Jitsi 1.0 released

Version 1.0 of Jitsi, an audio/video and chat communicator, has been released. This comes after four months of active development, bug hunting and fixing.

Jitsi offers several advanced communication features, including secure video calls using ZRTP, conferencing, chat, file transfer, and cross-platform remote desktop sharing. It is available under the LGPL license.

The list of new features and bugs fixed in this stable release is a very long one, but here are the highlights:

  • Switched from Java Media Framework (JMF) to Freedom for Media in Java (FMJ)
  • Support for cross-protocol conference calls
  • Incoming calls can be answered into an existing conference call
  • Separate calls can be merged into a single conference call
  • Hot plug support – new audio devices can be plugged and unplugged during a call
  • DNSSEC support
  • Experimental support for video conferencing

You may download Jitsi for your operating system or distribution from here. If you are using Debian, Linux Mint, Ubuntu or any other distribution derived from Debian, you might want to read Install Jitsi 1.0 in Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu. This image shows the supported protocols.
