[asterisk-users] Asterisk 11 - Security Fix Mode

Hello Everyone,

As many of you are already aware, we are rapidly approaching the time
when the Asterisk 11 branch will go into what is known as security fix
only mode.  Up to this point, bug fixes have been included and merged
into the 11 branch.  For Asterisk 11, this new phase of life shall
begin October 25th of this year.

This means that from a development perspective, the Asterisk
development team will not be putting effort into bug fixes for the 11
branch after the 25th of October.  Security related patches will be
merged for another year before completely putting the branch to rest.
During the course of that year, releases will be made as needed and as
security related patches are merged.

For any questions, you can either reply to this message or look at the
Asterisk Versioning Policy wiki page [1] as it explains most of this
process in greater detail.

Thanks so much again for all of your support and effort.  Asterisk
would not be what it is if it were not for all the great contributors
that are and have been involved.
