Hi everybody,

just a short announcement to make everybody aware of the removal of
eglglessink and libgstegl from gst-plugins-bad. This was the video sink
that was previously used on Android, iOS, Raspberry Pi and others.

The replacement is the glimagesink element, which is also in
gst-plugins-bad, and provides the same features (and more) and is also
supported on all platforms. glimagesink also comes together with
libgstgl, a library that contains all the infrastructure to handle
OpenGL/GLES withing GStreamer.

If you were using eglglessink before, or were displaying video on
Android, iOS or the Raspberry Pi, please test glimagesink from
gst-plugins-bad git master and report any issues you find. 1.4 will be
released without eglglessink.

On a related note, glimagesink also has a higher rank than osxvideosink
and will be used instead of osxvideosink on OSX if available. This
should notably improve the video rendering experience on OSX.

Best regards,
