News: Asterisk 1.2.0-rc1 Released!

Kevin Flemming has finally dropped the Bombshell on the community. Ok time to get que for the FTP :-) Enjoy and make sure you email about any bugs you find.

The first release candidate of Asterisk 1.2.0 has been released! It is available from the FTP servers, as well as the Digium CVS servers (under the 'v1-2-0-rc1' tag).

Download Links:



This release includes a large number of improvements over beta2, including:

* Many bug fixes
* Documentation and sample configuration updates
* New 'stack' applications Gosub/Return/etc.

We ask all interested community members to download and install the release candidate (on a non-production server) and report their findings via our bug tracker at Please be sure to read the UPGRADE.txt file in the distribution before upgrading your server, as there are a large number of changes that you will need to be aware of (some of them are not backwards compatible with the 1.0.x releases).

We want to extend our thanks to all the community members whose contributions have made this release possible; without their support, testing and other involvement we would not have reached this milestone so soon! I want to extend special thanks to Russell Bryant and BJ Weschke who put in many hours in the last two weeks doing 'janitorial' code updates that nobody else wanted to do. Thanks to you both!
