The details for the first group of speakers at Kamailio World Conference 2018 have been published. So far they come from three continents: Europe, North America and Asia, many presenting for the first time at our event.
The two sessions present at all editions so far will be there also in 2018, at our 6th edition, respectively Dangerous Demos with James Body and VUC Visions with Randy Resnick.
Besides covering various use cases for Kamailio, Asterisk or FreeSwitch, the sessions go into WebRTC, VoLTE/IMS, IoT, blockchains for telecommunications or scalability using NoSQL data storage systems. Definitely another edition with very interesting content – soon we will publish more details about the sessions as well.
After several discussions at some of the past IRC devel meetings, finally we started to build a team to be involved more actively in the administration of Kamailio. The project has grown steadily, not only in terms of code, but also packaging, continuous integration, social networking interactions as well as participation to events world wide.
For a better coordination and ability to handle related tasks, we invited the most active developers and community members to join so called Kamailio Administration Team, the initial details about it are published as part of management page on kamailio.org:
It will still take some time to get it properly rolling, more or less now looking to see if the community has suggestions/improvements on what can be done in these aspects – you can just write to sr-users mailing list.
Markus Monka has managed the VoIP operations at sipgate for more than 15 years, helping the project over the years with various resources, mainly in respect of organizing events and testing infrastructure, sipgate being one of the oldest VoIP services using Kamailio (since first releases of SER). The change is reflected now on the website:
Kamailio is a registered trademark in European Union, process completed by Henning Westerholt many years ago. The main domains kamailio.org and kamailio.com are registered by Daniel-Constantin Mierla. There is no other relevant organization having the same name, therefore such situation was affecting the Kamailio brand. Twitter Support was open to listen to our story and finally we were assigned the @kamailio name.
The process concluded with renaming @kamailioproject to @kamailio, the old followers, tweets and discussions were kept intact. So if you followed @kamailioproject in the past you should see you are following @kamailio now.
If you haven’t followed us yet, you can now be up to date with news about the project via @kamailio.
The @kamailio account is going to be shared-managed by several people, more details will be exposed soon.
Kamailio SIP Server v5.1.1stable is out – a minor release including fixes in code and documentation since v5.1.0. The configuration file and database schema compatibility is preserved, which means you don’t have to change anything to update.
Kamailio® v5.1.1 is based on the latest version of GIT branch 5.1. We recommend those running previous 5.1.x or older versions to upgrade. There is no change that has to be done to configuration file or database structure comparing with the previous release of the v5.1 branch.
