Ekiga 4.0 soon to be released!

Ekiga 4.0 ready

Ekiga 4.0 is ready to be released soon.

More testing needs to be done, and the documentation also needs to be update to reflect the latest changes. However, once it is done, the packaging process will start.

This is the first major release in 3 (difficult) years and the last one to rely on GTK 2.0 and GConf. If you are a hacker and want to help porting Ekiga, you are welcome.


Victoria Sandras is born on the 8th of April 2012. She is now 7 weeks old.

Victoria is born more than 5 weeks too soon, but she is going well (and we do not sleep much anymore ;-) ).

    How do you see Ekiga’s role in the post-Empathy world? Any chance the projects could merge?

    In the last time I’ve switched away from Ekiga due to several interoperability bugs with providers I’m forced to use. Just for asking, would it make sense to unify the SIP stack? Sofia-SIP is quite mature and telepathy is already using it:

    random: they are different tools.

    See “Why is Ekiga no longer the internet telephony application by default in Ubuntu?”

    Are you making any change with SIP conections, because let me tell, set up ekiga to work with my SIP Asterisk Network is a pain in the ass, i rather use Twinkle, but i like Ekiga’s design.

    David: there is nothing much simpler than setting up ekiga with asterisk… I don’t understand your complaint !
