A detailed overview to the new features available in Asterisk 220.127.116.11 are
forthcoming within the next few days. Please watch http://blogs.asterisk.org for
Below is a summary of several new features available in this release:
* chan_dahdi now supports MFC/R2 signaling when Asterisk is compiled with
support for LibOpenR2. http://www.libopenr2.org/
* Added a new 'faxdetect=yes|no' configuration option to sip.conf. When this
option is enabled, Asterisk will watch for a CNG tone in the incoming audio
for a received call. If it is detected, the channel will jump to the
'fax' extension in the dialplan.
* A new application, Originate, has been introduced, that allows asynchronous
call origination from the dialplan.
* Added ConfBridge dialplan application which does conference bridges without
DAHDI. For information on its use, please see the output of
"core show application ConfBridge" from the CLI.
* extensions.conf now allows you to use keyword "same" to define an extension
without actually specifying an extension. It uses exactly the same pattern
as previously used on the last "exten" line. For example:
exten => 123,1,NoOp(something)
same => n,SomethingElse()
* Asterisk now provides the ability to define custom CLI aliases. For example,
if you would like to define short form aliases for frequently used commands,
such as "sh ch" for "core show channels", that is now possible. See the
cli_aliases.conf configuration file for more information.
* Asterisk now has support for subscribing to the state of remote voice
mailboxes via SIP.
* Asterisk now includes expanded HD codec support. G.722.1 and G.722.1C
(Siren7/Siren14) passthrough, recording, and playback is now supported.
Transcoding will be made available via add-on modules soon for this version of
