Its Version W0.65b1 on

Windows Users, (send bug reports to!!!

We're pre-releasing a beta version of CU-SeeMe for Windows that has
audio RECEIVE capability ONLY. We're releasing this version earlier than
we'd like to (there are many known bugs and unfinished features), since we've
detected a certain amount of interest in having whatever audio capability
currently exists made available whether finished or not. So, if you don't
want to deal with quirks and bugs, please wait for a later release.

There are lots of new features in this version - mostly:

* UI things like button bars for video windows, a participants list, new
menu items, updated dialogs and preferences, updated help.

* Audio receive capability.

Known bugs:

* The Participants Window sometimes does not update correctly, close and
re-open to fix this. It has other 'quirks' too.

* The button-bar under the video windows are sometimes not drawn in. Some
of the values displayed in the dialogs under the button bar are not drawn

* The output volume control starts at zero on Sound blasters and perhaps
other cards.

Reporting Problems / Observations.

Since we know that there are still bugs in this version please don't
report bugs that look pretty obvious or don't prevent you from doing
something. Of course, please report any GPF's that you see along with
the address indicated.

The CU-SeeMe-l list is intended mostly for discussion of Video
Conferencing issues and comments on features / functionality / performance.
So, please send bug reports to:

instead of to the list.
