Ventrilo client for OS X
Flagship Industries announced the first public release of the for Mac OS X, its surround sound voice communication software designed to facilitate Voice over IP (VoIP) group communications. Ventrilo client for Mac is compatible with all version 2.3.x servers and is completely interoperable with all 2.3.x Windows clients. While Ventrilo for Mac is a functional prototype, the software still lacks some features that the Windows platform supports; however, over the coming months, the company expects to offer updates to Ventrilo, adding features such as Channel and Server admin features, sound events and changes to the User Interface. Current features include cross-channel communications, phantom users for listening in on other channels, user-to-user private conversations, muted channels, and more. Ventrilo requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
