Brief summary of changes since 0.4.2: - Provide a gstreamer-based MediaRenderer plugin. This is mostly code stolen ( and heavily adapted) from gupnp-media-renderer except that it doesn't depend on libowl-av and/or gtk+. - More ease for MediaServer implementors. - Better error handling. - Make sure no message is suppressed until we know what level of console output user wants. - Make use of vala's async support to simplify code quite a bit. - Plugins should load xml files from source tree when built with '--enable-uninstalled' configure flag. - Build with no optimizations in debug mode. - Use closure table to speed up object lookup and deletion. - Add build option for SQL debugging. - Workaround a crasher bug (#3774) in sqlite 3.6.12. - Use vala's static client D-Bus syntax. - Early ignorance of disabled plugins. This not only speeds-up startup a bit but also rids us of redundant debug messages. - MediaExport: - Nicely handle unavailability of gstreamer's playbin(2) element. - Fix a potential crasher. - Tracker: - Use multidimensional arrays to deal with search results. This combined with static client D-Bus syntax gives us quite a speed boost. - Handle item creation error. - External: - Allow applications to provide custom thumbnails for items. - Support pixel-aspect-ratio properties. - All D-Bus operations are now done asynchronously. - Make use of plugin icon if provided. - Move magic string substitution to core so other plugins can benefit from it. - Lots of other improvements and bug fixes. Dependency-related changes: - Require and adapt to libgee >= 0.5. - Require and adapt to valac >= 0.7.8. Bugs fixed in this release: 597276 - Rygel crash on startup 587649 - thumbnails not published for external media servers 589959 - External plugin should query media servers on demand 598005 - unable to load media-tracker plugin All contributors to this release: Zeeshan Ali (Khattak)
