Re: [Ekiga-list] ANNOUNCE - Ekiga 3.2.0 [STABLE] available

Thanks team for the tremendous effort! It is so encouraging to see that the address book function kept improving along with every release.

I have successfully downloaded and compiled it. It is running perfect now. and the authentication for LDAP also works.

however, i have a few questions that i could not find in the manual.

1. Filter Template.
How should the filter template be used? are there %d, %s that represents input from search?

2. using of customized attributes.
in my current ldap schema, SIP is represented by a physical number in the format of +countrycode (areacode) -SIP userid. however, the LDAP addressbook is only able to use the +countrycode as the number to call.

Hope the developers can share a bit more about how to use the newly added functions.

Thanks and Cheers
Joshua Duan

Compared to previous stable version (3.0.0), major features:

- There is now only one H.263 plugin implementing both H.263 and H.263+
- Allow several ALSA devices to have the same name

   audio codec advertised as HD Voice by the famous Polycom. It is a
   great boost in quality and interoperability

   high quality audio at 32 kHz or 48 kHz, allowing to transmit music in
   high quality, with low delay and low bitrate

   notifications of incoming calls in the roster. With software like
   kamailio or Asterisk, it allows being informed of incoming calls
   reaching your colleagues

   patches to provide state-of-the-art LDAP support in the Ekiga address
   book. The new code even supports authentication
  - Killed the gconf_test_age test, Ekiga can now finally work with
   badly installed GConf schemas
