A new version of Galicaster has come out. Galicaster 1.2.3, providing compatibility with Opencast Mattehorn 1.4, which is on the way to release a stable 1.4.0 release. Nonetheless, backwards
compatibility with 1.2 and 1.3 Matterhorn is preserved.

In addition, Galicaster 1.2.2 comes with a couple of fixes affecting Matterhorn series fetching, Dublin Core Metadata standardization and recording time-stamping.

After two months of hard work developing an experimental Galicaster with live streaming, we've just passed our first acid test. The venue was an important annual conference, JAI 2012 held by the Industrial Engineering School at the University of Vigo.

To complete the streaming approach we've used a RTMP stream pointed to servers such as Wowza, Flash Media Server or CRTMP. Other important aspect of this experimental unit is the possibility of recording the streams independently - maintaining the dual video basis of Galicaster - and make a side-by-side composition to stream.

In addition, the composition is highly customizable, providing branding, side-by-side and picture-in-picture compositions.

Next test will be the annual reunion of RedIris, the Spanish NREN, on Bilbao.
