News: Asterisk and Instant Messaging

The Asterisk community is now working on Instant Messaging, not being totally unaffected by the buzz about integration of voice and messaging in the market.

Asterisk 1.2 will have support for SIMPLE notifications of device presence. We will show if a phone is on a call, if it's ringing or if it's off line (not registered). We have no support for SIMPLE messaging outside of a call. Within a call, you can send text with sendtext() in the dial plan to SIP phones that supports it.
