gst123-0.1.2 has been released.

Overview of changes in gst123-0.1.2:
* Added -a option to select audio driver (oss, alsa) and device (/dev/dsp1, hw:1)
* Fix crash triggered when closing the video window (thanks Siddhesh Poyarekar)
* Improved configure check (works now if ncurses headers are not in /usr/include)

What is gst123?
The program gst123 is designed to be a more flexible command line player in the
spirit of ogg123 and mpg123, based on gstreamer. It plays all file formats
gstreamer understands, so if you have a music collection which contains
different file formats, like flac, ogg and mp3, you can use gst123 to play all
your music files.

Since gst123-0.1.0 support for watching videos has been added; however gst123
should run fine in situations where no X11 display is available; videos can be
played without X11 display, too (-x, --novideo); in this case, only the audio
stream will be played.

It is implemented in C++ and licensed under the GNU LGPL version 2
