Sorry to keep this going with one more message, but since it seems apropos
to the question of building an accurate table of where we might expect
compatibility, and the earlier question of what people use on Ubuntu and
06:44 < HTT-Bird> I have Mint 9 LTS (based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS) on this computer
and Mumble 1.2.3 (from a PPA), but Ubuntu doesn't provide a CELT
version newer than 0.7.1 and I am trying to connect to a Mumble
server that requires 0.11.0
06:44 < HTT-Bird> what am I to do?
06:46 <@pcgod> rebuild the client with bundled-celt enabled...
06:48 < HTT-Bird> pcgod: *sigh* :< (I have built things from source, but cluttering up
what isn't supposed to be a devbox with -dev packages isn't so hot)
So it would appear that shipping with celt 0.7.1 support is actually
not sufficient on its own for people to communicate with the existing
deployed base, and this is the advice people are given in those cases,
by the developer who disabled the speex support ...
That was an exchange from today, which I only saw just now.
Like this wasn't complicated enough already,
