beyond. The version part is represented as VER below.
GStreamer plugins are split into a number of packages:

libraries and library plugins:
libgstreamer-plugins-baseVER-# various libs
libgstreamer-plugins-baseVER-dev development files for above package

The upstream ChangeLog is not included in all the plugin packages due to its
large size. Please see upstream sources if you are interested in detailed
source changes.
External tools support
Your favorite codec isn't wrapped as a plugin? External programs can be
used to process streams. Take a look at "pipefilter" element or try
something like this (untested):
$ mkfifo fifo
$ gst-launch myaudiosrc ! filesink location=fifo &
$ cat fifo | my_encoder > output_file
