        If you want to know what has been in development since the 1.14 release, the presentations from last years GStreamer conference are great.

          For those looking for a gstreamer build that has as many plugins as possible enabled (in many distributions, many of them are not available), I've been working on a rework of how gstreamer is built in Nix (which you can use on any distro), which will be merged quickly after 1.16 is released:

          https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/54398

          The switch to Meson helped a lot with that; quoting:

          To ease maintainability and to ensure users will find the expected features available (and when not, will see in the nix file why not), we now pass the `-Dauto_features=enabled` Meson build flag to all gstreamer builds, which sets all `auto` dependencies to `enabled`, and we explicitly disable those that we can't build .
          This is in contrast to autoconf, where you can't easily do that (to my knowledge).

            I suspect the Meson haters are going to prove you wrong

              I'd find that cool, because then the packager life could be improved quite a bit.
