    Nice! :D

    How long till Mumble 1.2.4 will be released?

  2. Mike Johnson says:

    It looks like from the Upcoming features article that there may be support for Opus in 1.2.4, is that right?

    • .D0T says:

      It is already integrated into current snapshots and will be part of 1.2.4 as stated in the wiki.

      • Brazzer says:

        Will 1.2.4 also make changes as promised in ‘for the record’?

        “Note that due to an internal API restriction our preprocessors currently only operate on 16bit PCM data. This is going to change soon which will make our whole processing pipeline 48Khz/32bit float.”

        That along with opus, and exclusive input would make mumble 1.2.4 audio quality quite excellent I think.

  3. Sheep says:

    Isn’t 1.3.0 better as it’s somehow a “major change”.

  4. nixon says:

    Any chance to beta test 1.2.4? Any chance of a release date or some kind of progress made?
