Our friend Emil Ivov checked in from Bulgaria to share the progress of the Jitsi project. We’ve been following the project since it was called SIP Communicator. The more recent April 2011 discussion is here. Here are some of the subjects covered.
* Jitsi recently added support for Audio and Video Calls with GTalk
* Differences between standard XMPP/Jingle and Google’s variant (aka Gingle)
* Incompatibility with Google’s telephony mechanisms
* Google’s pseudo TCP
* Ongoing in Jitsi: an Android port.
* Security, encryption
* multi-party conferencing
