Thanks so much for the recent improvments! I love this project and just
want it to be the best it can become Here are some notes I took over
the last few weeks during chatting with jitsi. I think at least some of
them should be small changes that could have a lot of impact. Maybe I'm
not the only one who noticed:
* 1st: It'd be nice to be able to change the global presence-status for
all my accounts from within the little notification-symbol-menu (or how
that is called).
* 2nd: When adding a new account of whatever service jitsi supports, to
my accounts, there comes this dialogbox to add an account. And the first
thing that is displayed, it just a drop-down menu. Not somehow directly
the choices of services you support. Okay, maybe the dropdown menu makes
sense, but then maybe you could make that very dropdown-box to be
*not-scrollable*. I litterlally even went "where is SIP? wasn't it even
called SIP communicator?" for the first time. Then I realized, I had to
But even on my tiny Netbook, there would be no need for that box to be
* 3rd: When starting an OTR-session for the *first* time with a new
contact, jisti writes some nice notes about what is happening and that
you should authenticate the other person's fingerprint.
The way to the "OTR -> USER -> authenticate partner" menu is really far
(at least for an (hopefully) average user)! Would it be possible to
*directly* place a link to that authenticate-box into these text-notes?
Some decent hightlighting of the fingerprints in there would also
improve the situation
* 4th: While typing, I see jitsi saying "she's currently typing" or "she
has interruped her typing" (I don't use the english version, but you
know what I mean). I asked a few people now while we were writing and
all of them also thought that this is a *little* much. In case my
partner starts/stops/starts writing, this text changes all the time and
catches my attention. I'd suggest to either leave the "interrupts
typing" message out completely and just make the "typing" message
dissapear; or make it a configurable opt-in.
* 5th: The simleys. That's really the least-priority suggestion I have
for now But I just don't like them so much. Anybody thinking the
same? What'd be the requirements for smiley icons? Just in case I'd find
someone who'd give it a try and you'd take suggestions.
