The Asterisk Development Team is pleased to announce the release of
Asterisk This release is available for immediate download at

The release of Asterisk resolves several issues reported by the
community and would have not been possible without your participation.
Thank you!

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

* Updated SIP 484 handling; added Incomplete control frame
   When a SIP phone uses the dial application and receives a 484 Address
   Incomplete response, if overlapped dialing is enabled for SIP, then 
the 484
   Address Incomplete is forwarded back to the SIP phone and the HANGUPCAUSE
   channel variable is set to 28. Previously, the Incomplete application
   dialplan logic was automatically triggered; now, explicit dialplan 
usage of
   the application is required.
