The Asterisk Development Team has announced the releases of:

This release is available for immediate download at:

*** THIS RC FIXES CENTOS 6.5 "PDE_DATA" build issue ***

In version 2.8 we have introduced two new drivers:
wcte43x - For Digium's new line of 2/4 span T1/E1 cards
wcaxx - For Digium's new line of analog fxs/fxo cards

We introduced a common library called "wcxb" which ties the previous two
drivers, plus the recently introduced wcte13xp driver, together into one common

dahdi-linux-complete tarballs now include all firmware necessary to build
without an internet connection.
