Hi team,
We have decided that it is the time for a new release has arrived to get
the latest and greatest fixes out to the starving children of the world.

Planned time of release is the weekend 2-3 November, which gives us
approx 10 days to get fixes in.

Some selling points for this release is planned to the working mpeg
muxer, working avimuxer, new asf demuxer, wavencoder, shoutcast2 plugin,
license field, built and shipped snapshot and rtp plugin. I also think
we should package the flash plugin for this release.

Maybe the new video editing plugins that Wim has made should be included
in the build for this release too?

Anyway as usual we should try and slim down the number of bugs in
bugzilla. And also as usual we need as many as possible to help out with
this. I will here give a short overview of the major bugs in bugzilla.
There are others which would also be very cool to fix, but I think these
are the ones either being 'critical' or being simple to fix.

0.4.2 bugs that we should try hard to fix:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87882 <- state change in
top-level thread not passed down to child bin

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89836 <-
gst_element_(s|g)et_name are redundant (fix need to be agreed upon?)
