Ekiga, the long-standing Linux "softphone" VoIP program for GNOME on Linux, hasn't seen a major release since Ekiga 3.2 three years ago. Arriving today fortunately is Ekiga 4.0, which is codenamed "The Victory Release", and packs a huge number of changes for this open-source telephony program.

Ekiga 4.0 presents a completely new user-interface, better integration with GNOME 3.x, a new assistant page, a new PulseAudio plug-in, support for SILK/G.722.1/G.722.2 audio codecs, H.264 video optimizations, RTP TOS support, call auto-answer support, partial support for multiple video streams, improved audio accuracy, improved notifications, many fixes throughout, and a whole lot more.

All of the release highlights plus download links for this open-source "softphone" Ekiga 4.0 program can be found at Ekiga.org.
