‘Mumble for iOS’ 1.2.3 is buggy when running on iOS 7.1

A word of warning: ‘Mumble for iOS’ 1.2.3 is incredibly unusable on iOS 7.1 – if you depend on it, you should probably not update to iOS 7.1 just yet.

There is a problem with audio subsystem, which is causing it to endlessly try to restart itself. This manifests itself via iOS’s ‘red bar’ (signalling that an app is using background audio) toggling itself on and off very fast (even when inside the app!), making the app unusable.

We’ve identified the problem, and we’re working on a fix. If you’ve already updated to iOS 7.1, fear not! We’ve also found a workaround which, while inconvenient, should help you work around the issue until a proper fix has been released.


Version numbering change

Mumble’s version numbers have been a great source of confusion for a long time. Version 1.1.8 being incompatible with 1.2.0, only incrementing the last place of the version number even though big changes were made and so on. This will change.

TL;DR: The next version will be 1.3.0 not 1.2.6. The next feature release after that 1.4.0 and so on.


Mumble 1.2.5

The Mumble team has released version 1.2.5 of the Mumble VoIP application.

This new version contains two important client-side security fixes. We advise our users to download this update as soon as possible from our SourceForge downloads page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mumble/files/Mumble/1.2.5/

This release contains no new features. For all practical purposes, it is a bug-fix release on top of 1.2.4.


Mumble for iOS 1.2.3

The Mumble team has released version 1.2.3 of the iOS Mumble client.

This new version contains two important client-side security fixes, and we advise users to download this update from the App Store as soon as possible.


Mumble for iOS 1.2.2

This Wednesday, to coincide with the release of iOS 7, we released Mumble for iOS 1.2.2. This is a primarily a release to fix incompatibilities with iOS 7, but it also includes a few other oft-requested goodies.


Mumble for iOS 1.2.1

Today, we’ll be releasing Mumble for iOS 1.2.1. This is a minor bug fix release to the 1.2 release we did earlier this month.

We found a nasty race condition which could cause crashes when the audio subsystem of the app was started or restarted. This bug seemed to happen very often on 4th generation iPod Touch devices, but could happen on all iOS devices with some bad luck.


Mumble for iOS 1.2

Earlier today, we released Mumble for iOS 1.2.

This release is compatible with the 1.2.4 protocol and includes support for the Opus codec.

It also fixes many of the most irritating bugs people have found and reported with the previous release.


Mumble 1.2.4 released

The Mumble team is proud to announce the release of version 1.2.4 of the Mumble VoIP application.

With this new version we are introducing the revolutionary Opus audio codec, Windows 8 support and many other improvements over our last stable release (see the Mumble 1.2.4 wiki page for more information). Opus is now the primary audio codec of choice for Mumble.


Mumble 1.2.4 RC

Thanks to your help we have been able to resolve quite a few issues since entering beta for 1.2.4. We have now reached a point where we feel confident putting out a release candidate for the new version.


Announcing Mumble 1.2.4 beta

The Mumble team is proud to announce the first beta of Mumble 1.2.4.

This is a big step towards the next stable release in the 1.2 series.
