[Ekiga-devel-list] Ekiga 3.00

Hi all,

After Julien's e-mail, and Jan's recent e-mails about various handlers,
I think, it is the appropriate time to send an e-mail about what I would
like to see in Ekiga 3.00, and when I would like to see it.

Ekiga 3.00

* Ekiga 3.00 should have a new core backend for contacts using Julien's
code. This will allow more fancy things. Ekiga should be based on the
notion of "contact" and not anymore on the notion of "calling".

* It should have a new menu (Contact) instead of (Call). The main user
interface will be a roster. The address book will (perhaps, perhaps not)
be replaced by a search window allowing you to search for contacts in
various sources and add them to your roster.

* The roster will support SIP Presence and messaging. It will be stable.
When connected to an Asterisk server, it will show you who is talking
and who is not.

* Ekiga will be able to detect IP addresses changes, when network
interfaces appear or disappear. It will not complain anymore when it is
started without any network interface.

* Ekiga will be able to detect when an USB headset or camera is plugged,
and propose you to use it.

* Ekiga will run on windows.

* Ekiga will support the IAX2 protocol.

* Ekiga will support the H.263 video codec.

* A new manual needs to be written 

* Better NAT support

* New configuration assistant

* Will support XVideo output


* It will have a new design

* It will support presence (not easy to achieve!)

>From the above, nothing is finished. When I say "nothing", I really
mean, nothing. So, there are the areas where you can help. I think that
with the current development rythm, Ekiga 3.00 will be released 3 years
after Ekiga 2.00.
