I sent this to the users mailing list earlier, but it did not seem to
get posted. Resending...
Hello, I've been keeping an eye on Jitsi for a while, and I'd like to
say nicely done. It's definitely a program I'd like to use though I'm
waiting for the 2.0 release. I've decided to try out a nightly build.
I'm using v1.1.4275.9988 64-bit on Windows 7, and I am confused about
Firstly, if you go to Jitsi main window and menu: Tools => Options =>
Accounts tab => click the Add button. I notice that the "Add new
account" window appears briefly, then suddenly vanishes behind the
existing options window. I can move both windows around, but I can't
bring the new account window in front of the options window because it
always slides behind it. I think this is a bug. Can anyone confirm?
Secondly I have some questions about the encryption. In the video
tutorial on your documentation page (3rd video about OTR) I heard that
the lady suggests the OTR fingerprint be verified by using some other
channel like a phone call. Is this true? I always thought the OTR
protocol uses the socialist millionaire authentication to avoid having
to manually compare fingerprints, unlike ZRTP.
I am also confused about all the encryption options. Can I request
that some documentation be made available about the various things
that can be configured? I understand what OTR and ZRTP are supposed to
do, but what the heck are all these options in the ZRTP Ninja window?
What are the "Trusted MitM" and "SAS signature processing" options
supposed to do when (un)ticked? They seem to be unticked by default,
should I enable them? What's the recommended setup for the other
options in the ZRTP ninja window. They're all ticked. Is this okay the
way it is?
Finally, the "chat" part in the security tab (main options window)
does not seem to allow me to generate a fingerprint - the generate
button is greyed out, and there are no accounts available in the
drop-down listbox. I used to be able to generate fingerprints in the
past like this. I have a single google talk account present.
