I was just reading the official announcement about 8.10:

When I noticed:

Latest Gnome 2.24 Desktop Environment
The GNOME desktop environment project releases its latest version which is incorporated into Ubuntu 8.10. New features include a new instant messaging client, a built-in time tracker, the latest Ekiga 3.0 video and audio conferencing tool, improved file management and toolbars plus better support for multiple monitor use with the ability to set screen resolution by monitor.


..oops or am I missing something? :confused:

ekiga 3 is one of the features of the gnome 2.24, hence it is mentioned in the gnome release notes, which have been copy and pasted into the ubuntu release notes. but it looks like ekiga 3 was too late for the version freeze (gnome is exempt from the version freeze).

Well i think its a very good piece of software.
It does do what it supposed to.
And actually i can call to landline and gsm as well for a very good price.

I like ekiga and some of my friends like it because i told them about it ;)
