GStreamer 1.4 will be packing new end-user features when it's introduced next year. Landing in Git already for the GStreamer 1.3 development series are already a few exciting additions.

A new blog post by GNOME's Sebastian Dröge lays out some of the new GStramer plug-ins already for GStreamer 1.3/1.4 and can be found right now in GStreamer's Git:

- Support for 3D sensors via the OpenNI2 API, which supports the Microsoft Xbox Kinect camera and other advanced cameras that provide depth information via a separate channel. The GStreamer OpenNI2 support has landed in the gst-plugins-bad repository.

- RTP support over a TCP connection, based on the IETF RFC4571 proposal, "Framing Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) and RTP Control Protocol (RTCP) Packets over Connection-Oriented Transport". RTP over TCP landed inside gst-plugins-good.

- An OpenEXR decoder plug-in has landed inside gst-plugins-bad. OpenEXR is an HDR image format but for the moment there is no HDR-compatible raw video format support within GStreamer, but that will eventually change.
