Mumble gets some love and an update to 1.2.4

Posted: January 9th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff, updates | Tags: , , | Comments Off on Mumble gets some love and an update to 1.2.4

Our mumble servers have not received any love for a year or so.

Yesterday I updated the two servers to 1.2.4 and updated instructions on the Mumble wiki on how to do it for CentOS 6.

In order to use them you should get a certificate from StartCom. Instructions are here.

Mumble 1.2.2 released

Posted: February 9th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff, updates | Tags: | Comments Off on Mumble 1.2.2 released

Among the news is a link in the certificate wizard to the guide written by yours truly:

http://mumble.info/certificate.php

The other news can be found here.

The bitmap has been replaced by an Avatar, that should have a 1:1 ratio, e.g. 120×120 pixels. The overlay has been revamped and renders much nicer now, and also shows the new avatars next to the name.

Mumble servers got shiny new server certificates

Posted: January 20th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff | Tags: , | Comments Off on Mumble servers got shiny new server certificates

Since I started the guide on creating StartCom Class 1 certificates in mumble, I got around to creating subdomain certificates for the mumble servers as well.

So I wrote a little HOWTO create and install a StartCom subdomain certificate in murmur. This new guide can be found on the mumble wiki:

Mumble 1.2.2 coming before the end of the month?

Posted: January 19th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff, updates | Tags: | Comments Off on Mumble 1.2.2 coming before the end of the month?

There are some irritating bugs getting fixed in 1.2.2, and a few nice new features:

http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Upcoming#1.2.2

One of the big paradigm shifts is the use of client certificates for authentication. Since I recently wrote the documentation on that on Mumble’s wiki, I thought I’d promote getting a certificate:

http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Mumble_Certificates

Most of the new features are in the current snapshot.

We will move to 1.2.2 as soon as it is released.

Mumble 1.2.1 sweetness

Posted: January 11th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff, updates | Tags: | Comments Off on Mumble 1.2.1 sweetness

Shortcuts is even easier now – you can have multiple keys bound to join channel. So pressing numpad 0-9 can get you instantly into a channel of your choice.

This is a minor, but nice feature release.

Adding whisper shortcuts bugged in Mumble 1.2.0

Posted: December 21st, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff, updates | Tags: | Comments Off on Adding whisper shortcuts bugged in Mumble 1.2.0

My handy tip about whispers showed to be a bit moot since there is a known bug in the 1.2.0 release.

The workaround is to disconnect from the server after making changes to your shortcuts, instead of just closing the application.

You can also try the latest snapshot, which fixes the bug.

All mumble servers upgraded to 1.2.0

Posted: December 17th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Tech stuff, updates | Tags: | Comments Off on All mumble servers upgraded to 1.2.0

As of now all our servers have been upgraded, and thus demand a 1.2.0 client.

I found out how to create shortcuts to separate channels directly, see the picture. What I’ve done is to bind NUM-/ to join channel and NUM-0-2 to whisper certain channels. Then I can press NUM-/ + NUM-0 to get to the root channel directly. Pretty neat.

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.
