Just a brief note, gaim-vv is completely dead now. Now work will be taking place on our cvs tree. We're close to making the merge with gaim's 2.x development tree.
There is now gaim 2.0.0 b1 and 2 ...
is vv team still working ??? or is now completly dead and there is no hope to get vv ??
b3 .. still scared :(
Last I heard, voice and video were no longer slated for the 2.0 release of gaim. What then? Why doesnt someone update this site? I think many of us are really hoping to have voice and video in gaim and since gaim 2 won't have it, we would like gaim-vv developers to continue working on gaim-vv and to make releases... if that is possible.
It's been dead for so long many of the users (myself included) have given up on it. I don't know why they don't just declare the project officially dead and be done with it.
I thought google talk w voice capability is just jabber with the libjingle library?
This is a shame.. that it seems that video is NEVER mentioned in any official communiques anymore on the main branch..
How about for the summer of code stuff they put video in?
For future directions for video+sound in IM, check out http://farsight.freedesktop.org/wiki/ Pidgin (the new name for Gaim) will use this framework for its video/sound support. Farsight has currently been prototyped on the OLPC (http://blog.printf.net/articles/2006/12/19/olpc-videoconferencing)
