Hi!

“As of January 1, 2017 the patent terms of most Licensed Patents under
the G.729 Consortium have expired.

With regard to the unexpired Licensed Copyrights and Licensed Patents
of the G.729 Consortium Patent License Agreement, the Licensors of the
G.729 Consortium, namely Orange SA, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone
Corporation and Université de Sherbrooke (“Licensors”) have agreed to
license the same under the existing terms on a royalty-free basis
starting January 1, 2017.

For current Licensees of the G.729 Consortium Patent License Agreement,
no reports and no payments will be due for Licensed Products Sold or
otherwise distributed as of January 1, 2017.”

This means that G.729 can now be officially included in Jitsi.
