[maemo-developers] [ANN] gst-dsp 0.10.0 released

gst-dsp is a GStreamer plug-in to utilize Texas Intruments' DSP
algorithms for OMAP3 platforms using the tidspbridge driver.

It's time for another major release of gst-dsp.

The major feature is the implementation of parsers for H.263, H.264
and MPEG-4, which are needed for RTP communication. These have been
cooking for a long time, but they are finally cleaned up. Also,
support for dynamic framesize changes, thanks mostly to Marco
Ballesio. Also, properly latency reporting, which seems to help for
smooth streaming.

An important change is the introduction of a simple configure script.
So now you can do something like:

 DSP_API=0 ./configure

And never worry about setting DSP_API all the time. Of course, you can
keep using the old method (make DSP_API=0).

And many more subtle fixes and improvements, as usual.

The next branch already contains the work for 0.11.0, or maybe it will
be called 1.0! There's only a few things missing for 1.0 :)

You can download the tarball from the usual place:
