    TS5 discussion continues

    Finally some questions!

    I can neither confirm nor deny... blah blah... seriously... if you look at the images we've published, the answer should be quite obvious, right?

    We have a release date in mind, but we don't want to make the Q4 2018 mistake again... We'll announce a release date when we're 100% sure we're ready for beta.

    It's TeamSpeak so we decide as a team... but yes, I have a part in this decision. So feel free to blame me.

    They will get access as soon as possible. Yes, they have won and we'll make up for the delay somehow.

    It depends. For TeamSpeak Server based chats, we have a lot of ideas to improve the functionality to make them better, but right now we have another priority.

    TS5 and TS3 clients are interoperable, use the same server and the same permission system. Obviously, we'll do a better job in making the permission system more "accessible" for users in the TS5 UI over time.

    The TeamSpeak 3 Client will remain a citizen in our ecosystem and we will continue to support it. However, our priorities will shift to TS5 and its development and right now, we do not plan to add TS5 features to TS3 clients as our old UI is confusing enough.

    Again... it depends.

    We're testing a new platform with out closed alpha testers. We will have something ready when closed beta starts.

    Yes, we'd like to provide a minimalistic cross-platform solution... but not with the initial release.

    I'm sure there are quite a few ways to say it... but I'll stick with soon.

    Quote Originally Posted by Trunkz Jr View Post

    Yes. We try to push out new alpha builds on daily basis, but sometimes we work on quite substantial changes. Like I stated earlier, active development of TS5 began in April 2018 so you can device the number of days by the number of alpha builds to get a better idea. If you're interested, here's a graph showing the commit stats for the last 2000 commits that were made in the TS5 client repo:

    So you can see we're pretty much working every day around the clock to get things done.

    Right now, we're in closed alpha. Soon, we'll start closed beta where we'll invite all the people who've registered in subsequent waves. After that, we'll launch open beta.



    Again... I value all of your opinions, but I want to limit this thread to constructive feedback and meaningful questions. Everything else will be deleted without any comment.

    So why not increase the number of alpha testers for faster testing? As following the example of the gaming industry, where a considerable number of people are invited to the alpha and the tests pass on time, and not like where you test 10 people from what I think. It will be wiser to give access to alpha to at least 200-300 people.

    So you imply that the reason of the - in your opinion - slow progress is the lack of testers? I highly doubt that.
    Your 200-300 people are coming with the closed beta, in TeamSpeak's case.

    You can have two projects with the same progress towards the finish. Just because one developer calls it "Alpha" and the other one names it "Beta", it is still in the same state of being finished.

    I can understand you point, but I guess thats highly based on the demand to get your own hands on the client. I mean same goes for me, but still, without any insights how they develop it, it's pretty unfair to criticise their methods, just based on (coming or missing) results.

    Right now, we have around 60 people testing the alpha (including friends, family, trusted users and business partners). We're in a phase of development where we're tweaking things in the UI on a daily basis to give it a final touch for the beta... and even when we're in beta, I still think the UI is subject to change based on community feedback. It's "Your Team. Your Rules." after all.

    We're trying to create an awesome user-experience for you... we're still TeamSpeak... not another Slack for gamers like our competitors.

    Will the Beta have any NDA or will people be able to show others how ts5 is on the Beta? Asking because otherwise those of us who didn't make it to the beta are looking at... extra months? of waiting.

    @ScP

    I have a question is a new site is also in preparation compatible with all languages and much more dynamic and understandable?

    Will TS5 be Desktop Client only? Or will there be a Web Client aswell?

    Will there be an increase in Voice / Codec quality (TS3 and or TS5)?

    Will it be possible to share pictures and video files directly in the (channel) chat?

    Why do you want to keep TS3 Client active? Because of lower system requirements or professional users / authorities?
    E.g. TS5 for Gamers and Communities and TS3 for Corporates.

    Well as we know for a fact that not a single person except ScP cares to respond i also have a few questions for you sir.

    1) How much work according to you in terms of percentage 1-100% is remaining from the target set before you can release the server on beta.

    2) The new server for TS5 will consume more hardware than its normal usage?

    3) Now that you have mentioned that you are only using 60 people to test this stuff I'd also give suggestion to trust people more and reach out to more people like servers with sponsorship license and many others. If you think 60 people can test something out it will take a miracle to bring a closed beta version in 2019

    2020 is not my definition of soon...
    4)Your definition of soon might not be 2020 but after the debacle of Q4 2018 there is nothing certain for sure and you know it. So why don't you release your microsite and keep the public involved?

    5) Do u plan on integrating steam with TS5? I assume this would be a feature to match up with discord for good.

    6) What happens to the current channel chats? Will that still remain a thing on TS5? Or you will create chat channels and voice channels differently?

    7) My last question comes directly from my friends with low end pc: TS3 vs TS5 which one eats more RAM and CPU usage? Is the difference too large for noob PC's to use the new version?

    No, but you won't be able to use the beta without an account that's unlocked for TS5.

    I'm not sure what site you're refering too, but... yes, we're going to update all of our sites over time.

    Desktop first... more will follow.

    Quote Originally Posted by boehseronkel View Post

    We're working on several things to improve audio quality and make things easier.

    Just look at the images we've already shared and you'll have your answer.

    Quote Originally Posted by boehseronkel View Post

    I guess a lot of people will prefer the old-school TS3 experience so as long as we can support TS3 we'll do that.

    π maybe?

    There is no new server.

    We already have an integration service for Twitch and we’ll add new features over time.

    Yes, channel based chats are still a thing.

    Obviously, a modern UI will need more RAM than the Qt based UI in TS3. In terms of CPU usage, I'd say the requirements of TS5 are about the same if not lower.

    Thank you for the (very promising) answers

    As a software developer myself i am quite excited what you guys will bring us with TS5.

    Also the news on RAM and CPU usage are well appreciated.
    So my hopes are high that TS5 will be completely native and well optimized, not like that awful Web-Apps or the need for an runtime environment.

    We're working on updates for our mobile apps, but they won't be available when the TS5 beta begins.

    Well... it's hard to give you an exact number. Developing software is not like building a brick wall... you can't take the total number of bricks and extrapolate a release date. Anyway... I'd say we're definitely more than 90% ready for beta.

    Quote Originally Posted by Raider007 View Post

    Actually, we're at alpha255. Please note, that a build number (or a Git tag name in this case) is not a reliable indicator for progress.

    I'm not pointing fingers. We are a team... and as such... a ball dropped by any of us is a ball dropped by all of us. Feel free to blame me if you need a scapegoat.

    I know you mentioned that server will be pretty much untouched, but I was wondering if we can count for a server to run on ARM CPU's in the future?

    Constructive feedback:

    What do you think in terms of Teamspeak doing away with numerical notations, ex: TS"3" TS"5", and just call the product Teamspeak for the final release, nothing else is needed. I'm not talking about version numbers, just the whole TeamSpeak 2,3,5... Many people are confused by this and it would certainly make it easier for users on the whole server/client as well as a marketing perspective.


    Question:

    Similar to the TeamSpeak 3 beta where it was 2 years until fully released and features ceased to be implemented. Will this happen with TeamSpeak 5 as well? Has TeamSpeak changed its way of doing things and vowed that when TeamSpeak 5 is fully released that it will still be honored with features and changes wanted by users, which hasn't happened with TS3?
