Release notes for FlumotionĀ 0.4.2 "Belchica Strikes Back"

The Flumotion team is happy to announce a new release of the stable 0.4 branch of the Flumotion Streaming Server. Flumotion is a streaming server for GNU/Linux systems featuring an easy to use configuration and administration GUI. Implemented using GStreamer as the processing backend and using python and Twisted for the high-level operations and GUI, it combines a wide feature set with ease of use.

Features of this release

  • Full support for running under Python 2.5
  • The GTK admin can now start a manager and worker for you automatically
  • Messages now have timestamps to allow better diagnosis of failures
  • Improvements for service scripts to allow better recovery from failure states
  • With sufficiently recent GStreamer, components now provide much more information about errors in the data stream
  • Error resilience is drastically improved compared to older versions
