I think I might have a clue as to why chan_dialogic was abandoned ...  
we're a close Dialogic partner and I know for certain that  
chan_dialogicdiva (which I believe is based on chan_capi) is being  
actively developed by the team in Germany. In fact, Dialogic  
themselves are looking to enter the asterisk market in a big way, but  
it's not with the DNI cards any more (if it ever was, I'm going on  
what the original poster suggested might have been going on at one  
time). Instead, it's the Dialogic Diva Server boards that they're  
promoting for use with chan_dialogicdiva.

We have a bit of information up on this at


Perhaps the new company (post acquisition) decided to focus on the  
diva server boards because they already had excellent CAPI support,  
which would allow them to leverage an existing channel driver without  
reinventing the wheel?
