OpenMeetings 1.9.0 available

Version 1.9.0 is probably the last major release before OpenMeetings will become a project of the Apache Software Foundation. 1.9.0 has over 10 new features. For example you can use webcams with multiple resolutions from very small 4:3 to very large 16:9. Or polls can be saved and poll results are available as pie-chart. Another major improvement enables you to mute other microphones one-by-one and additionally you can give yourself exclusively the micro and mute everybody else with a single click. Further you can run OpenMeetings now completely over SSL using HTTPS and RTMPS (Flash Streaming over SSL). For a complete list please review our changelog.

  • Run OpenMeetings over SSL using HTTPS and RTMPS see RTMPSandHTTPS
  • Rename the complete application webapp path see CustomizingWebappName
  • rtmpT (rtmp over HTTP Tunneling) working again
  • Save polls: You can now save polls, delete polls and close polls. Also poll results are displayed as pie-charts.
  • Mute any user: You can mute yourself. Additionally moderators can also mute other microphones. Mute status is displayed in user-list and status icons in video pod and on top of the user list
  • Give exclusive microphone: Mute everybody except yourself with a single click. The User can click on his video pod (or press F12), if he has the needed rights, his micro is unmuted while everybody else is muted. The moderator can additionally give the right to have the functionality to "Give exclusive microphone" to to any user and/or can also directly click on any other participant's video to "Give exclusive microphone" to this user.
  • You can now see in your own video pod not only the green light but also the full activity meter indicating your loudness
  • You can now choose between multiple resolutions for the video, remote video pods are synced to the size too. With different dimension (4:3, 16:9). Does also reduce needed bandwidth to use exactly the supported resolution and you can choose smaller video sizes to save bandwidth. You can also change the available resolutions and default selection in the config.xml
  • Invalid invitation hashs now show in the error message why and in which time period they are exactly valid
  • Refactored calendar server side code to use java.util.Timezone everywhere. The application now stores all times in the server time. Only the backup contains timestamps so you could potentially export in one time zone and import into a server of another without issues.
  • Changed calendar E-Mail and fixed iCal invitation in Gmail to display correctly
  • Calendar meeting reminder email is now send 15 minutes upfront (15 minutes can be changed in configuration)
  • Default room size for conference rooms created via calendar is now 50 (default room size can be changed in configuration)

  • Fix calendar if first-day-in-week is configured to be Monday instead of Sunday (default)
  • JUnit tests now run integrated in Eclipse and on the Nightly Build Server see JUnitTestings
  • Apache RAT is integrated to handle some parts of the code audit when importing our code to Apache Incubator SVN
  • Oracle available as DB configuration see Configuration_Oracle
