    Thanks for all of the hard work everyone put into this release. I think
sometimes we take some of these open-source projects for granted and don't
appreciate all the hours that people put into them. Is there a general
timeframe for when you think a stable 2.8.0 release will be available?

Subject: [asterisk-users] DAHDI-Linux and DAHDI-Tools 2.8.0-rc5 Now


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



dahdi-linux-complete tarballs now include all firmware necessary to build

without an internet connection.
