Our Illustrious Release Manager is currently travelling back from FISL,
so I'll give a quick outline here, and let him follow up with more
details when he has some time.

There are no API or ABI breaking changes planned in the near future (we
DO regularly add additional API in new point releases, though), so GNOME
needn't worry about any of those sorts of problems.

Of the other areas, there's: bug fixing in gstreamer, and applications.
Bug fixing continues apace, with new bugfix releases planned regularly,
and some significant new internal features coming with those. Those only
matter if specific applications run into bugs, or require new features.
Since we release fairly frequently, I doubt this'll be a problem.

As for applications, I haven't followed the details of the GNOME
applications using gstreamer, but I don't believe there are any
significant stability problems affecting them.

I think the update to latest-gstreamer should be fairly seamless for
gnome 2.16, in short.
