Vodia News: Release of Version 5.2.6

Date: 6/8/2015

A few months after the last release we have released a new version 5.2.6.

The main point of this release is the support for the Vodia App. Although the app store shows just a few hundred downloads (and we t expect explosive growth here), this app release is an important milestone:

  • The App is using WebRTC for the audio communication. We believe that WebRTC has become unstoppable, not only within the browser but also increasingly in dedicated applications, such as the Vodia Phone.
  • Customers simply want an app on the check list. Those who go out and sell PBX to end customers know what I am talking about. Even though only a few are actually using it, having it on the feature list is a must have these days.
  • While the version 1.0 and 1.1 are not perfect, the code is under our control and will evolve over time. I believe the way the project is set up, it will be maturing over time until the day when people are using only VoIP on mobile endpoints.

There are a few other minor points in this release that are more of maintenance nature. Apart from the cell phone app, we have also entered the more secure realm of ZRTP with this release. At this point we support only end-to-end encryption; we are not sure how much sense it makes to also support the PBX mode in ZRTP as we already have a trust-based possibility with TLS and SRTP. But we are definitively interested in learning more about improving privacy in business environments. Let us how if you are interested in the topic.
