What are your plans for GNOME 2.20 (next 4 months, before feature and UI freezes)?
If we have enough manpower to achieve it, ekiga 3.00 should be ready. The main feature of Ekiga 3.00 will be :
- support for audio and video codecs on the form of plugins (allowing H.263, H.264 to be used through appropriate plugins)
- a new user interface, more modern, and sexier
- SIP Presence support (to know if somebody is away, in a call, and so on)
- Xvideo support (finally)
- A better Win32 version thans to DirectX support (sound, video, display)
- IAX2 support
- And much much more
What are your plans for GNOME 2.22 (next year)?
A sane evolution of 3.00, perhaps with more protocols, but the main goals are not defined yet.
Do you have plans for a future release?
Do you have any goals from 2.18 that were not achieved? Why?
3.00 because of the lack of spare time for the main developers. We are not all financed by big corporations...
Is there something that is really missing in our infrastructure or platform that would help you?
Not right now. We have the right contacts for the SIP infrastructure.
Do you have plans to work on other modules not maintained by you? What are they?
No plan (no time).
Do you have any GNOME-wide goals suggestions for the next releases?
More integration. There is no point in doing a desktop if there is no integration, and currently, integration with Ekiga is rather weak.
