November 23, 2016 - version 2.16.56 - Bug fixes and minor improvements

We're continuing our focus on crushing the little nagging issues that drive us batty. You know, those things you look at and think "some day I'll get around to it!"  Today, well all the todays of this month and next are "that day."

October 25, 2016 - version 2.16.51 - Improvements to WebRTC (computer) audio

With this minor update we're continuing our work to improve the quality of WebRTC audio. We're also extending the Supported Browser's page to include a "test my audio" function.

Notes:

  • Use Twilio's NAT Traversal (STUN/TURN) service for WebRTC connections (browser uses only if needed)
  • Add the "test call" button to /browser_support page

October 18, 2016 - version 2.16.50 - Bug fixes and minor improvements

This is a minor update to improve the quality of the WebRTC audio bridge for users behind a firewall, connected via VPN. Our key learning: we need to provide fallbacks for both STUN and TURN. It's complicated and jargonistic (is that a word?), but also important.

Notes:
  • Updates to the turbobridge test page so we can see whether the Twilio or Xirsys TURN server solves VPN users' problems
  • Addition of STUN servers to the webcall configuration in meetings (may help someone)
  • A fix to make RSVP email notifications go to facilitators who've requested them
