Hi, after 2 years since my last serious attempt to get used to Jitsi and its pecularities/bugs, now I'm again trying to ditch skype in favor of jitsi. I use it for a week or so as my main messenger (still alongside skype though). But there is one thing that bugs me to the level of stopping using it altogether.
If someone calls me and I miss the call (being away from the computer) there is absolutely no clue in the tray icon that I've missed calls. I cannot allow (afford) to stay unnotified of these. I cannot remember to regularly open the main window and look at the History button for red missed calls.
Jitsi should mark or change its tray icon (I'm on Windows 7) to alert us if there are any missed events. I keep it in the tray only, all the time.
Jitsi seems a bit better than back in 2013 but just a bit. Still it's the most potentially appealing client that I want to see get better and one day to be able to use it reliably.
If you are after a professional client, this functionality should be there. Missing a call for hours or days and not even suspecting you missed a call could be very damaging.
Two more glitches.
1) The history of calls (after clicking the clock button) loads exceptionally slow, even when there are 20-30 entries. I cannot imagine if there are hundreds!
2) If I receive a text message, the chat window opens Ok, but the flashing in the taskbar continues indefinitely. This is very annoying. It should act like every other program, at least an option to flash 3 times and stop (with the flashing color stuck until activated).
And by the way, are you going to provide a proper forum for these requests/reports etc.? Mailing lists are very cumbersome for todays users and not only - it's a very antiquated and convoluted way to stay in touch with potentially helping users/reporters etc.
