RC1 Released, iPhone/Android Coming Soon!
by Florence on May 10, 2011

Greetings...

We are pleased to announce the release of TeamSpeak 3.0.0-rc1 today. RC1 means "release candidate 1" so this is in fact a major release, which is now available to all users via the client's auto-update feature, or via our downloads page for new installations. RC1 marks the beginning of the end of open beta. This means you can expect TeamSpeak 3.0 Final to be released in the coming weeks.

RC1 addresses numerous issues, bug fixes, and contains several improvements and changes over prior versions, some of the most substantial of which include:
  • A complete rewrite of the sound system resulting in improved compatibility, performance, and new possibilities for future enhancements to TeamSpeak.
  • New default sound pack although we are still working on the effect filters.
  • Basic vs. Advanced permissions system toggle for less experienced server admins (Basic is the default).
  • New native plugins, including in-game overlay which displays information regarding which users are currently speaking within any DirectX and OpenGL games. Please note this plugin is still undergoing fixes/tweaks.

For a complete changelog, select Help > View Changelog after installing RC1.
If you experience any issues with TeamSpeak 3 RC1, please report them to this thread in our forums. We will do our best to address issues prior to the Final release, but we need as much feedback from you as possible.
How do I update to RC1?
The easiest way is to use the auto-update feature within TeamSpeak (launch the client and choose Help > Check for Updates from the pull down menu). For new installs you can also download RC1 from our downloads page.

I have run into problems with RC1, is there a way for me to downgrade back to beta36?
Please don't forget to report your issue in the above forum thread first. Then, if you need to downgrade back to beta36 you can do so by following this link.

TeamSpeak 3 Client for iPhone and Android Coming Soon!
We are thrilled at the attention our iPhone/iPod client demo received at the GDC earlier this year. Therefore, we are also pleased to announce that iPhone and Android client development is still in progress, and will also be available for download soon in the App Store or the Android Market. Our goal is to release both the iPhone and Android client when TeamSpeak 3 Final is released.

Here are a few screenshots of the latest iPhone prototype:



Please visit our site often for additional updates. As TeamSpeak 3 Final approaches, we are also going to commit to more frequent Facebook and Twitter updates so please be sure to follow us if you are not already doing so.

Thank you!

Holiday Greetings & TS3 Final
by Florence on Dec 30, 2010

Hello fellow TeamSpeak communities!

Happy holiday greetings and warm wishes from everyone at TeamSpeak. We want to remind you that our Addons Contest featuring a $3000 cash grand prize and prizes from Alienware, Razer, and Bigfoot Networks has been extended. The new deadline to vote or submit your addon for a chance to win is now February 15th 2011. Those of you who requested more time to work on addons have received their wish so get going and vote on existing addons or submit your addon for a chance at winning the grand prize!

We are also pleased to announce that TeamSpeak 3 is almost feature complete, and TeamSpeak 3 FINAL will be released sometime in Q1 of 2011. In terms of development we are in the process of dotting our last I's and crossing our last T's. You can expect that within the next few weeks we will release a release candidate (RC1). This will bring TeamSpeak 3 one step closer toward Final release and mark the end of open beta.

TeamSpeak 3 features we are currently working on finalizing include:
  • A basic/advance toggle mode for the permissions system to help less experienced server admins. The basic permissions mode will be the default startup mode for new server installs.
  • An overhauled sound system which features echo cancelation and significant reduction in voice latency.
  • A completely redone default sound pack (much higher sound quality, recorded in a studio by a voiceover professional).
  • An improved TCP stack which addresses several performance and stability issues for some of our larger hosters.

We wish you a happy 2011 new year and hope that TeamSpeak will continue to be a part of your voice communication needs. Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes,

- TeamSpeak Team

Server 3.0.0-beta29 Available
by Florence on Sep 29, 2010

Greetings,

We are happy to announce the release of a new server build with version 3.0.0-beta29. This version introduces several new features and performance optimizations. Encryption of voice packets (that was previously always on) is now a configurable option and is off by default. Disabling encryption is especially useful for big servers as it cuts down on CPU usage. Voice data encryption is configurable on a server basis or on a per channel basis.

Here's the full list of changes:

=== Server Release 3.0.0-beta29 29 Sep 2010
! Voice packets are now not transfered encrypted by default. Added options to configure this behavior on virtual server or per channel level. Clients of versions beta29 and earlier will not be able to communicate with new clients.
! removed permission i_client_kick_power and i_client_needed_kick_power
! certain log messages, like query and accounting wont go anymore to the database
! serverquery sends between the ts3 prompt also a new welcome message
! token functions renamed to privilegekey (privilegekeyadd, privilegekeydelete, privilegekeyuse, privilegekeylist) old function names are still working but will be removed.
+ added permissions i_client_kick_from_server_power, i_client_needed_kick_from_server_power, i_client_kick__from_channel_power, i_client_needed_kick_from_channel_power
+ added permissions b_channel_modify_make_codec_encrypted, b_virtualserver_modify_codec_encryption_mode
+ client kick from channel wont check for i_client_needed_move_power / i_client_move_power
- fixed clientIDCache issues
- property "instance_uptime" is now in seconds since 1970
- fixed removing an offline client from channelgroup wont be logged
- fixed issues with serversnapshotdeploy and using invalid filepaths
- fixed issues with serversnapshotdeploy and writing zero database entries
- fixed issues with serversnapshotdeploy where a failed deploy left invalid data
- fixed users are shown in weblist, even when a server with reserved slots is empty
Drop us a line in our Community Forums if you have bugs to report. Thank you!
