Asterisk 11 and AsteriskNOW

Postby rbremer » Wed Dec 12, 2012 1:53 pm

During the last couple of weeks Digium has posted instructions on how to install the latest LTS release of Asterisk on both Ubuntu and CentOS. Since we are using Digium Phones and therefore rely on the integration of DPMA in both Asterisk and the FreePBX GUI, I was wondering when AsteriskNOW will get a channel to switch from 1.8 to 11.

Is there any time plan for this change?

FreePBX is no alternative due to the missing DPMA modules for FreePBX. AstGUI also doesnt have DPMA support (afaik), so AsteriskNOW would be our only choice at the moment.

You might ask, why switch to 11? One module is of peek interest for us, since we operate a farm of Asterisk servers, distributed state changes. In Asterisk 1.8 you would need the res_jabber module for that, however, it has been removed from the -certified branch and the only viable option is to stick with a LTS release (hence 11) to use the new XMPP based modules.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

No time plan. It'll happen, but not until next year. We've got a lot of irons in the fire, still. :D

Thanks Malcom! Would you consider using 10-digium an alternative in the meantime?

10's not a great idea, since it stops receiving bug fixes after this next release. 11's the future, 1.8's the present.

You can install the modules with current freepbx. You don't need AsteriskNow and it's not that hard.
