Update on Jitsi Stable
During last week we received the news about Jitsi, on our opinion, one of the most advance Free Software videoconferencing platform have released a series of upgrades on different components of their infrastructure on the server side and also on the client side for mobiles.
These changes are improving the stability, security and code cleanup as some complete implementations were rewritten from scratch now on Java, such as Jibri, the streaming platform that works along the Jitsi-meet and Jitsi Videobridge infrastructure.
Among the most remarkable changes are,
- bwe: add ability to choose REMB or TCC for bandwidth estimation
- toolbox: extensive code cleanups / refactor
- video-quality-label: show the correct quality information for the on-stage participant
- screen-sharing: fix it so it works on Firefox
- misc: remove dead code
- Updates lib-jitsi-meet to 3077772
Also there was a rebuild of the web interface that clears and improves the order of the elements used to participate on the videoconferencing.
As part of all these changes there are several changes that consolidate Jitsi as the indisputable leader of videoconferencing and telecommunications build over a complete Libre Software platform, we widely recommend the upgrade of your systems to introduce these improvements on this release.
Don’t forget that if you have our maintenance service, this updates are already applied on your systems for your convenience and productivity.
