I'm the author of the GnomeMeeting project.

I'm hacking in my spare time to have fun, and GnomeMeeting is the way to have fun while coding.

I'm also one of the Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting (aka FOSDEM) organisers. This event is free and has the purpose to promote the DEVELOPMENT (and not the "use of" as in many meetings) of Free software.

I have moved my blog to http://www.seconix.com to allow more flexibility. Goodbye Advogato and thanks!

I have coded all the holidays on OPAL to improve SIP support and fix various problems. I have almost finished adding support for RFC3842 (Message Waiting Indication when you receive a Voicemail). I'm testing this with Asterisk, but unfortunately it is not always compliant. I have also added the ability to use several registrars at the same time. Those 2 new features do not exist yet in any SIP softphone under Linux.
I'll be speaking in Geilenkirchen at the Open Source Telephony Summit this week end. I hope the summit will be a good opportunity to progress on OPAL and on GnomeMeeting SIP. I also need to submit a GUADEC paper in time...
We have finally received the bios and pics for all speakers, we will start working on the definitive schedule soon. Don't forget that there is a GNOME developers' room with a specific schedule this year, so if you want to present a talk, it is not too late yet
Is there a life besides adding SIP support in GnomeMeeting?
GnomeMeeting 1.2
The release went successfully and we got very few bug reports regarding the number of downloads. We will probably make a 1.2.1 release in a few days/weeks with better IPv6 support as there were a few problems.

GnomeMeeting SIP

Things are getting along nicely. I just finished implementing Call Forwarding in SIP and fixing a few problems in OPAL. I'm now spending most of my time on OPAL and not on GnomeMeeting, GnomeMeeting being only a way to test my changes. There are still many things left to do, but I'm progressing quickly. Having SIP support in GnomeMeeting is really exciting.


Nothing new here. Jonita is working all the time, so we don't have much time to spend together. Hopefully things will be better in January.

Finally! GnomeMeeting 1.2 has been released with ZeroConf support and Evolution integration. There are several other features that can be checked on the main website.

I can now concentrate full-time on the 2.00 branch that will support SIP as main protocol.

GnomeMeeting and Zeroconf
I received a patch that implements ZeroConf support into GnomeMeeting. It has been applied and will be available in the 1.2 release. That is very convenient to discover GnomeMeeting friends on your network. That was an interesting idea given by Alex here. I'm happy to see it was so fast to implement it.

GnomeMeeting and GAIM integration

Several people have showed an interest to see GnomeMeeting integrated with popular instant messengers. Julien Puydt had started coding a DBUS component for GnomeMeeting and that component will be available in the 1.2 release. He had also started creating a plugin for GAIM, so that GAIM Linux users can start videoconferences from their Instant Messenger. He tried to get help from GAIM developers, discussed with them and their answer was clear, they are not interested in that plugin and won't support it. <irony>Nice example of cooperation.</irony> That would have been great even if it wouldn't have been compatible with Windows clients, at least as long as GnomeMeeting doesn't support SIP.

GnomeMeeting and SIP

It's progressing!


I had two superb evenings last week with two of my best friends. We had two days off so we decided to spend the evenings together and it was really fun. The bad side is that it remembered me the time when I was still a student, unfortunately that will never happen again...
