We have recently added a number of new features to GroupWorld.net, including:
- Transparent image support, as seen in the protractor tool of the math tutoring example.
- Auto-adjusting microphone volume, making it easier for users to use the voice conferencing and reducing problems with echo and delays.
- The text chat window now supports clickable links.
To see these new features, just click on the following links (you may have to re-download the plugin in order to see the transparency feature):http://www.groupworld.net/new_conference.html
Firefox 3.6 and Chrome plugins
Firefox recently changed the way that plugins work in Firefox 3.6, meaning that old plugins did not work at all. We have rewritten the GroupWorld.net and Groupboard Voice Conference plugins so that they now work on Firefox 3.6.
In addition, GroupWorld.net now also supports more browsers, including:
- Chrome under Windows
- Firefox and Safari 4.0 on Mac OSX 10.5 and 10.6, including 64-bit Safari.
