Installing the new version of GStreamer on raspberry
I noticed that the version installed on my raspberry (Debian Jessie) was very old: 1.4.4. I tried to update it with apt-get, without success. Then, I decided to install it manually. The problem now is that when I enter gst-launch-1.0 --version the system shows
gst-launch-1.0 version 1.12.1 but
GStreamer version 1.4.4.
I don't know if this is correct. If not, is there a way toto update it properly?

It's not entirely correct.
What it means is that the gst-launch-1.0 you are running is the one
from 1.12 (so your PATH is fine), but that the libgstreamer-1.0.so that
gets picked up by the dynamic linker is the old system one (1.4) and
not the new one you compiled.
First thing to try is: run 'sudo ldconfig'
If that doesn't help, check if the library directory of your install
prefix is in /etc/ld.so.conf*
You can also manually set/export the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment
variable and point it to the lib directory of the prefix where you
installed the new GStreamer into.
