WengoPhone 2.1rc1 has been released today. We migrated the build system to the CMake and added an abstraction layer called owbuild for WengoPhone. It compiles just fine under Linux, MacOSX and Windows on x86, x86_64 and ppc. The last weekend I have fixed a lot of problematic warnings to be sure it works just fine under x86_64 now.

Back to WengoPhone. It has some nice new features.

  • Secure voice calls using AES 128 bit encryption (Wengo <--> Wengo)
  • The ability to configure a SIP account on any SIP server
  • Massive stability enhancement on Mac and Linux
  • Several usability improvements

WengoPhone 2.1rc1 RPMs for openSUSE 10.2 are available at Packman, here.

If you have some problems with sound, install the portaudio package from Factory. You can get it here.

  1. This is the first Wengo version, which i was able to phone with!
    The Video Function did also work.

    A bit more delay than in skype and the file transfer did not work.

    I think they are on the right way!

  2. As this client is SIP compliant, how do you compare it with GizmoPhone …. wanted to know your opinion.

    In the meantime I will get one from Packman’s repo.
