I went to FOSDEM for the first year as a simple visitor. After several years spent organizing the event and making it grow to one of the major hackers event in the world, I can only tell that I am satisfied of the accomplished work. FOSDEM is still getting bigger and bigger and the community part is gaining importance over other aspects.
This year was also my first CEBit. I was quite surprised to meet Julien at the airport. It was a pretty interesting show. The most important part probably happened when discussing with colleagues, because we had pretty interesting ideas.
Ekiga 3.00 is moving quite quickly thanks to the hard work of its contributors. We are not that far of a production ready BETA of Ekiga 3.00. I spent part of this week-end improving the roster, but also the general look of Ekiga 3.00.
I decided to put the video next to the roster and dialpad. It does not look like other VoIP software, but I think it is a more convenient approach because it allows using the dialpad and the roster (to transfer calls or establish new calls in future releases) while being in a call.
I am not sure if it will be a popular or unpopular move, but here are two screenshots. Feel free to post comments.
