Linphone 3.0 Adds Features

Oct 14, 2008

Linphone, the audio and video software for Internet telephony based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), includes extensive enhancements in its version 3.0.

Visible changes to the product are in its graphical interface, based on Gtk+, which runs on Linux as well as Windows XP and offers the same functions on both platforms. Firewall workarounds for double SIP registration and Simple Traversal of UPD through NATs (STUN) help to ensure undisturbed traffic. The new plugin for the H.264 codecs allows for better use of bandwidth and provides higher quality video; it is based on the x264 encoding project. Many bug fixes are also included. Information and downloads of Linphone are on their website.
