GStreamer 'do-b-day' 0.3.2 released

GStreamer "do-b-day" 0.3.2 released

The GStreamer team is happy to announce another release of the GStreamer
streaming-media framework. This is our first release using Glib 2.0 and
libxml2 as our default compile plattform. Support for gtk1.2 is still
available with the -disable-glib2 configure parameter. This will however
be the last release with support for compilation with GTK1.2 as keeping
compatible with both set of libraries is getting to be a hinderance for
keeping our high development speed.

We now have a gst-all module prepared that includes all of our source
modules in one easy-to-compile package.

Some Important Known Bugs:

    * 	When installing you might get a error saying that warning:
	failed to load external entity "/etc/gstreamer/reg.xml". This can 	be
safely ignored. Just run gst-register after you are done.
    * 	If you have the mad plugin installed you will not get sound on
	.vob files.
    * 	AVI playback is not working in this release. Anyone thinking
	Avifile is a great library are kindly requested to help out.

More details on these features can be found, along with the release
tarballs and some RPMs, on the project's website,

GStreamer is hosted on SourceForge, so support requests and bugs may be
filed as usual. Interested developers of the core library, plugins, and
applications should subscribe to the gstreamer-devel list. If there is
sufficient interest we will create more lists as necessary.

We are still looking for people with access to Solaris, HP-UX, Irix and
True64 that would be willing to try building and testing GStreamer.
Patches fixing such problems are also more than welcome.
