+- Fix MPEG-TS timestamping regression when playing DVB streams
+- compositor: fix artefacts in certain input scaling/conversion
+ situations and make sure that the output format is actually
+ supported, plus renegotiation fixes
+- Fix sftp:// URI playback in decodebin/playbin via giosrc
+- adaptivedemux/dashdemux/hlsdemux fixes
+- rtsp-server fixes
+- android media: fix crash when encoding AVC
+- fix races in various unit tests

+- various stability, performance and reliability improvements
+- g-i annotation fixes
+- build fixes
+- bin: When removing a sink, check if the EOS status changed
+- info: colorize PIDs in log messages
+- aggregator: Include min-upstream-latency in buffering time, helps
+ especially with performance issues on single core systems where
+ there are a lot of threads running
+- typefind: copy seqnum to new segment event, fixing issues with

+- identity, clocksync: Also provide system clock if sync=false
+- queue2: Fix modes in scheduling query handling
+- harness: Handle element not being set cleanly
+- g-i: Add some missing nullable annotations, and fix some nullable
+ annotations:
+ - gst_test_clock_process_next_clock_id() returns nullable
+ - gst_stream_type_get_name() is not nullable
+- build: fix build issue when compiling for 32-bit architectures with
+ 64-bit time_t (e.g. riscv32) by increasing padding in
+ GstClockEntryImpl in gst_private.h
+- gl/eagl: internal view resize fixes for glimagesink
+- video-converter: increase the number of cache lines for resampling,
+ fixes significant color issues and artefacts with “special” resizing
+ parameters in compositor
+- compositor: Don’t crash in prepare_frame() if the pad was just
+ removed
+- decodebin3: Properly handle caps query with no filter
+- videoaggregator: Guarantee that the output format is supported
+- videoaggregator: Fix locking around vagg->info
+- gluploadelement: Avoid race condition of base class’ context
+- gluploadelement: Avoid race condition of inside upload creation
+- gl: Fix prototype of glGetSynciv()
+- tcpserversink: Don’t assume g_socket_get_remote_address() succeeds
+- video-aggregator: Fix renegotiation when using convert pads
+- videoaggregator: document and fix locking in convert pad
+- audiodecoder, videodecoder: Don’t reset max-errors property value in
+ reset()
+- audioencoder: Fix incorrect GST_LOG_OBJECT usage
+- pbutils: Fix segfault when using invalid encoding profile
+- g-i: videometa: gir annotate the size of plane array in new API
+- examples/gl/gtk: Add missing dependency on gstgl

+- matroska-mux: Fix sparse stream crash
+- Splitmux testsuite races
+- tsparse: timestamp packetized buffers, fixing timestamp handling
+ regression in connection with dvbsrc in MeTV
+- ttmlparse: fix issues in aggregation of input TTML
+- mpegdemux: Set duration on seeking query if possible, fixes seeking
+ in MPEG-PS streams in gst-play-1.0
+- mpegtsdemux: Fix off by one error
+- adaptivedemux: Store QoS values on the element
+- adaptivedemux: Don’t calculate bitrate for header/index fragments
+- hlsdemux: Don’t double-free variant streams on errors
+- mpegtspacketizer: Handle PCR issues with adaptive streams
+- player: call ref_sink on pipeline

+- decklink: correct framerate 2KDCI 23.98
+- amc: Fix crash when encoding AVC
+- d3d11videoprocessor: Fix wrong input/output supportability check
+- opencv: allow compilation against 4.5.x

+- adaptivedemux, hlsdemux, curl: Use actual object for logging
+- gi: player: Fix get_current_subtitle_track() annotation
+- no changes
+- avauddec: Check planar-ness of frame rather than context, fixes
+ issue with aptX HD decoding
+- stream: collect a clock_rate when blocking
+- media: Ignore GstRTSPStreamBlocking from incomplete streams, to
+ prevent cases with prerolling when the inactive stream prerolls
+ first and the server proceeds without waiting for the active stream.
+ When there are no complete streams (during DESCRIBE), we will listen
+ to all streams.
+- media: Use guint64 for setting the size-time property on rtpstorage,
+ fixes potential crashes or memory corruption.
+- media: Get rates only on sender streams, fixing issue with ONVIF
+ audio backchannel streams
