Release notes for Flumotion 0.6.1 "El Agüelo"

The Flumotion team announces a new release of the stable 0.6 branch of the Flumotion Streaming Server.

Flumotion is a streaming media server created with the backing of Fluendo. It features intuitive graphical administration tools, making the task of setting up and manipulating audio and video streams easy for even novice system administrators. Flumotion is released under the GPL.

Release overview

In the best tradition of brown paper bag releases, here's a bugfix release of the 0.6 stable series. It turned out that the contents of 0.6.0 tarballs did not match the release tag and some last bugfixes made before the 0.6.0 release did not make it to those tarballs. We know who to blame and did the appropriate amount of pointing and laughing.

We mostly took the time to hunt down GStreamer issues that gave us some trouble during the final days leading to 0.6.0. We're happy to say that all of them have been addressed and Flumotion can now stream both Dirac inside Ogg and mu-law audio in multipart container. The components will detect if you're running an affected version of GStreamer and will display warning messages. To fully enjoy Flumotion as a multiformat streaming server, you will need at least gst-plugins-base 0.10.25, gst-plugins-good 0.10.17 and gst-plugins-bad 0.10.14, some of which are yet due to be released.

Apart from that, this release includes some minor bugfixes and cosmetic differences that were added after 0.6.0.

Below is the summary of the bugs fixed since the last stable release codenamed "Can Punyetes".

Bugs fixed in this release

  • 809 : bad error message for ical disker
  • 1267 : disker component should handle all exceptions that it might get from parsing the ical file
  • 1341 : [dirac] dirac encoder + ogg muxer produce empty output
  • 1342 : [mulaw + multipartmux] mulaw + multipart don't work
  • 1348 : cannot delete sleeping components for which there is no worker
  • 1354 : Update flumotion-{worker,manager,admin} man pages
