That's it. We are done. Builds are now being released under the Jitsi name.
Not quite, there are still a couple of things like the IRC channel
#sip-communicator. Also jitsi conflicts sip-communicator due to the
man page not being renamed.
Unpacking jitsi (from .../jitsi_1.0-beta1-nightly.build.3381_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing
trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man1/sip-communicator.1.gz',
which is also in package sip-communicator
We didn't find a simple way of making the installers do the switch
transparently (and we didn't have the time for the complicated way )
so SIP Communicator users would now be seeing a dialog prompting them to
manually update to Jitsi. Once on the Jitsi builds, updates will
continue as before.
Build 3364 should have stayed on the server. People who try to update
now won't see the warning dialog. There wasn't much point in making a
warning dialog if it only stayed on the server briefly.
So, as I said, that's it. Feel free to spread the word now!
Now that it's beta I'll be spreading the word more.
Congrats on the progress.

Yana has just completed the revamp of our site so that we will be able
to use it for Jitsi.
I'll activate it in about an hour or so and you'll all be able to have a
look (personally I love it and am very grateful to Yana for what she has
Now ... there will be some havoc for a week or so
The application for example would remain available as SIP Communicator
for several more days.
The reason is that we would need a bit more time to prepare the auto
update procedures so that they would properly handle the change in the
name of the executables.
Also, we are currently applying for GSoC, together with Kamailio
(OpenSER) and SEMS. We are applying as Jitsi which is why we absolutely
need to change the site today.
Will update the list once the new site is up so stay tuned.
