buzztard 0.1 "genesis" released

Finally! We did release 0.1 "genesis". In June 2002 we registered the project and started thinking. For more than year nothing big happened. In February 2004 the first GStreamer example code landed in CVS. That was using GStreamer 0.8. Then the metamorphosis began: using GObject, adding unit tests, API docs, user docs and so on. In August 2005 came the switch to GStreamer 0.10. In summer 2006 our team grew from 2 to 4 developers. The whole project already contains 139000 lines of code. Downloads are available on the sf.net project page. Instructions for building are on the project wiki.

Even though the current code is maybe a bit rough and the applications are not that usable yet, we're confident that new releases will follow quickly and bring the missing pieces. If you want it happen faster, join the project. We have lots of tasks, some with a fleshed out concept, some merely ideas, some suitable for not so experienced developers, so quite tricky.
