[jitsi-users] Jitsi Desktop stable builds


#1

I've noticed that the downloads for Jitsi for windows, rpm, linux and
macosx all haven't been updated since march of 2015, yet the git shows
active contributions to the code. Should we be using the pre-compiled
installers or building our own? Just curious why the the installers haven't
been updated in almost 2 years.

Thanks

Hi,

There was no new stable release for Jitsi desktop client in a while.
But I know Ingo is actively working on preparing a new stable release.
You can always try the nightlies, which have the latest.

Damian,

Will Ingo's new stable release include Jibri?

Cheers,

Hi,

Here we are talking about Jitsi desktop client, and it has nothing to
do with jibri or any other jitsi-meet component.

Hi,

2.9.5544 break with previose behavior, because it quits, when you press
the "x" to iconize the main window.

I assume you're on Linux where it's intended behavior. See this:
http://lists.jitsi.org/pipermail/users/2017-January/012121.html

If you enable a tray implementation, clicking X will hide the window again. Without a tray icon, you can enable the option "Minimize instead of close or hide" (Tools->Options->General)

Ok, works. But, why is the working TrayIcon gone ? It worked under
Cinnamon, just Gnome made the mistake.

I'm not sure what you mean.

The Java implementation is based on GtkMenuItem, which uses XEmbed, and this won't work on the majority of the desktop environments anymore. The replacement on these DE is AppIndicator.

Gnome 3 doesn't have trays anymore at all, neither GtkMenuItem nor AppIndicator. This is a (stupid) Gnome decision and nothing an app can do about.

If you prefer or need to use GtkMenuItem for your DE, it is still there: select Default as the tray implementation.
AppIndicator has a fallback to GtkMenuItem though.

For the full history of this nightmare see issue 192 on Github.

Ingo

Freundliche Grüsse,
