Description : framework for VoIP and Instant Messaging (SIP and google interoperable)
Tapioca is a framework for Voice over IP (VoIP) and Instant Messaging (IM). Its main goal is to provide an easy way for developing and using VoIP and IM services in any kind of application. It was designed to be cross-platform, lightweight, thread-safe, having mobile devices and applications in mind.
Tapioca's main goals are:
* Create a solution that integrates all components used by VoIP and IM applications in a single, reliable and easy to use framework, which is able to work on different platforms.
* Spare resources, providing central services for multiple applications. Eg.: The control of all incoming and outgoing SIP requests are managed by the SIP service, avoiding the creation of one SIP stack and allocation of a network port for each SIP-based application.
* Reduce the overhead of control layers and library dependencies.
Aditionnal Info :
Main Site provides precompiled debs for debian unstable (apt),
I tested those and it works under gnome, failed on standard xfce (dbus)
I was able to phone to a googletalk client (windows).
If noone work on it I'll see what I can do, ( http://rzr.online.fr/q/dpkg )
since it is a good alternative to closed source skype, ekiga is also a good option.
