Yesterday, we released the 1.1.2 update for the Google voice and video chat software. This update fixes the issues some users were seeing with 1.1.1. All current installations will automatically update within the next day or two. If you do not want to wait, you can visit http://www.google.com/chat/video and re-run the installer.
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.
Here's what's new in version 1.1.2:
- Fixed problem where the plugin did not load properly if it encountered an error accessing Windows Firewall.
- Fixed problem where the plugin did not load properly on some Macs running OS 10.4.
- Fixed problem where video did not appear for users using the "dev" versions of Chrome with integrated Flash.
If you're on 1.1.2 and still having a problem, please take a look at the Google Chat Help Center, or report the issue on the Google Voice and Video Help Forum. As always, feel free to email me directly as well.
Lastly, thanks to all the users who emailed and posted about their issues with 1.1.1. Your feedback was critical in identifying the issues and determining a resolution, and we really appreciate your help.
