The GStreamer team is thrilled to announce a new major feature release
of your favourite cross-platform multimedia framework!

As always, this release is again packed with new features, bug fixes

The 1.16 release series adds new features on top of the 1.14 series and
is part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x release series of the GStreamer
multimedia framework.


- GStreamer WebRTC stack gained support for data channels for
  peer-to-peer communication based on SCTP, BUNDLE support, as
  well as support for multiple TURN servers.

- AV1 video codec support for Matroska and QuickTime/MP4
  containers and more configuration options and supported input
  formats for the AOMedia AV1 encoder

- Support for Closed Captions and other Ancillary Data in video

- Support for planar (non-interleaved) raw audio

- GstVideoAggregator, compositor and OpenGL mixer elements are
  now in gst-plugins-base

- New alternate fields interlace mode where each buffer carries
  a single field

- WebM and Matroska ContentEncryption support in the Matroska demuxer

- new WebKit WPE-based web browser source element

- Video4Linux: HEVC encoding and decoding, JPEG encoding, and
  improved dmabuf import/export

- Hardware-accelerated Nvidia video decoder gained support
  for VP8/VP9 decoding, whilst the encoder gained support
  for H.265/HEVC encoding.

- Many improvements to the Intel Media SDK based hardware-accelerated
  video decoder and encoder plugin (msdk): dmabuf import/export for
  zero-copy integration with other components; VP9 decoding; 10-bit
  HEVC encoding; video post-processing (vpp) support including
  deinterlacing; and the video decoder now handles dynamic resolution

- The ASS/SSA subtitle overlay renderer can now handle multiple
  subtitles that overlap in time and will show them on screen

  plugin docs) and it is now the recommended build system on all
  platforms. The Autotools build is scheduled to be removed in
  the next cycle.

- The GStreamer Rust bindings and Rust plugins module are now
  officially part of upstream GStreamer.

- The GStreamer Editing Services gained a gesdemux element that
  allows directly playing back serialized edit list with playbin
  or (uri)decodebin
