GStreamer 1.10 is now available as the latest significant update to this leading open-source multimedia framework.

Changes for GStreamer 1.10 that excite us include OpenGL and OpenGL ES fixes/improvements for greater efficiency affecting both desktop and mobile systems. Also exciting is GStreamer now supports Vulkan on Wayland.

Other work making us excited about GStreamer 1.10 include VA-API plug-in improvements, Bluetooth enhancements, V4L2 improvements, better echo cancellation, and it also brings experimental support for the Meson build system that's also begun to be used by other GNOME components too.

For developers making use of GStreamer there are a number of API additions, experimental decodebin3/playbin3 elements, a new parsebin element, a new gst-examples module to contain various demos/examples, and more.
