Hi there,

I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of Boxtream v0.996

Boxtream is both an audio and video encoder and streamer and an 
assembly of audio and video hardware, forming a mobile video 
streaming studio. It is designed to easily record and stream live 
presentations including a presenter and synchronized slides, or 
slides only, or presenter only, and was built to stream live courses 
over the Internet for distance learning students. It supports and 
autodetects several brands and models of video switchers. It can be 
entirely controlled remotely over XML-RPC, and includes an X11 
interface built with wxWidgets. 

This release is the very first one where the minimal hardware 
requirement is a single firewire device (e.g. a simple camcorder), 
making third party uses and contributions possible even from people 
without expensive hardware, which unfortunately wasn't the case before.

The Boxtream software is written in Python and makes heavy use
of GStreamer and wxWidgets, it is distributed under the terms of
the GNU General Public License of the Free Software Foundation.
