Download QuteCom 2.2 RC3 – Free VoIP SoftPhone

Formerly known as WengoPhone , QuteCom softphone is an open-source, multi-platform VoIP client that uses the open protocol SIP – – Session Initiation Protocol.

Qutecom RC3 comes with the following improvements;
* Mac build fixes
* 64-bit build fixes
* libpurple related bug fixes
* fixes for plugin codec functionality
* fixes to codec negotiations (now able to work with ILBC in 30ms or 20ms modes)
