The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the fourth and likely last
bugfix release in the old stable 1.6 release series of your favourite
cross-platform multimedia framework!

This release only contains bugfixes and it should be safe to update
from 1.6.x.

This release maintains API/ABI backwards compatibility with the
GStreamer 1.0, 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 release series.

For details about the GStreamer 1.6 series and the latest version of
this document see the GStreamer 1.6 release page

Bug fix summary:

 - audio parsers: make sure to send tags before pushing the
   first buffer, so all metadata is available at preroll.
   Fixes metadata collection in mopidy with certain FLAC files.

 - fix decoding glitches at the beginning of some mp3
   streams when streaming

 - multiqueue eos handling fixes

 - tcpserversink/multisocketsink: fix 100% cpu usage on
   client disconnect

 - video4linux: colorimetry and colorspace handling fixes

 - udpsrc: add option to enable/disable multicast loopback
   ("loop" property)

 - RTP JPEG: depayloader robustness fixes; payloader now
   accepts different quant tables for the chroma components

 - directsoundsink: fix some issues around muting/unmuting the sound

 - dvdreadsrc: don't jump to wrong title when seeking back to 0
   for titles != 1

 - adaptivedemux: fix race on shutdown that could result in deadlocks
   in hlsdemux/dashdemux, especially when stopped before playback

 - decklink: various robustness fixes in decklinkaudiosrc
   and decklinkvideosrc

 - mpeg4parser: prevent assertion when scanning for sync code

 - fbdevsink: fix crash caused by wrong bpp calculation

 - tsdemux: fix hang in preroll caused by bogus timestamp/wraparound
   handling in some corner cases

 - tsdemux: fix accurating seeking

 - h265parse: fix crash converting from hevc format to
   nal-aligned bytestream

 - h264parse, h265parse: fix handling of downstream force-key-unit

 - g-i annotation fixes for bindings for gst_element_query_convert(),
   gst_pad_get_current_caps(), and gst_pad_peer_query_caps()

 - gst-libav: update internal libav copy to n2.8.6

 - rtsp-server: report RECORD and ANNOUNCE as supported in the OPTIONS

 - rtsp-server: prevent receival of looped back packets on Windows if a
   multicast transport is used

 - fix crashes on newer windows versions when GTypes are passed through
   vararg functions as is done in souphttpsrc or during ges_init().
   This would manifest itself if the application was compiled with MSVC
   and /DYNAMICBASE (address space layout randomization) was used.

 - various minor memory leak fixes

 - miscellaneous other fixes
