-## Major new features and changes
-### Noteworthy new API, features and other changes
-- New GstVideoAffineTransformationMeta meta for adding a simple 4x4 affine
- transformation matrix to video buffers
- support for all types is exposed in GStreamer headers now, in combination
- with a sufficiently-new GLib version (i.e. 2.44 or later). This is primarily
- for the benefit of application developers who would like to make use of
- this, the GStreamer codebase itself will not be using g_autoptr() for
- the time being due to portability issues.
-- GstContexts are now automatically propagated to elements added to a bin
- or pipeline, and elements now maintain a list of contexts set on them.
- The list of contexts set on an element can now be queried using the new functions
- and [gst\_element\_get\_contexts()](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gstreamer/html/GstElement.html#gst-element-get-contexts). GstContexts are used to share context-specific configuration objects
- between elements and can also be used by applications to set context-specific
- configuration objects on elements, e.g. for OpenGL or Hardware-accelerated
- video decoding.
-- New [GST\_BUFFER\_DTS\_OR\_PTS()](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gstreamer/html/GstBuffer.html#GST-BUFFER-DTS-OR-PTS:CAPS)
- convenience macro that returns the decode timestamp if one is set and
- otherwise returns the presentation timestamp
-- New GstPadEventFullFunc that returns a GstFlowReturn instead of a gboolean.
- This new API is mostly for internal use and was added to fix a race condition
- where occasionally internal flow error messages were posted on the bus when
- sticky events were propagated at just the wrong moment whilst the pipeline
- was shutting down. This happened primarily when the pipeline was shut down
- immediately after starting it up. GStreamer would not know that the reason
- the events could not be propagated was because the pipeline was shutting down
- and not some other problem, and now the flow error allows GStreamer to know
- the reason for the failure (and that there's no reason to post an error
- message). This is particularly useful for queue-like elements which may need
- to asynchronously propagate a previous flow return from downstream.
-- Pipeline dumps in form of "dot files" now also show pad properties that
- differ from their default value, the same as it does for elements. This is
- useful for elements with pad subclasses that provide additional properties,
- e.g. videomixer or compositor.
-- Pad probes are now guaranteed to be called in the order they were added
- (before they were called in reverse order, but no particular order was
- documented or guaranteed)
-- Plugins can now have dependencies on device nodes (not just regular files)
- and also have a prefix filter. This is useful for plugins that expose
- features (elements) based on available devices, such as the video4linux
- plugin does with video decoders on certain embedded systems.
-- gst\_segment\_to\_position() has been deprecated and been replaced by the
- better-named gst\_segment\_position\_from\_running\_time(). At the same time
- gst\_segment\_position\_from\_stream\_time() was added, as well as \_full()
- variants of both to deal with negative stream time.
-- GstController: the interpolation control source gained a new monotonic cubic
- interpolation mode that, unlike the existing cubic mode, will never overshoot
- the min/max y values set.
-- GstNetAddressMeta: can now be read from buffers in language bindings as well,
- via the new gst\_buffer\_get\_net\_address\_meta() function
-- ID3 tag PRIV frames are now extraced into a new GST\_TAG\_PRIVATE\_DATA tag
-- gst-launch-1.0 and gst\_parse\_launch() now warn in the most common case if
- a dynamic pad link could not be resolved, instead of just silently
- waiting to see if a suitable pad appears later, which is often perceived
- by users as hanging -- they are now notified when this happens and can check
- their pipeline.
-- GstRTSPConnection now also parses custom RTSP message headers and retains
- them for the application instead of just ignoring them
-- rtspsrc handling of authentication over tunneled connections (e.g. RTSP over HTTP)
- was fixed
-- gst\_video\_convert\_sample() now crops if there is a crop meta on the input buffer
-- The debugging system printf functions are now exposed for general use, which
- supports special printf format specifiers such as GST\_PTR\_FORMAT and
- GST\_SEGMENT\_FORMAT to print GStreamer-related objects. This is handy for
- systems that want to prepare some debug log information to be output at a
- later point in time. The GStreamer-OpenGL subsystem is making use of these
- new functions, which are [gst\_info\_vasprintf()][gst_info_vasprintf],
- [gst\_info\_strdup\_vprintf()][gst_info_strdup_vprintf] and
-- videoparse: "strides", "offsets" and "framesize" properties have been added to
- allow parsing raw data with strides and padding that do not match GStreamer
-- GstPreset reads presets from the directories given in GST\_PRESET\_PATH now.
- Presets are read from there after presets in the system path, but before
- application and user paths.
-### New Elements
-- [netsim](): a new (resurrected) element to simulate network jitter and
- packet dropping / duplication.
-- New VP9 RTP payloader/depayloader elements: rtpvp9pay/rtpvp9depay
-- New [videoframe_audiolevel]() element, a video frame synchronized audio level element
-- New spandsp-based tone generator source
-- New NVIDIA NVENC-based H.264 encoder for GPU-accelerated video encoding on
- suitable NVIDIA hardware
-- [rtspclientsink](), a new RTSP RECORD sink element, was added to gst-rtsp-server
-- [alsamidisrc](), a new ALSA MIDI sequencer source element
-### Noteworthy element features and additions
-- *identity*: new ["drop-buffer-flags"](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gstreamer-plugins/html/gstreamer-plugins-identity.html#GstIdentity--drop-buffer-flags)
- property to drop buffers based on buffer flags. This can be used to drop all
- non-keyframe buffers, for example.
-- *multiqueue*: various fixes and improvements, in particular special handling
- for sparse streams such as substitle streams, to make sure we don't overread
- them any more. For sparse streams it can be normal that there's no buffer for
- a long period of time, so having no buffer queued is perfectly normal. Before
- we would often unnecessarily try to fill the subtitle stream queue, which
- could lead to much more data being queued in multiqueue than necessary.
-- *multiqueue*/*queue*: When dealing with time limits, these elements now use the
- new ["GST_BUFFER_DTS_OR_PTS"](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gstreamer/html/GstBuffer.html#GST-BUFFER-DTS-OR-PTS:CAPS)
- and ["gst_segment_to_running_time_full()"](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gstreamer/html/GstSegment.html#gst-segment-to-running-time-full)
- API, resulting in more accurate levels, especially when dealing with non-raw
- streams (where reordering happens, and we want to use the increasing DTS as
- opposed to the non-continuously increasing PTS) and out-of-segment input/output.
- Previously all encoded buffers before the segment start, which can happen when
- doing ACCURATE seeks, were not taken into account in the queue level calculation.
-- *multiqueue*: New ["use-interleave"](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gstreamer-plugins/html/gstreamer-plugins-multiqueue.html#GstMultiQueue--use-interleave)
- property which allows the size of the queues to be optimized based on the input
- streams interleave. This should only be used with input streams which are properly
- timestamped. It will be used in the future decodebin3 element.
-- *queue2*: new ["avg-in-rate"](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gstreamer-plugins/html/gstreamer-plugins-queue2.html#GstQueue2--avg-in-rate)
- property that returns the average input rate in bytes per second
-- audiotestsrc now supports all audio formats and is no longer artificially
- limited with regard to the number of channels or sample rate
-- gst-libav (ffmpeg codec wrapper): map and enable JPEG2000 decoder
-- multisocketsink can, on request, send a custom GstNetworkMessage event
- upstream whenever data is received from a client on a socket. Similarly,
- socketsrc will, on request, pick up GstNetworkMessage events from downstream
- and send any data contained within them via the socket. This allows for
- simple bidirectional communication.
-- matroska muxer and demuxer now support the ProRes video format
-- Improved VP8/VP9 decoding performance on multi-core systems by enabling
- multi-threaded decoding in the libvpx-based decoders on such systems
-- appsink has a new ["wait-on-eos"](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gst-plugins-base-plugins/html/gst-plugins-base-plugins-appsink.html#GstAppSink--wait-on-eos)
- property, so in cases where it is uncertain if an appsink will have a consumer for
- its buffers when it receives an EOS this can be set to FALSE to ensure that the
- appsink will not hang.
-- rtph264pay and rtph265pay have a new "config-interval" mode -1 that will
- re-send the setup data (SPS/PPS/VPS) before every keyframe to ensure
- optimal coverage and the shortest possibly start-up time for a new client
-- mpegtsmux can now mux H.265/HEVC video as well
-- The MXF muxer was ported to 1.x and produces more standard conformant files now
- that can be handled by more other software; The MXF demuxer got improved
- support for seek tables (IndexTableSegments).
-### Plugin moves
-- The rtph265pay/depay RTP payloader/depayloader elements for H.265/HEVC video
- from the rtph265 plugin in -bad have been moved into the existing rtp plugin
- in gst-plugins-good.
-- The mpg123 plugin containing a libmpg123 based audio decoder element has
- been moved from -bad to -ugly.
-- The Opus encoder/decoder elements have been moved to gst-plugins-base and
- the RTP payloader to gst-plugins-good, both coming from gst-plugins-bad.
-### New tracing tools for developers
-A new tracing subsystem API has been added to GStreamer, which provides
-external tracers with the possibility to strategically hook into GStreamer
-internals and collect data that can be evaluated later. These tracers are a
-new type of plugin features, and GStreamer core ships with a few example
-tracers (latency, stats, rusage, log) to start with. Tracers can be loaded
-and configured at start-up via an environment variable (GST\_TRACER\_PLUGINS).
-Background: While GStreamer provides plenty of data on what's going on in a
-pipeline via its debug log, that data is not necessarily structured enough to
-be generally useful, and the overhead to enable logging output for all data
-required might be too high in many cases. The new tracing system allows tracers
-to just obtain the data needed at the right spot with as little overhead as
-possible, which will be particularly useful on embedded systems.
-Of course it has always been possible to do performance benchmarks and debug
-memory leaks, memory consumption and invalid memory access using standard
-operating system tools, but there are some things that are difficult to track
-with the standard tools, and the new tracing system helps with that. Examples
-are things such as latency handling, buffer flow, ownership transfer of
-events and buffers from element to element, caps negotiation, etc.
-For some background on the new tracing system, watch Stefan Sauer's
-GStreamer Conference talk ["A new tracing subsystem for GStreamer"][tracer-0]
-and for a more specific example how it can be useful have a look at
-Thiago Santos's lightning talk ["Analyzing caps negotiation using GstTracer"][tracer-1]
-and his ["GstTracer experiments"][tracer-2] blog post. There was also a Google
-Summer of Code project in 2015 that used tracing system for a graphical
-GStreamer debugging tool ["gst-debugger"][tracer-3].
-This is all still very much work in progress, but we hope this will provide the
-foundation for a whole suite of new debugging tools for GStreamer pipelines.
-### GstPlayer: a new high-level API for cross-platform multimedia playback
-GStreamer has had reasonably high-level API for multimedia playback
-in the form of the playbin element for a long time. This allowed application
-developers to just configure a URI to play, and playbin would take care of
-everything else. This works well, but there is still way too much to do on
-the application-side to implement a fully-featured playback application, and
-too much general GStreamer pipeline API exposed, making it less accessible
-to application developers.
-Enter GstPlayer. GstPlayer's aim is to provide an even higher-level abstraction
-of a fully-featured playback API but specialised for its specific use case. It
-also provides easy integration with and examples for Gtk+, Qt, Android, OS/X,
-iOS and Windows. Watch Sebastian's [GstPlayer talk at the GStreamer Conference][gstplayer-talk]
-for more information, or check out the [GstPlayer API reference][gstplayer-api]
-and [GstPlayer examples][gstplayer-examples].
-### Adaptive streaming: DASH, HLS and MSS improvements
-- dashdemux now supports loading external xml nodes pointed from its MPD.
-- Content protection nodes parsing support for PlayReady WRM in mssdemux.
-- Reverse playback was improved to respect seek start and stop positions.
-- Adaptive demuxers (hlsdemux, dashdemux, mssdemux) now support the SNAP_AFTER
- and SNAP_BEFORE seek flags which will jump to the nearest fragment boundary
- when executing a seek, which means playback resumes more quickly after a seek.
-### Audio library improvements
-- audio conversion, quantization and channel up/downmixing functionality
- has been moved from the audioconvert element into the audio library and
- is now available as public API in form of [GstAudioConverter][audio-0],
- [GstAudioQuantize][audio-1] and [GstAudioChannelMixer][audio-2].
- Audio resampling will follow in future releases.
-- [gst\_audio\_channel\_get\_fallback\_mask()][audio-3] can be used
- to retrieve a default channel mask for a given number of channels as last
- resort if the layout is unknown
-- A new [GstAudioClippingMeta][audio-4] meta was added for specifying clipping
- on encoded audio buffers
-- A new GstAudioVisualizer base class for audio visualisation elements;
- most of the existing visualisers have been ported over to the new base class.
- This new base class lives in the pbutils library rather than the audio library,
- since we'd have had to make libgstaudio depend on libgstvideo otherwise,
- which was deemed undesirable.
-### GStreamer OpenGL support improvements
-#### Better OpenGL Shader support
-[GstGLShader][shader] has been revamped to allow more OpenGL shader types
-by utilizing a new GstGLSLStage object. Each stage holds an OpenGL pipeline
-stage such as a vertex, fragment or a geometry shader that are all compiled
-separately into a program that is executed.
-The glshader element has also received a revamp as a result of the changes in
-the library. It does not take file locations for the vertex and fragment
-shaders anymore. Instead it takes the strings directly leaving the file
-management to the application.
-A new [example][liveshader-example] was added utilizing the new shader
-infrastructure showcasing live shader edits.
-#### OpenGL GLMemory rework
-[GstGLMemory] was extensively reworked to support the addition of multiple
-texture targets required for zero-copy integration with the Android
-MediaCodec elements. This work was also used to provide IOSurface based
-GLMemory on OS X for zero-copy with OS X's VideoToolbox decoder (vtdec) and
-AV Foundation video source (avfvideosrc). There are also patches in bugzilla
-for GstGLMemoryEGL specifically aimed at improving the decoding performance on
-the Raspberry Pi.
-A texture-target field was added to video/x-raw(memory:GLMemory) caps to signal
-the texture target contained in the GLMemory. Its values can be 2D, rectangle
-or external-oes. glcolorconvert can convert between the different formats as
-required and different elements will accept or produce different targets. e.g.
-glimagesink can take and render external-oes textures directly as required for
-effecient zero-copy on android.
-A generic GL allocation framework was also implemented to support the generic
-allocation of OpenGL buffers and textures which is used extensively by
-#### OpenGL DMABuf import uploader
-There is now a DMABuf uploader available for automatic selection that will
-attempt to import the upstream provided DMABuf. The uploader will import into
-2D textures with the necesarry format. YUV to RGB conversion is still provided
-by glcolorconvert to avoid the laxer restrictions with external-oes textures.
-#### OpenGL queries
-Queries of various aspects of the OpenGL runtime such as timers, number of
-samples or the current timestamp are not possible. The GstGLQuery object uses a
-delayed debug system to delay the debug output to later to avoid expensive calls
-to the glGet\* family of functions directly after finishing a query. It is
-currently used to output the time taken to perform various operations of texture
-uploads and downloads in GstGLMemory.
-#### New OpenGL elements
-glcolorbalance has been created mirroring the videobalance elements.
-glcolorbalance provides the exact same interface as videobalance so can be used
-as a GPU accelerated replacement. glcolorbalance has been added to glsinkbin so
-usage with playsink/playbin will use it automatically instead of videobalance
-glvideoflip, which is the OpenGL equiavalant of videoflip, implements the exact
-same interface and functionality as videoflip.
-#### EGL implementation now selects OpenGL 3.x
-The EGL implementation can now select OpenGL 3.x contexts.
-#### OpenGL API removal
-The GstGLDownload library object was removed as it was not used by anything.
-Everything is performed by GstGLMemory or in the gldownloadelement.
-The GstGLUploadMeta library object was removed as it was not being used and we
-don't want to promote the use of GstVideoGLTextureUploadMeta.
-#### OpenGL: Other miscellaneous changes
-- The EGL implementation can now select OpenGL 3.x contexts. This brings
- OpenGL 3.x to e.g. wayland and other EGL systems.
-- glstereomix/glstereosplit are now built and are usable on OpenGL ES systems
-- The UYVY/YUY2 to RGBA and RGBA to UYVY/YUY2 shaders were fixed removing the
- sawtooth pattern and luma bleeding.
-- We now utilize the GL\_APPLE\_sync extension on iOS devices which improves
- performance of OpenGL applications, especially with multiple OpenGL
-- glcolorconvert now uses a bufferpool to avoid costly
- glGenTextures/glDeleteTextures for every frame.
-- glvideomixer now has full glBlendFunc and glBlendEquation support per input.
-- gltransformation now support navigation events so your weird transformations
- also work with DVD menus.
-- qmlglsink can now run on iOS, OS X and Android in addition to the already
- supported Linux platform.
-- glimagesink now posts unhandled keyboard and mouse events (on backends that
- support user input, current only X11) on the bus for the application.
-### Initial GStreamer Vulkan support
-Some new elements, vulkansink and vulkanupload have been implemented utilizing
-the new Vulkan API. The implementation is currently limited to X11 platforms
-(via xcb) and does not perform any scaling of the stream's contents to the size
-of the available output.
-A lot of infrasctructure work has been undertaken to support using Vulkan in
-GStreamer in the future. A number of GstMemory subclasses have been created for
-integrating Vulkan's GPU memory handling along with VkBuffer's and VkImage's
-that can be passed between elements. Some GStreamer refcounted wrappers for
-global objects such as VkInstance, VkDevice, VkQueue, etc have also been
-implemented along with GstContext integration for sharing these objects with the
-### GStreamer VAAPI support for hardware-accelerated video decoding and encoding on Intel (and other) platforms
-#### GStreamer VAAPI is now part of upstream GStreamer
-The GStreamer-VAAPI module which provides support for hardware-accelerated
-video decoding, encoding and post-processing on Intel graphics hardware
-on Linux has moved from its previous home at the [Intel Open Source Technology Center][iostc]
-to the upstream GStreamer repositories, where it will in future be maintained
-as part of the upstream GStreamer project and released in lockstep with the
-other GStreamer modules. The current maintainers will continue to spearhead
-the development at the new location:
-GStreamer-VAAPI relies heavily on certain GStreamer infrastructure API that
-is still in flux such as the OpenGL integration API or the codec parser
-libraries, and one of the goals of the move was to be able to leverage
-new developments early and provide tighter integration with the latest
-developments of those APIs and other graphics-related APIs provided by
-GStreamer, which should hopefully improve performance even further and in
-some cases might also provide better stability.
-Thanks to everyone involved in making this move happen!
-#### GStreamer VAAPI: Bug tracking
-Bugs had already been tracked on [GNOME bugzilla](bgo) but will be moved
-from the gstreamer-vaapi product into a new gstreamer-vaapi component of
-the GStreamer product in bugzilla. Please file new bugs against the new
-component in the GStreamer product from now on.
-#### GStreamer VAAPI: Pending patches
-The code base has been re-indented to the GStreamer code style, which
-affected some files more than others. This means that some of the patches
-in bugzilla might not apply any longer, so if you have any unmerged patches
-sitting in bugzilla please consider checking if they still apply cleany and
-refresh them if not. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
-#### GStreamer VAAPI: New versioning scheme and supported GStreamer versions
-The version numbering has been changed to match the GStreamer version
-numbering to avoid confusion: there is a new gstreamer-vaapi 1.6.0 release
-and a 1.6 branch that is roughly equivalent to the previous 0.7.0 version.
-Future releases 1.7.x and 1.8.x will be made alongside GStreamer releases.
-While it was possible and supported by previous releases to build against
-a whole range of different GStreamer versions (such as 1.2, 1.4, 1.6 or 1.7/1.8),
-in the future there will only be one target branch, so that git master will
-track GStreamer git master, 1.8.x will target GStreamer 1.8, and
-1.6.x will target the 1.6 series.
-#### GStreamer VAAPI: Miscellaneous changes
-All GStreamer-VAAPI functionality is now provided solely by its GStreamer
-elements. There is no more public library exposing GstVaapi API, this API
-was only ever meant for private use by the elements. Parts of it may be
-resurrected again in future if needed, but for now it has all been made
-GStreamer-VAAPI now unconditionally uses the codecparser library in
-gst-plugins-bad instead of shipping its own internal copy. Similarly,
-it no longer ships its own codec parsers but relies on the upstream
-codec parser elements.
-The GStreamer-VAAPI encoder elements have been renamed from vaapiencode_foo
-to vaapifooenc, so encoders are now called vaapih264enc, vaapih265enc,
-vaapimpeg2enc, vaapijpegenc, and vaapivp8enc. With this change we now follow
-the standard names in GStreamer, and the plugin documentation is generated
-In the case of the decoders, only the jpeg decoder has been split from the
-general decoding element vaapidecode: vaapijpegdec. This is the first step to
-split per codec each decoding element. The vaapijpegdec has also been given
-marginal rank for the time being.
-#### GStreamer VAAPI: New features in 1.8: 10-bit H.265/HEVC decoding support
-Support for decoding 10-bit H.265/HEVC has been added. For the time being
-this only works in combination with vaapisink though, until support for the
-P010 video format used internally is added to GStreamer and to the
-vaGetImage()/vaPutimage() API in the vaapi-intel-driver.
-Several fixes for memory leaks, build errors, and in the internal
-Finally, vaapisink now posts the unhandled keyboard and mouse events to the
-### GStreamer Video 4 Linux Support
-Colorimetry support has been enhanced even more. It will now properly select
-default values when not specified by the driver. The range of color formats
-supported by GStreamer has been greatly improved. Notably, support for
-multi-planar I420 has been added along with all the new and non-ambiguous RGB
-formats that got added in recent kernels.
-The device provider now exposes a variety of properties as found in the udev
-The video decoder is now able to negotiate the downstream format.
-Elements that are dynamically created from /dev/video\* now track changes on
-these devices to ensure the registry stay up to date.
-All this and various bug fixes that improve both stability and correctness.
-### GStreamer Editing Services
-Added APIs to handle asset proxying support. Proxy creation is not the
-responsibility of GES itself, but GES provides all the needed features
-for it to be cleanly handled at a higher level.
-Added support for changing playback rate. This means that now, whenever a
-user adds a 'pitch' element (as it is the only known element to change playback
-rate through properties), GES will handle everything internally. This change
-introduced a new media-duration-factor property in NleObject which will
-lead to tweaking of seek events so they have the proper playback range to be
-Construction of NLE objects has been reworked making copy/pasting fully
-functional and allowing users to set properties on effects right after
-Rework of the title source to add more flexibility in text positioning,
-and letting the user get feedback about rendered text positioning.
-Report nlecomposition structural issues (coming from user programing mistakes)
-into ERROR messages on the bus.
-Add GI/pythyon testsuite in GES itself, making sure the API is working as expected
-in python, and allowing writing tests faster.
-Added support to run tests inside gdb.
-Added a 'smart' reporting mode where we give as much information as possible about
-Uses GstTracer now instead of a LD\_PRELOAD library.
-- encodebin now works with "encoder-muxers" such as wavenc
-- gst-play-1.0 acquired a new keyboard shortcut: '0' seeks back to the start
-- gst-play-1.0 supports two new command line switches: -v for verbose output
- and --flags to configure the playbin flags to use.
-## Build and Dependencies
-- The GLib dependency requirement was bumped to 2.40
-- The -Bsymbolic configure check now works with clang as well
-- ffmpeg is now required as libav provider, incompatible changes were
- introduced that make it no longer viable to support both FFmpeg and Libav
- as libav providers. Most major distros have switched to FFmpeg or are in
- the process of switching to it anyway, so we don't expect this to be a
- problem, and there is still an internal copy of ffmpeg that can be used
- as fallback if needed.
-- The internal ffmpeg snapshot is now FFMpeg 3.0, but it should be possible
- to build against 2.8 as well for the time being.
-## Platform-specific improvements
-- Zero-copy video decoding on Android using the hardware-accelerated decoders
- has been implemented, and is fully integrated with the GStreamer OpenGL stack
-- ahcsrc, a new camera source element, has been merged and can be used to
- capture video on android devices. It uses the android.hardware.Camera Java
- API to capture from the system's cameras.
-- The OpenGL-based QML video sink can now also be used on Android
-- New tinyalsasink element, which is mainly useful for Android but can also
- be used on other platforms.
-### OS/X and iOS
-- The system clock now uses mach\_absolute\_time() on OSX/iOS, which is
- the preferred high-resolution monotonic clock to be used on Apple platforms
-- The OpenGL-based QML video sink can now also be used on OS X and iOS (with
- some Qt build system massaging)
-- New IOSurface based memory implementation in avfvideosrc and vtdec on OS X
- for zerocopy with OpenGL. The previously used OpenGL extension
- GL_APPLE_ycbcr_422 is not compatible with GL 3.x core contexts.
-- New GstAppleCoreVideoMemory wrapping CVPixelBuffer's
-- avfvideosrc now supports renegotiation.
-- Various bugs with UDP and multicast were fixed on Windows, mostly related to
-- A few bugs in directsoundsrc and directsoundsink were fixed that could cause
- the element to lock up. Also the "mute" property on the sink was fixed, and
- a new "device" property for device selection was added to the source.
-## Known Issues
-- Building GStreamer applications with the Android NDK r11 is currently not
- supported due to incompatible changes in the NDK. This is expected to be
- fixed for 1.8.1.
- [Bugzilla #763999](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=763999)
-- vp8enc crashes on 32 bit Windows, but was working fine in 1.6. 64 bit
- Windows is unaffected.

-## Bugs fixed in 1.8
-More than [~700 bugs][bugs-fixed-in-1.8] have been fixed during
-the development of 1.8.
-This list does not include issues that have been cherry-picked into the
-stable 1.6 branch and fixed there as well, all fixes that ended up in the
-1.6 branch are also included in 1.8.
-This list also does not include issues that have been fixed without a bug
-report in bugzilla, so the actual number of fixes is much higher.
-## Stable 1.8 branch
-After the 1.8.0 release there will be several 1.8.x bug-fix releases which
-will contain bug fixes which have been deemed suitable for a stable branch,
-but no new features or intrusive changes will be added to a bug-fix release
-usually. The 1.8.x bug-fix releases will be made from the git 1.8 branch, which
-is a stable branch.
-1.8.0 was released on 24 March 2016.
-The first 1.8 bug-fix release (1.8.1) is planned for April 2016.
-## Schedule for 1.10
-Our next major feature release will be 1.10, and 1.9 will be the unstable
-development version leading up to the stable 1.10 release. The development
-of 1.9/1.10 will happen in the git master branch.
+The first 1.8 bug-fix release (1.8.1) was released on 20 April 2016.
+This release only contains bugfixes and it should be safe to update from 1.8.0.
-The plan for the 1.10 development cycle is yet to be confirmed, but it is
-expected that feature freeze will be around late July or early August,
-followed by several 1.9 pre-releases and the new 1.10 stable release
+#### Major bugfixes in 1.8.1
-1.10 will be backwards-compatible to the stable 1.8, 1.6, 1.4, 1.2 and 1.0
+ - Fix app compilation with Android NDK r11 and newer
+ - Fix compilation of nvenc plugin against latest NVIDIA SDK 6.0
+ - Fix regression in avdeinterlace
+ - Fix memory corruption in scaletempo element with S16 input
+ - Fix regression in qtdemux with MSE streams
+ - Fix glitches at the start with all audio sinks except for pulsesink
+ - Fix regression with encrypted HLS streams
+ - Fix automatic multithreaded decoding of VP8/9 video
+ - Fix deadlock in HTTP adaptive streams when scrub-seeking
+ - Fix regression in RTSP source with SRTP
+ - Add support for SRTP rollover counters in the RTSP source
+ - Add support for HiDPI ("Retina") screens in caopengllayersink
+ - ... and many more!
