The Asterisk Development Team announces the second release candidate of
Asterisk This release candidate 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!

Please note that a significant numbers of changes and fixes have gone into
features.c in this release (call parking, built-in transfers, call 
pickup, etc.)
and a testing focus on those particular areas would be appreciated.


Recently, we were notified that the mechanism included in our Asterisk 
code releases to download and build support for the iLBC codec had stopped
working correctly; a little investigation revealed that this occurred 
because of
some changes on the ilbcfreeware.org website. These changes occurred as 
of Google's acquisition of GIPS, who produced (and provided licenses 
for) the
iLBC codec.

If you are a user of Asterisk and iLBC together, and you've already 
executed a
license agreement with GIPS, we believe you can continue using iLBC with
Asterisk. If you are a user of Asterisk and iLBC together, but you had not
executed a license agreement with GIPS, we encourage you to research the
situation and consult with your own legal representatives to determine what
actions you may want to take (or avoid taking).
