"GStreamer 'Slipstream' 0.1.0 is a streaming-media framework which allows developers to construct arbitrary graph of filters to process media in just about any way you can think of. A long list of cool features and a huge (and growing) selection of plugins makes it able to play anything from mp3 files to DVD and DiVX ;-) movies, out of the box.
We're pleased to announce the availability of version 0.1.0 (dubbed "Slipstream") of the GStreamer streaming-media framework.
GStreamer 0.1.0 is the result of over a year of development by an international group of open source developers aspiring to build the ultimate streaming media framework. Although not yet completed, this release already boasts many impressive features and capabilities including a streamlined core library, an intelligent autoplugging architecture, extensive developer's tools, and a large plugin library. With all of the features listed below, GStreamer promises to be the leading architecture for streaming media. This intelligent pipeline opens new doors in bringing the latest in audio and video applications to the Linux desktop."
