The google voice doesn't work.
I was able to call only one number and have it work, every other number I have tried, local or 800, has failed.
I can call them all with no problem from the web interface on google.

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 really want to like Jitsi, but phoning home/auto updating without even asking is really creepy and totally not okay. It's sad that this stuff now creeps into open source software, too.

J-M- please elaborate. How is Jitsi phoning home? Auto-update? I've not noticed that so far. Maybe you can explain some more so we can learn and try to understand if our point is valid. Thx :)

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...

There is an Android version though. Ugh! Apple needs to get with the times to allow innovation on iOS!:

"Is there an iPhone/iPad version of Jitsi?
No. Due to the restrictions imposed by the platform it is highly unlikely this answer is going to change."

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.

I know. But often don't have the time to enter all the details. You can do that if you want, whenever you stumble upon a comment, naming a new version. It's just to let the MU-team know, that a new version exists.

Maybe MU staff could delete "new version" comment clutter after updating listings?

Hm, they don't bother me. There are far more worse comments that I'd truly consider clutter. I'm glad if users inform MU of new versions. Being up-to-date is the whole point of this site so those are rather important infos.

But I also don't mind the hint being deleted once the listing is updated. I just don't see them as negative.

Very cool news: Jitsi now offers sparkle updates and should you decide to install the nightly version, you'll also receive new nightly updates if you want.

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.
