GStreamer: Release notes for GStreamer�0.8.8 "I'll Take Care Of You"

The GStreamer team is happy to announce a new release
in the 0.8.x stable series of the GStreamer streaming-media framework.

The 0.8.x series is a stable series aimed at end users.
It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.6.x series.
It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.6.x series.

This module only contains core functionality.  For actual media playback,
you will need other modules.  GStreamer Plugins contains a huge set of
additional plugins.  GStreamer FFmpeg contains a plugin based on the popular
FFmpeg decoding library.  These modules need not have the same source version
as the core, as long as they are in the 0.8.x series.

Features of this release
      * Parallel installability with 0.6.x series
      * Internationalization
      * Threading fixes
      * Opt scheduler fixes
      * Documentation updates
      * New translation: Norwegian Bokmaal (Kjartan Maraas)
      * New translation: Italian (Luca Ferretti)
