Gnome-o-phone is an internet telephone. In other words, if you and your friend have computers with sound cards and network connections, you can use gphone to talk to each other and save on phone bills. Gphone uses GSM compression, so the data rate should be low enough to work over a reasonable modem connection. Gphone supports full duplex if your sound card does.

Release Notes: A one-line patch that fixes the infamous config button crash.
Release Notes: A fix for a bug with calculating the mic and speaker level, compiles with the new free Quicknet drivers, and checks for gsm.h and slang.h in both the Redhat and Debian locations.
Release Notes: A rudimentary GUI configuration dialog so you don't have to set up everything from the command line, a dialog to get a hostname to call, and basic support for sound I/O via Quicknet Technologies Internet PhoneJACK card.
Release Notes: The biggest user-visible change is that half duplex should finally work again. Internally, the RTP code got a major facelift. Also, there's a new mute button, primitive silence suppression, and a few other minor improvements.
Release Notes: Rewritten sound code that opens /dev/dsp only once, functional full-duplex with the OSS drivers that support it, a new .spec file to support building RPMs (comments and patches from rpm gurus are most welcome), and a new -q option to suppress debugging messages.
