Re: [gst-devel] GStreamer in GNOME 2.16

As Mike mentioned in another mail I don't think there are anything major
affecting current applications apart from continuing improvements in
plugins and addition of more plugins to support more formats, protocols
and so on.

I think the most major planned changed is the USB device handling stuff
that Jurg has been working on:

The GStreamer parts of this are already merged for some time, but we are
still waiting on the control-center part to get merged.

There are some bigger projects planned, such as a rewrite of our
decodebin plug-in used by almost all GStreamer using playback
applications, but there should be no impact of this on applications or
GNOME apart from more things working/being possible.

I think for playback we are in a polish mode currently with almost all
the plugins we really need already there. A lot of the development focus
now is on enabling new non-playback applications like Pitivi, Diva,
Thoggen, Jokosher and Buzztard, Tapioca and Telepathy.

I doubt any of these applications will be ready for being proposed for
2.16, but at least some of them would be ready in the 2.16 timeframe.
