Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 205575
Upgrade to gstreamer 0.10.10
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:42 EST
The gstreamer (and associated plugins) versions are woefully out of date
(currently the FC-5 version of gstreamer is at 0.10.4) and recent version fix
bugs such as bug #189617 (titles for streaming radio stations). Please upgrade
gstreamer and associated plugin packages.
gstreamer 0.10.10 is out.
Ping? Any chance of an upgrade?
In general, packages don't get major upgrades during a release. If your wanting
the latest/greatest of a package you should probably be running Rawhide.

But it's not a major upgrade it's still in the gstreamer 0.10 series and is
binary compatible with all previous releases by design, and they make gstreamer
releases pretty often. Since FC-6 is out, I'm now not so worried about FC-5,
but does this mean that FC-6 will be "stuck" with the same gstreamer that it
happened to have when it was released.
Many new features and/or bugs fixed in gstreamer releases that are useful to
users that will be missed. For example there are several bug reports on
rhythmbox Internet radio showing song titles that would have been fixed by an
upgrade, and also some major crashers.

Jokosher is a complex gstreamer application (a non-linear audio editor) that has
garnered widespread attention in the FOSS community thanks to its constant
discussion on LUGRadio. Unfortunately the latest version depends on
gstreamer-plugins-good 0.10.5. It would be great if we could get this updated
as I agree with the other bug filers that this is outdated and needs upgrading.
There is four months to go until FC7.
$ rpm -q gstreamer
As for using Jokosher, if you want to using bleeding edge/not useful for many
people yet type of applications, you're better off installing your dependencies
