contains
some new features and more intrusive changes that were considered too
risky as a bugfix.

Bug reports fixed in this release:

      * 737761 : aacparse: memory leak when converting to adts
      * 737771 : souphttpclientsink: Stream header buffer lifetime assumptions are incorrect
      * 737886 : equalizer: crash when changing equalizer settings during playback
      * 738102 : v4l2bufferpool: cleanly handle streamon failure for output device
      * 738152 : v4l2sink: leak with output device
      * 738297 : DTMF telephone-event timestamps are bogus
      * 738722 : rtpmux returns EMPTY caps when query'ing
      * 738793 : speex: encoder/decoder segfault when resetting multiple times

GStreamer Plugins Bad:
      * 732239 : h264parse: expose parsed profiles to downstream
      * 733510 : gltransformation produced black screen
      * 734156 : androidmedia: doesn't calculate framesize for COLOR_FormatYUV420Planar correctly
      * 736319 : dashdemux: mark first buffer as discont after restarting a download task
      * 737186 : h264parse: Return flushing if we get chained while being set to READY

      * 737658 : fluiddec: segmentation fault when used with fakesrc
      * 737724 : vc1parse: unref caps when it is empty in renegotiate()
      * 738067 : gl: Downloading YUY2 is broken and creates blocky artefacts
      * 738223 : fluiddec: leaks memory in gst_fluid_dec_change_state()
      * 738230 : vc1parser: fix level value for simple/main profile
      * 738243 : vc1parse: fix framesize when input is frame-layer
      * 738291 : fluiddec: leaks incoming caps event
      * 738449 : vc1parse: just assume none header-format when no codec_data is present
      * 738519 : vc1parse: parse frame header when stream format is ASF/raw for simple/main profile
      * 738532 : vc1parse: select caps according to wmv format at negotiation
      * 738674 : rtmpsink: leaking URI string
      * 738695 : mpegtsbase: do not remove programs on EOS
      * 738696 : hlsdemux: send missing stream start
