    Jitsi is great - it offers encrypted chat and encrypted audio chat. But the current stable and latest nightly both require Java 1.6 installed. So while offering security features, requiring such an old Java version and not working with the latest Java 1.8 basically ruins security. I'm not sure what the thought process behind this is, devs talk about priorities. But then again if this isn't a high priority, I do not know, what is. So one star for the current weak security situation with the very old Java 1.6 version. Back to 5 stars when that is resolved.

    Does this work with Google Voice via the Internet, or do I have to sign up with a separate SIP provider?

    Don't know if phoning home could be a problem. But the app works very good.

    I tried to switch my Yahoo contact from Adium to Jitsi. The groups and the contacts are only part of mine and no one of my online contacts is shown as online.

    We need Jitsi for iOS now! ;) Not much ZRTP support on iOS, none that are completely free, anyhow -- the two free ones require a paid proprietary PBX subscription...

    I want to like this app, but on a Mac Pro tower you cannot change the audio output setting. It defaults to 'Digital Output' and attempts to change it do nothing.
