from freepbx.com:

There have been some inquiries over the last few weeks along with some
additional news that has come out concerning the direction of FreePBX v3 and
the lack of activity in SVN.

Rest assured that the intensive work that has gone into this project is live
and well but will be continuing under a new project name.

When we set off with the development of v3 we wanted to rewrite a system
from ground up and that is exactly how the project was executed. Darren
(pyte) was and has been the chief architect of v3 from the beginning. In an
attempt to make sure v3 could flourish with maximum creativity and not
necessarily be hampered with any "baggage" from v2, the projects were run
fairly independently though they shared this same website.

The fact that they were both under the same "FreePBX" umbrella started to
create a bit of confusion in places like the Forums and IRC channel. There
was also often concern that v2 development, which supports an installed base
of probably 500K systems, would be slowed because of v3. Given that v3 has
been a rewrite from ground up there was also concern by some when its
feature set in the early "betas" was a subset in many ways of what AMP 1.0
had 5.5 years ago.

It became clear that the best thing that could be done for both projects was
to spin v3 off into its own identitty thus allowing both FreePBX and the new
rewrite to flourish and serve the community in the best possible way. The
new project, still run by Darren, is named 2600hz
Project<http://www.2600hz.org/> and
will be the new home to allow v3 to flourish, while FreePBX (v2) continues
to evolve and serve the large installed base that it enjoys today.

We will be cleaning up the current web site over the next week to reflect
these directions and are excited as always for all the great work that is
being done in this place and by all the contributors that help us make such
a great project!
