Kamailio v4.4 – Development Frozen

The development (master) branch of Kamailio enters now in pre-release phase for version 4.4.0. Therefore, no new feature are going to be pushed to master until a dedicated branch for 4.4 is created (in about 4 weeks or so). The full release should be out by mid of March 2016.
If you are a registered developer and in doubt to push or not a commit to master, push it first on a personal branch (or attach to an email) and discuss it on sr-dev. The new modules can be a bit more dynamic if there is need to get them to the right shape (e.g., like decision to rename functions, parameters or adjust database structure).
We hope to get many people involved in testing, to reach a stable state before releasing 4.4.0. If you want to get involved and need assistance, don’t hesitate to write to mailing lists. Based on my quick review, there were no major changes to old core components, meaning we should have preserved quite a good level of stability overall.
Help with updating the wiki page for migration from 4.3 to 4.4 as well as what is new in 4.4 is very appreciated. We will post updates about them very soon.
Many thanks to everyone involved in development of 4.4 and the early testers that played with master branch so far.
Thank you for flying Kamailio!

Kamailio Development Workshop, Feb 2016

Last edition of Kamailio Development Workshop happened about three years ago. Several people asked about it from time to time, therefore I thought of trying to organize a new edition. Rather short term by now due to various constraints, so the plan is to do it again in Alicante, Spain, during February 15-16, 2016.
More details are available at:
Besides spending 2 days digging into Kamailio C code, such event is also good for discovering and sharing development resources among participants, as well as meeting people from community — at the previous editions we met for first time with Victor Seva, Vicente Hernando and Seudin Kasumovic, which in turn contributed a lot of Kamailio code afterwards. It will be also testing phase for upcoming major release v4.4.0, maybe we can plan some stress testing session on site.
Right now the goal is to see if there is any interest in such event in order to nail down organizing it or not. Should anyone consider to participate, write an email to:
registration [at] kamailio.org
Thank you for flying Kamailio!

miconda.eu

While owning the domain miconda.eu for quite some time, never found the time to set it up. With the winter holidays giving sort of a break, I pointed blog.miconda.eu to my blog (here) at by-miconda.blogspot.com.

The main domain miconda.eu is pointed to about.me/miconda . I plan to make more use of this domain (email?!?), let's see if 2016 brings more spare time ...

Enjoy the winter holidays!

New Kamailio Module: cfgt

Victor Seva from Sipwise has published a new module forKamailio, named cfgt. The module is to be part of the next major release of Kamailio – v4.4.0, expected to be out on early spring of 2016.
The module is useful for unit testing, to compare the results of the Kamailio configuration file routing logic. The report of execution is in JSON format, making it easy to analyse. Among the contents of the report can be the values for variables used in the configuration file.
You have to make your test scenario (e.g., using sipp), send the traffic to Kamailio and then check if the report contains expected results.
The documentation of the module is available at:


    The functionality of the module is rather small by now, but Victor is committed to add more in the near future, including examples of how to use it. Stay tuned and keep an eye on kamailio.org for updates!

    Proposing a New Logo for the Kamailio Project

    During the Kamailio IRC level meeting this summer, a need for refreshing the logotype of the project was discussed. The current (embedded in the upper right corner of kamailio.org main page) is based on the one used for during the former OpenSER name of the project, with changes of the text to reflect the SIP Router and Kamailio names, somehow not longer very balanced, lacking good quality and high resolution graphics. The participants agreed that a refresh would be better than keeping that version.
    One option was to reuse the graphics from Kamailio World Conference logo, simply with Kamailio name. It was used even before as alternative logo by various peoples and companies.
    We now want to finish this process and we considered also the possibility of a new logo design. Thanks to Asipto and their deal with 99Designs, we ran a design contest and see if someone proposes an interesting logotype. Based on the result of the contest, followed by discussions on management group and the people interested in updating the logotype, we are proposing a new logo for the project:
    kamailio-logo-2015
    During the next days we are expecting feedback from community, especially if it looks too similar with other logos they know or if they like it or not. Based on that, a final decision will be taken and either we will switch to the new proposed logo or keep looking for a new one.
    Join the discussion about the new logo on users mailing listsr-users@lists.sip-router.org .
    2D and 3D variants in different formats, as well as some combinations with few pictures, can be found at:
    As a preview, a few variants are embedded here:

      Kamailio Syntax Highlighting for the Atom Editor

      Atom is an open source editor developed by Github. One of its useful features is ability to preview the markdown files while editing them. The Kamailio source tree includes a few such markdown files (e.g., README.md in the root folder). They are nicely displayed when browsing the GIT repository at github.com.
      Another feature would be auto-completion suggestion based on the content of the edited file, so, for example, if you define a route block, then its name appears when adding the statement to execute that route.
      A syntax highlighting package for kamailio.cfg has been made available at:
      Information about how to install it are available in the readme at the above link.
      For now, it does rather basic matching of configuration file elements, still relevant to make them easier to spot. Contributions to enhance it are more than welcome!

      Building Kamailio in Docker

      Thanks to Victor Seva from Sipwise, the Travis-CI jobs for building Kamailio were upgraded to useDocker containers.
      travis-cidocker
      A part of continuous integration process for Kamailio project, the builds are triggered by commits to master and stable branches, helping to detect compilation issues on different OS distributions, which typically happen due to different versions of libraries.
      The bonus is that the same build system can be used locally by anyone, being it developer or VoIP engineer. Quite useful in cases when one wants to backport patches or develop its own extensions.
      You can read the description of the build system as well as get the scripts from the source code of Kamailio, in the folder test/travis-ci. You can browse the content of the folder online at:
      Enjoy!
