For one, the current version is 0.10 and therefore you will be mostly
interested in the packages named gstreamer0.10-*

Th other thing is that yes,things have changed in Feisty: namely, that
in Feisty there is no need anymore to deal with the gstreamer plugins
directly. You just start a media file and it either plays, or a helper
application comes up that gives some information and lets you install
the correct codec. Here is the specification of how it i supposed to
work now (in Feisty): https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EasyCodecInstallation

For more information on how it works in Edgy (that is, set up things
manually), look here
