Mumble 1.2 now in beta

Posted: November 13th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff | Tags: | Comments Off on Mumble 1.2 now in beta

Mumble 1.2 has now reached Beta status. I have upgraded our internal server to this release and tried out the new beta client today.

Get it here.

The new 1.2 protocol is not compatible with 1.1.X, so server and clients should be upgraded at approximately the same time. I don’t see us moving to the 1.2 on the real servers until 1.2 reaches gold. However, the 1.2 client contains an extra binary that is 1.1.x compatible, so you can install the beta client if you wish, and still be able to use our servers.

One sweet feature with 1.2 is that it contains authorization using public/private keys instead of passwords, and you can actually register a user from within the client itself. I just tried it out and it works great.

Windows 7 installed, bye bye Vista..

My employer supplied me with a Windows 7 64 bit enterprise ISO, so I followed this nice guide, to be able to install Win7 from a USB stick. The install completed in well under half an hour.

The memory footprint is definitely lower than Vista (which is the absolutely suckiest OS I’ve come across), and the whole system feels snappier. If it wasn’t for gaming I’d much rather run Fedora on the rig though.

The brand new, highly anticipated custom campaign Dead Before Dawn has been installed on the Left 4 Dead servers.

It took about 30 seconds until a lobby connected to the Versus server =)
