New software for the ILS server

Our ILS master, Paul, has coded a few days on a new ILS server. The other server was not very scalable and crashed very often when too many GnomeMeeting users were registered. The new ILS server is more scalable (we reached 180 online users yesterday night without any problem), but it is also faster, less than 1 second to list all registered users.

Using the ILS server is of course optional, but we encourage you to use it. You can either be listed as online GnomeMeeting user, and meet other GnomeMeeting users, or be invisible. If you choose to be invisible, you are not visible in the online users directory, but you receive a callto URLs that you can transmit to your friends so that they can call you without the need to know your IP address or hostname.

We are also in the process to upgrade the server hardware (it will be a totally new server) and to move it to a new provider. It will be done in the following weeks.
