Release notes for Flumotion 0.6.2 "Fantastico"

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

After some time since the last update to the 0.6 stable series we though it would be nice to fix a bunch of bugs that have annoyed the users for the last nine months and make Flumotion even more stable.

This update includes a more user friendly wizard with less navigation problems and better device detection/configuration: webcam, firewire and soundcard steps have been improved and now report properly the information from the devices.

For packagers, be aware we have bumped twisted's requirements to version 2.5.0.

Apart from that, this release includes some minor bugfixes and cosmetic differences that were added after 0.6.1.

Below is the summary of the bugs fixed since the last stable release codenamed "El Agüelo".
