GStreamer 0.8.6 "Narc" released

Release notes for GStreamer 0.8.6 "Narc"

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.
