Sebastian Dröge has announced the immediate release of the GStreamer 1.4 stable series that adds on new features over the existing GStreamer 1.x stable branches while still keeping up to its promise of 1.x API/ABI stability.

GStreamer 1.4 adds API support for raw/tiled video formats, there's OpenGL improvements for using GL inside the GStreamer pipeline, and there's numerous other additions at the API level. A new element to GStreamer 1.4 is v4l2videodec that is able to access hardware codecs on platforms where exposed via Video 4 Linux 2 (such as with the Samsung Exynos SoC), a new download buffer element, a new OpenNI2 plug-in for 3D cameras like the Kinect, OpenEXR plug-in for decoding HDR EXR images, and OpenJPEG now supports the OpenJPEG2 API. There's tons of other changes also throughout GStreamer Core, its plug-ins, and the RTSP server.

GStreamer 1.4 is the release talked about that makes OpenGL a first class citizen with now being able to properly use GL within GStreamer's video pipeline. There's also other prominent improvements documented a few months back on Phoronix albeit there isn't yet the DRM and Blu-ray support.

Find out more about the GStreamer 1.4 release via the announcement issued on the project's announce list.
