Anyone who follows GStreamer knows that I merged a rewrite of an entire subsystem on 23 December and then disappeared for 5 days. I didn't intend to disappear for 5 days, it's just that my parents don't have a decent network connection.

So aside from major subsystem rewrites, GStreamer seems to be settling down quite nicely. We have a lot of new infrastructure since 0.6, and now we get to update all the plugins to fully utilize the new possibilities. Hopefully we'll get everything filled out, including the documentation in time to surpass everyone's expectations in March. Also, why is it that just when we need to do an API freeze, I keep thinking of API changes that need to be made?

About a month ago, I made a comment that we needed a few more GStreamer hackers. Interestingly, in the last month, a number of new people have been hanging out on IRC and writing code, which is encouraging. Is it just me, or when new regulars show up on IRC, it feels like they've been there forever, just kinda quiet?

The real reason I'm posting a new entry so I can see the head that was apparently assigned to me by thomasvs.
