The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the first development release
in the unstable 1.17 release series.

The unstable 1.17 release series adds new features on top of the
current stable 1.16 series and is part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x
release series of the GStreamer multimedia framework.

The unstable 1.17 release series is for testing and development
purposes in the lead-up to the stable 1.18 series which is scheduled
for release in a few weeks time. Any newly-added API can still change
until that point, although it is rare for that to happen.

Draft release notes highlighting all the new features, bugfixes,
performance optimisations and other important changes in the 1.17/1.18
are still being prepared and will be made available in due course.

The autotools build has been dropped entirely for this release, so it's
finally all Meson from here on.

This development release is primarily for distributors and early
adaptors and anyone who still needs to update their build/packaging
setup for Meson.

On the documentation front we have switched away from gtk-doc to
hotdoc, but we now provide a release tarball of the built documentation
in html and devhelp format, and we recommend distributors switch to
that and provide a single gstreamer documentation package in future.

Instead of a gst-validate tarball we now ship a gst-devtools tarball.

Binary packages for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows will be provided
in the next few days.

The rough plan going forward is probably another development release in
1-2 weeks time, and then feature freeze and a first 1.18 pre-release
around the first week of July or so. Then hopefully we can get 1.18 out
sometime later that month.

As always, please let us know of any issues you run into by filing a
bug in Gitlab:
