HI,
great work! Many useful and important improvements.

Minor mehs are:

* Nightly section needs to be adjusted https://jitsi.org/index.php/Main/Download#latestnightly still shows 2.3 as latest nightly
* should nightlies now be 2.5?
* CoreAudio: I no longer see that option in nightly 2.4.5004 only PortAudio is displayed in Preferences > Audio

That’s what I noticed with a quick glance - hope it’s useful.

Cheers :slight_smile:

Congratulations on the 2.4 release to everyone :slight_smile:

I'm having an issue switching from the nightly to stable line though.
I've pasted https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-windows.properties
in the settings and restarted Jitsi but it's not prompting me to
update on starting (or if I manually Check for Updates) and it's
showing 2.4.5000, which, looking at the downloads lists, appears to be
a nightly version and not the stable.

Hey there,

HI,
great work! Many useful and important improvements.

Thanks for your kind words!

Minor mehs are:

* Nightly section needs to be adjusted
https://jitsi.org/index.php/Main/Download#latestnightly still shows 2.3
as latest nightly
* should nightlies now be 2.5?

Yeah, those should be fixed this afternoon. Thanks for pointing them out tough!

* CoreAudio: I no longer see that option in nightly 2.4.5004 only
PortAudio is displayed in Preferences > Audio

Yes, CoreAudio has been broken right after our release. We are hoping to get it fixed soon.

Cheers,
Emil

The build of your installed Jitsi (i.e. the nightly) is newer than the
latest stable release so the installed Jitsi will not try to downgrade
to the older build (i.e. the latest stable release).

Ah OK, thanks. I'll just do a manual uninstall/reinstall then.

I'd have thought it should downgrade though, as surely switching from
stable to nightly will always result in the installed build being
newer than the stable, in which case the instructions on the Download
page about switching back to stable by changing the provisioning URI
don't make much sense as this will never work.

Great job jitsi team! Been looking forward to this.
I'm about to test out the latest stable now.

I know I've been a pain by insisting on this, but when do you plan on
having ICE/STUN for SIP?
How do people that are operating Jitsi behind NAT (likely most cases)
actually get it to talk to other endpoints behind other NATs right now?

Thanks
