Asterisk 1.0.5 Released!

Asterisk VOIP


Better late than never (and I get to announce two things in one post), Asterisk 1.0.5 has been released and is available from the Digium FTP server as a .tar.gz compressed archive. Read Russell's 1.0.4* release email in the Read More.
*Note that there was a small bug in 1.0.4 so 1.0.5 was released shortly after. The libPRI libraries, Zaptel drivers and asterisk-addons are still labled 1.0.4. The asterisk-sounds package is 1.0.1.

Russell's email also includes the launch of the Asterisk Development Proxy. From the ADP^2 website:

Home of the Asterisk-Stable maintenance effort.

The Asterisk Maintenance Crew does tasks that may be considered mundane to the experienced developer, but are still vital to the project's success. The number one task of this development If you are looking for a way to start contributing to the Asterisk code base, but feel overwhelmed and are not sure of how to get started, then this group is for you!

Find out more about The Asterisk Maintenance Crew.


Version 1.0.4 of Asterisk, Asterisk-addons, zaptel, and libpri has been
released. The releases are available on the Digium ftp site.

I have also started a web site called "The Asterisk Development Proxy"
where I would like to start centralizing Asterisk development resources.
~ I am hoping that this will become valuable for those getting into
Asterisk development.

As a part of this effort, I have started a development team called "The
Asterisk Maintenance Crew" to encourage amateur programmers to get
involved in development. The number one job of this team is to help
with the maintenance of the stable branch. We will also help to
identify and complete some easier development tasks that can be
completed for CVS head. There is plenty of work to be done, and
programmers of any skill level can help. If you have any desire to get
involved in Asterisk development, but aren't sure how to get started,
please consider getting involved.

I would like to send a special thanks to Andrew Thompson for providing
the web hosting, and to Leif Madsen (blitzrage) for his early
contributions to the web site and the maintenance crew. Josh Colp
(file) has volunteered to help with the ChangeLog, which is going to be
quite a task for Asterisk 1.2, so someone please send him a muffin.

That's all for now. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
