Dear all,

Galene 0.8 is available by doing

  git clone -b galene-0.8

For more information about the Galene videoconference server, please see

The main news in this version is native support for the WHIP protocol.
There's also support for passwords hashed using BCrypt (more secure but
more CPU-intensive than the default PBKDF2) and a number of minor fixes.

The switch to VP9 didn't work out, since there are some issues with VP9
congestion control that I haven't had the leisure to debug, so VP8 is
still the default codec.

  * Added a new configuration option "publicServer".
  * Implemented the WHIP protocol (draft-ietf-wich-whip).
  * Disabled simulcast on Firefox by default.
  * Removed support for protocol version 1 (used before version 0.7)

  * Updated the activity detection code to work with newer browsers.
    Thanks to Jackson Vieira.
  * Constrained videos sent from a browser to use 4:3 aspect.
