Rilasciato Asterisk 11

Il giorno 31 ottobre, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio della versione stabile Asterisk.
La versione 11 di Asterisk è una LTS (Long Term Support) come la 1.8.

Dal post originale:
Asterisk 11 includes a number of major new features including:

WebRTC Support with WebSocket transport over SIP.
DTLS-SRTP – A secure transport for RTP media streams used by WebRTC and SIP endpoints.
ICE, STUN and TURN – A set of related technologies for establishing live media streams between software agents running behind network address translators (NATs) and firewalls. ICE, STUN and TURN have been incorporated into the Asterisk RTP engine as part of the effort to support WebRTC.
Motif – A new channel driver for supporting the Jingle protocol and Google Talk. Motif combines functions previously spread across multiple channels, and makes use of a new and more standards-compliant XMPP implementation.
More information about the new features can be found on the Asterisk 11 Documentation wiki page and a full list of all new features can be found in the CHANGES file.

Zimbra: comunicazione e collaborazione aziendale integrata con Asterisk

 

Non tutti conoscono questo fantastico strumento per la comunicazione e la collaborazione aziendale che offre delle soluzioni analoghe a quelle realizzate da IBM (Domino) o Novell (Groupwise), ma non solo, si integra perfettamente con sistemi Microsoft, Mac e Linux e un'ampia gamma di dipositivi mobili quali Smartphone, Blackberry, palmari,etc.

Zimbra ha un Client di posta, molto avanzato e il suo utilizzo è fluido e intuitivo, grazie all'implentazione di Ajax, usata in tutta la suite.

Zimbra ha una Rubrica potente e di immediato utilizzo, la rubrica può essere anche condivisa con gruppi di lavoro.

Zimbra ha un Calendario, nei quali è possibile inserire appuntamenti, eventualmente condividerlo, in modo che gli altri membri del gruppo possono inserire e visualizzare quelli inseriti da altri.

Zimbra integra uno strumento per la creazione e la condivisione dei documenti, offrendo un editing sugli stessi che agevola moltissimo sul piano della collaborazione tra i membri del team.

Zimbra gestisce le attività personali e condivise e integra una funzione di sincronizzazione con i task di Microsoft Outlook.

Zimbra integra un proprio “Istant Messaging” , basato sul protocollo XMPP capace di interagire con altri IM quali AOL e MSN.

La funzionalità che sicuramente contraddistingue questa suite è quella di integrarsi ad altri servizi tramite estensioni dette zimlets. A questo indirizzo http://gallery.zimbra.com c'è una gallery molto vasta suddivisa per categorie.

Noi abbiamo modificato lo zimlet “Integrazione ad Asterisk” che si può scaricare dall'indirizzo di cui sopra, riuscendolo ad implementare nella nuova versione ZCS 6.0.8.

Con questa integrazione si possono chiamare i contatti dalla proprio rubrica o quella condivisa, semplicemente cliccando sui numeri visualizzati.

Inoltre abbiamo usato l'integrazione al Server Jabber implementato nella nostra soluzione per inviare al client di Zimbra le notifiche delle chiamate dei contatti provenienti anche da altre rubriche quali la nostra o quelle di un crm.

Rilasciato Asterisk 11.0.0-beta1

Il giorno 10 agosto, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio della versione Asterisk 11.0.0-beta1

Dal post originale:
All interested users of Asterisk are encouraged to participate in the
Asterisk 11 testing process. Please report any issues found to the issue
tracker, https://issues.asterisk.org/jira. It is also very useful to see
successful test reports. Please post those to the asterisk-dev mailing list.
All Asterisk users are invited to participate in the #asterisk-testing channel
on IRC to work together in testing the many parts of Asterisk.

Asterisk 11 is the next major release series of Asterisk. It will be a Long
Term Support (LTS) release, similar to Asterisk 1.8. For more information about
support time lines for Asterisk releases, see the Asterisk versions page:
https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Asterisk+Versions

For important information regarding upgrading to Asterisk 11, please see the
Asterisk wiki:

https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Upgrading+to+Asterisk+11

A short list of new features includes:

A new channel driver named chan_motif has been added which provides support
for Google Talk and Jingle in a single channel driver. This new channel
driver includes support for both audio and video, RFC2833 DTMF, all codecs
supported by Asterisk, hold, unhold, and ringing notification. It is also
compliant with the current Jingle specification, current Google Jingle
specification, and the original Google Talk protocol.
Support for the WebSocket transport for chan_sip.
SIP peers can now be configured to support negotiation of ICE candidates.
The app_page application now no longer depends on DAHDI or app_meetme. It
has been re-architected to use app_confbridge internally.
Hangup handlers can be attached to channels using the CHANNEL() function.
Hangup handlers will run when the channel is hung up similar to the h
extension; however, unlike an h extension, a hangup handler is associated with
the actual channel and will execute anytime that channel is hung up,
regardless of where it is in the dialplan.
Added pre-dial handlers for the Dial and Follow-Me applications. Pre-dial
allows you to execute a dialplan subroutine on a channel before a call is
placed but after the application performing a dial action is invoked. This
means that the handlers are executed after the creation of the caller/callee
channels, but before any actions have been taken to actually dial the callee
channels.
Log messages can now be easily associated with a certain call by looking at
a new unique identifier, "Call Id". Call ids are attached to log messages for
just about any case where it can be determined that the message is related
to a particular call.
Introduced Named ACLs as a new way to define Access Control Lists (ACLs) in
Asterisk. Unlike traditional ACLs defined in specific module configuration
files, Named ACLs can be shared across multiple modules.
The Hangup Cause family of functions and dialplan applications allow for
inspection of the hangup cause codes for each channel involved in a call.
This allows a dialplan writer to determine, for each channel, who hung up and
for what reason(s).
Two new functions have been added: FEATURE() and FEATUREMAP(). FEATURE()
lets you set some of the configuration options from the general section
of features.conf on a per-channel basis. FEATUREMAP() lets you customize
the key sequence used to activate built-in features, such as blindxfer,
and automon.
Support for named pickupgroups/callgroups, allowing any number of pickupgroups
and callgroups to be defined for several channel drivers.
IPv6 Support for AMI, AGI, ExternalIVR, and the SIP Security Event Framework.
More information about the new features can be found on the Asterisk wiki:

https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Asterisk+11+Documentation

A full list of all new features can also be found in the CHANGES file.

Rilasciate le Security Release di Asterisk 1.4.44, 16.2.23, 1.8.10.1, 10.2.1

Il giorno 15 marzo, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio delle versioni Asterisk: 1.4.44, 16.2.23, 1.8.10.1, 10.2.1 Now Available (Security Release)

Dal post originale:
The release of Asterisk 1.4.44 and 1.6.2.23 resolve an issue wherein app_milliwatt
can potentially overrun a buffer on the stack, causing Asterisk to crash. This
does not have the potential for remote code execution.

The release of Asterisk 1.8.10.1 and 10.2.1 resolve two issues. First, they
resolve the issue in app_milliwatt, wherein a buffer can potentially be overrun
on the stack, but no remote code execution is possible. Second, they resolve
an issue in HTTP AMI where digest authentication information can be used to
overrun a buffer on the stack, allowing for code injection and execution.

These issues and their resolution are described in the security advisory.

For more information about the details of these vulnerabilities, please read the
security advisories AST-2012-002 and AST-2012-003, which were released at the same
time as this announcement.

Thank you!

The following is a sample of the issues resolved in this release candidate:

Include iLBC source code for distribution with Asterisk

Clarification regarding the iLBC source code was provided by Google, and the
appropriate licenses have been included in the codecs/ilbc folder.
(closes issue: ASTERISK-18943) Reporter: Leif Madsen
Fix crash from bridge channel hangup race condition in ConfBridge

This patch addresses two issues in ConfBridge and the channel bridge layer:
1. It fixes a race condition wherein the bridge channel could be hung up
2. It removes the deadlock avoidance from the bridging layer and makes
the bridge_pvt an ao2 ref counted object
(issue ASTERISK-18988, ASTERISK-18885, ASTERISK-19100)
Reported by: Dmitry Melekhov, Alexander Akimov
Don't do a DNS lookup on an outbound REGISTER host if there is an
outbound proxy configured.
(closes issue ASTERISK-16550) reported by: Olle Johansson
Create and initialize udptl only when a dialog negotiates for image media

Prior to this patch, the udptl struct was allocated and initialized when a
dialog was associated with a peer that supported T.38, when a new SIP
channel was allocated, or when an INVITE request was received. This resulted
in any dialog associated with a peer that supported T.38 having udptl
support assigned to it, including the UDP ports needed for
communication. This patch creates and initializes the udptl structure only
when the SDP for a dialog specifies that image media is supported, or when
Asterisk indicates that a dialog needs to support T.38.
(closes issue ASTERISK-16698, ASTERISK-16794)
Reported by: under, Elazar; Tested by: Stefan Schmidt
Allow only one thread at time to do Asterisk cleanup/shutdown

Add locking around the really-really-quit part of the core stop/restart part.
Previously more than one thread could be called to do cleanup, causing atexit
handlers to be run multiple times, in turn causing segfaults.
(issue ASTERISK-18883)
Patch by: Walter Doekes
Fix outbound DTMF for inband mode in chan_ooh323

This tells asterisk core to generate DTMF sounds. (Closes issue
ASTERISK-19233) Reported by: Matt Behrens Patches:
