Personally, I have no use for gstreamer... ;-)

But I would be happy to have a 4.2.0-dev

 - without general error on Linux [1]
 - without crash when inserting a frame in Writer (cross platform) [2]
 - with the ability to open ppt files with a double click on Windows [3]

Shouldn't we concentrate on release blockers like these? There is enough
work to do before we can even think about releasing a beta.
