KDE "Like the previously featured articles on new KDE 4 technologies for Job Processes or SVG Widgets, today we feature the shiny new multimedia technology Phonon. Phonon is designed to take some of the complications out of writing multimedia applications in KDE 4, and ensure that these applications will work on a multitude of platforms and sound architectures. Unfortunately, writing about a sound technology produces very few snazzy screenshots, so instead this week has a few more technical details. Read on for the details."

My guess is no, and I hope Gnome will stick to relying on plain GStreamer. Like most Gnome libraries GStreamer uses GObject for object-oriented programming style, which means that bindings for other languages are easily auto-generated. This means that complete multimedia applications can be developed in higherlevel languages such as Python, Java or C#.
