I was talking with garnacho about the future of GST. The problem of the unidirectional communication between backend and frontend is more and more annoying. Garnacho thinks that it’s the moment to modernize GST. I totally agree.
There are two main goals:
- Use D-BUS for the communication backend – frontend
- Make a GObject wrapper for a libgst library
We’ll be able to do many things that we can’t with the current architecture, like send notifications from the backend to the frontend (for example when a removable network card is detached).

I’m desiring to begin! 🙂
