I am making progress on the next Ekiga release.
I have spent the last few months of spare time working on the user interface. The purpose is to adapt the UI and use the great GTK+3 features when adequate. There is still much left to do, but here are before and after screenshots.
Stay tuned for more!
I have finally decided to activate a twitter account.
Short posts and news will go to twitter. I will of course keep maintaining this blog alive for longer news about Ekiga.
As most of you know, Ekiga 4.0 is still based on older technologies like GTK+-2.0. The goal is to remove all deprecated or outdated dependancies before Ekiga 4.2.
The GTK+-3.0 porting work is now terminated. Much work has been done by Víctor Manuel Jáquez Leal from Igalia. More changes will happen in the future, for example to replace the current display system with a new one based on GStreamer and/or Cairo.
The GSettings migration has started in a separate ds-gsettings branch.
Help is welcome to replace other older technologies like HAL for example.
The legendary GNU/Linux softphone is back for more!
Three years after the 3.2 release, Ekiga 4.0 aka “The Victory Release” is finally available.
This is a major release with many major improvements.
