Suse 8.2 packages

Stefan Bruens has built a new GnomeMeeting package for Suse 8.2. You should use that package with the libraries provided by Suse.

I'll be doing a GnomeMeeting talk at the Spiennes Linux Days in Belgium this week-end.

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.

As promised earlier this week, SUSE RPMs of GnomeMeeting 0.96.1 for SUSE 8.1 are available now in the download section. Thanks to Stefan Bruens for his work on those packages.
