GStreamer Conference 2012: ALSA, OpenGL, Wayland
Here's links to the Phoronix coverage from the two-day event that happened in San Diego:
- GStreamer 1.0 Is Looking To Finally Be Released Soon: The big "1.0 release" of GStreamer is coming soon, possibly before GNOME 3.6.
- Video 4 Linux 2 (V4L2) Continues With New Features: Lots of good stuff is happening within the Linux kernel's V4L2 sub-system.
- GStreamer 0.10 Is Dead, But 1.0 Has Lots Of Good Stuff: GStreamer 1.0 packs tons of new features for the multimedia framework/library while the current GStreamer 0.10 stable series is basically at an end.
- TI Shows Off Impressive, Experimental Wayland Demo: Wayland with the Weston compositor and shell running on low-powered ARM hardware thanks to shader improvements. Video playback also works.
Extending DRI2 For Video Handling Still Desired: DRI2Video may still come, if Wayland adoption doesn't explode too soon. DRI2Video basically builds upon X-Video and DRI2 to offer better and more efficient video playback capabilities.
- Wayland 1.0 Coming "In A Month Or Two": Lots of exciting stuff happening in the Wayland camp!
- Intel Aims To Hit On Performance, Plans LLVM Compiler: Intel has some ambitious plans to speed up their Intel Mesa graphics driver as well as improving the open-source OpenGL support under Linux.
- Valve Finds Value In Open-Source Drivers; L4D2 Running On Mesa: Enough said, read the article!
- ALSA: Audio Compression Offloading, Power Savings: Lots of good stuff is happening within the Linux kernel for new audio driver features and capabilities.
- Tear-Free, Hardware-Accelerated Video On Wayland: VA-API now works on Wayland with Intel hardware.
