Release notes for FlumotionĀ 0.8.1 "Fo Bar"

The Flumotion team announces a new release of the stable 0.8 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 months of wild development, we recalled it was time to give a small update to our stable series by fixing some of the most annoying bugs we have bumped into.

We spent some time to fix some issues with the firewire producer and the effects it uses. As a result, that annoying choppy audio should be gone now.

Apart from that, this release includes some minor bugfixes and cosmetic differences that were added after 0.8.0. Below is the summary of the changes since the last stable release codenamed "7 Portes". Since last year's stable release a lot of improvements have been done in the development branch (a.k.a. trunk) which we're proud to launch now with this new stable series.

Features of this release

  • Added Python 2.7 compatibility.
  • The wizzard allows serving an HTML page with the video tag (for Ogg and WebM streams). Thanks Zaheer!
  • The wizard and admin now remember the last directory used when exporting/importing a flow file to/from the filesystem.

Known issues

  • The firewire producer may produce choppy audio with old versions of gstreamer-plugins-base. If possible upgrade to a version greater than 0.10.26.
