Ekiga 4.0.1 [STABLE] available

Hello everyone,

This is the first update of the 4.0.0 stable release. It deals exclusively with bug fixing.

The most important change is fixing ALL known crashes and freezes, especially the long-standing freeze on quit on Windows. Add to this making H.323 with gatekeeper functional again, two registration fixes, and numerous other fixes here and there. There is also a security fix.

We encourage everyone to upgrade to this latest greatest version of ekiga.

The next release will be 4.0.2 or 4.2.0, targetted mainly at replacing obsolete technologies and fixing remaining registration and communication issues. After 4.2.0, we will switch to using v12 of ptlib/opal underlying libraries and will be able to provide the much-awaited communication encryption and IPv6 support.

Ekiga 3.9.90 [UNSTABLE] available

This is the beta release of the upcoming 4.0.0 version of Ekiga.

It is an important release, which has an overhaul of the main window, reduces startup time in some cases, supports latest ffmpeg/libav for H.263, H.264 and MPEG4 video codecs and fixes many other issues (but no security fix) since the previous unstable release 3.3.2 (released exactly one year before!!)

One regression is known: editing account settings might crash ekiga.

Interview about Ekiga

My friend Josette recently published an interview about Ekiga on her JosetteOrama.com blog.

You can read it here.

I am slowly getting back into business, and my view about Ekiga has changed a lot.

I will try to post something on my blog soon.

Enjoy the reading !

Upgrading our server, part 2

The documentation is now back online, ekiga.net has been upgraded as well, and the ekiga white pages are back too. Thanks goes to Damien Sandras!

EDIT 10/09/2011: There was an issue for the writing process on the wiki which has been fixed a few days ago by Damien Sandras! The culprit was a lack of memory allocation.

Upgrading our server

We are currently in the process of upgrading the softwares running on our server. The base components are already upgraded thanks to Damien Sandras.

In the process our documentation (the wiki) is unavailable for the moment. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Ekiga 3.3.2 [UNSTABLE] available

The "H264 and H263+ codecs, welcome back" release

This is the third unstable release of the upcoming 3.4 version of Ekiga.

It is a bug-fixing release since the previous unstable release (1 month ago). It is not yet a replacement of the last stable release (3.2.7), but should be used by people having problems with the stable release and by people who want to help ekiga.

It has received only few testing, it works on developers machines, and the only known major regression (which should hopefully be fixed in the next unstable release) compared to the last stable release is the following:

  • after a (missed) incoming call during a communication, cannot be called anymore

Changes in ekiga 3.3.2 (2011-08-22)

User-visible fixes
  • Re-add back H264 and H263+ video plugins
  • Fix presence in case of several tuples
  • Fix presence when receiving old presentity type without note
  • Re-add contact limited compatibility mode for bogus registrars
  • Fix leaking the opal account store in the assistant
  • Make Enter key in roster (contact list) make a call
  • Fix infinite loops in the loudmouth presentity code
  • Add mnemonics to buttons in Accounts dialog box
  • Fix _dl_close failed assertion at quit

Ekiga 3.3.1 [UNSTABLE] available

This is the second unstable release of the upcoming 3.4 version of Ekiga. It is an important release, fixing several issues (bugs and protocol fixes, but not so much features and no security fix) since the previous unstable release (7 months ago). It is not yet a replacement of the last stable release (3.2.7), but should be used by people having problems with the stable release and by people who want to help ekiga.

It has received only few testing, it works on developers machines, and the only known major regressions (which should hopefully be fixed in the next unstable release) compared to the last stable release are the following:

  • presence works, but is not 100% reliable
  • after a (missed) incoming call during a communication, cannot be called anymore
