We consider that the most important change with this release is that support for Ubuntu 16.04 ends .

Continuing with Bionic (18.04) and Focal (20.04) as the supported versions.


New Jitsi Meet interface

So with a new interface, great improvements in the efficiency of the platform and better resolutions, Jitsi Meet 2.0.5765 is currently the best version available on platforms based on free software.

Remember that if you want to use the version available online free of charge, you can use it on the site offered by the Jitsi Meet team and 8×8, Inc. at meet.jit.si,

On the other hand, if you require a customized solution through self-hosting, we invite you to give QJI 6.0 a test.
