> Hello everyone!
> Just a quick note that after extensive testing and porting, all the

> Meson on all platforms. The only exception is gst-libav-1.0 which
> still uses Autotools, and it is planned to move that to Meson in the
> near future. Some of the major advantages of this move:
> 1. Faster builds on all platforms and toolchains
> 2. Massively faster and more reliable builds on Windows since Meson
> does not use make or shell
> 3. The future ability to build and ship binaries for Windows built
> with Visual Studio, which will allow easier debugging, deployment,
> instrumentation, and so on.
> This is the second step in the project dropping Autotools in favour of
> Meson, the first being gst-build[1], which I hope everyone has been
> trying out! This effort involved changes to the GStreamer meson build
> files, bug fixes and features to the Meson project, and of course
> changes in Cerbero.
