No problem :)

If we have enough manpower to achieve it, ekiga 3.00 should be ready.
The main feature of Ekiga 3.00 will be :
- support for audio and video codecs on the form of plugins (allowing
H.263, H.264 to be used through appropriate plugins)
- a new user interface, more modern, and sexier
- SIP Presence support (to know if somebody is away, in a call, and so
- Xvideo support (finally)
- A better Win32 version thans to DirectX support (sound, video,
- IAX2 support
- And much much more

A sane evolution of 3.00, perhaps with more protocols, but the main
goals are not defined yet.

> - Do you have plans for a future release?

Sure, 3.00.

> - Do you have any goals from 2.18 that were not achieved? Why?

3.00 because of the lack of spare time for the main developers. We are
not all financed by big corporations...

Not right now. We have the right contacts for the SIP infrastructure.

No plan (no time).

More integration. There is no point in doing a desktop if there is no
integration, and currently, integration with Ekiga is rather weak.
