Freeswitch 1.0.3 is released

Wow! The crew working on Freeswitch are certainly pushing forward. Michael Collins just post a notice of the availability of v1.0.3 which includes 127 fixes & changes. A couple of the more interesting include leveraging the Digium TC400B hardware for multi-channel G.729a and G.723.1 transcoding,  also AMR-WB passthough.

Kristian K of Star2Star and Astlinux fame has also worked to make Freeswitch compile within the Astlinux development environment. So you can have a high-performance SIP proxy and Asterisk running on small format embedded hardware. OMG, I love that!

Since Freeswitch is now an installable module for pfsense you could also have it running on your router. That’s great, too!

  • Thanks for spreading the word. We have more stuff in store for the OSS telephony community but we’re trying not to get ahead of ourselves. 🙂

    Keep up the good work. This is a great blog.
