GStreamer 1.0 Is Coming; Here's The Plans

For those interested in GStreamer, the open-source multimedia framework commonly used by the GNOME desktop, is slowly working its way towards doing a 1.0 release.

As pointed out by Christian Schaller on his blog, a path has been laid leading to GStreamer 1.0. This is coming as Wim Taymans issued a second status update on GStreamer 0.11. The first GStreamer 0.11 release is expected this week and incorporates all of the features they've been talking about since last year's developers conference.
What's next
-----------

Almost all of the features laid out in the GStreamer conference last year are now implemented. We also have quite a few new cool features that slipped in. Things are shaping up indeed.

The last big missing piece is the redesign of the caps fields for raw audio and video. We plan to finish that in the next weeks.

There are also a few smaller things we would like to do: use GstQuery for the various caps functions, do GstFlowReturn for the query/event functions, ...

Meanwhile we start the stabilisation phase and we will do a first prerelease of 0.11 this week to bring things to a wider audience. Now is the time to catch up and start porting your plugins to 0.11!

There is still a lot of work to be done to port plugins to 0.11 before we can release 1.0. I ask everyone again (and especially maintainers) to help us porting plugins, it's really a lot of work!

There's also the previous 0.11 status update for those interested. More information on the GStreamer 1.0 plans can be found on FreeDesktop.org.
