Just released version 0.6.0 of the player. It features stuff like video effects, visualisation, lot of bug fixes and a very nice about box from jimmac (thanks Jakub).

Just commited some fixes in totem's cvs HEAD for gstreamer backend. Visualisation is fixed and scaling should work correctly. I hope we can have a release soon for people who want to use the GStreamer backend.

Getcontrol is doing fine. The photo listing is 80% implemented and that's the starting for a lot of listing (mp3, oggs, divx, etc..) The toolkit is quite stable now and i can really start integrating features inside. Though i still need to do a lot of work to get DirectFB support in both xine-lib and gstreamer.

We have done a lot of fixes the last week end. I have implemented subclassing for video sink. That will unify API for sdlvideosink, xvideosink, aasink, etc... Also made some changes in libgstplay in 0.6 branch to get a really stable background library for both totem, gst-player and getcontrol.

That week end has been quite poor in sleep hours but very rich in meeting interesting people. Our house hosted GMUADEC 2003 and it was a pleasure to welcome the GStreamer core developer team in our spanish castle ;-) I still need some days to get back to normal eyes opening but the week end has been very productive and GStreamer is on a good track in my opinion.

That's it for today
