Porting Ekiga to Gnome 3

If somebody wants to play and help porting Ekiga to GTK3, Damien Sandras has pushed his branch "ds-gtk3" to git.

It is currently non-functional, and aimed to developers.

Some of the goals are:

  • Simplification of the GUI (stuff non relevant to most users)
  • Code more simple to understand

Ekiga 3.3.0 [UNSTABLE] available

12/21/2010, the internet.

This is the first unstable release of the upcoming 3.4 version of Ekiga. It is a major release, bringing several changes (bugs and protocol fixes, but not so much features and no security fix) since almost two years ago. It is not a replacement of the last stable release (3.2.7), but should be used by people having problems with the stable release (e.g. a pulse plugin plugin is included in this release) and by people who want to help ekiga.

While it has not received much 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 that presence does not work reliably. Three additional regressions are known:

  • the fix "Use NAT ports instead of local ports for RTP, fixing many connection issues", added in the last stable release, is not included,
  • the fix for 16bpp mode, added in the last stable release, is not included either
  • and on Windows ekiga sometimes crashes on exit.

You can grab the Windows version here: 3.3.0 unstable release for Windows (20MB)

Ekiga 3.2.7 available

This is the seventh stable release of the 3.2 version of Ekiga.

This release is dedicated to kapetr, who helped tremendously to fix the important NAT ports bug.

UPDATE: Windows installer is ready, Packages for Fedora 13/12/11 are ready, more GNU/Linux packages will come soon...

Big news for this release:

  • Fix many connection issues (nat ports), see below
  • Fix major bug for windows uninstall
  • No windows-specific issue known, feel free to use it
