Recently, we released the 1.0.13 update for the Google voice and video chat software. All current installations have begun an automatic update and should reach you within the next few days. If you do not have the plugin, you can visit http://www.google.com/chat/video and run the installer.
Here's what's new in version 1.0.13:
- Improved startup time for both voice and video calls.
- Detection and recovery for some situations that would cause the plugin to hang indefinitely, which could lead to messaging like "Detecting devices" in the settings page or "Add voice/video chat" in the roster or chat menu.
- Fixed connectivity problems caused by VMWare virtual network adapters.
You can use your Gmail account to find out what version is currently installed. Simply go to the Gmail Settings page and look under the "Chat" tab. You will see the plugin version under the "Learn more" link, in small type.
If you're on 1.0.13 and still having a problem, please report it on the Gmail voice and video chat forums.
