[gst-devel] small API/ABI breakage

Hi all,

apparently between 0.8.1 and 0.8.2 of core GST_CAT_DATAFLOW was removed,
which is used by the switch element in 0.8.1 plugins.

This is a very small, but still a, breakage of ABI, which we'll have to
be more careful about in the future.

There are two possible routes we can take:
a) make a possibly hasty 0.8.2 plugins release
b) make a quick 0.8.3 core release that puts this back

In the future, a possibility for when we want to remove stuff from the
API/ABI, we should probably mark them as Benjamin has did in a number of
places with FIXME: remove in 0.9 so we can make those changes as soon as
0.9 starts.

What do you think ?
