With a close collaboration between the two open source projects, starting from early 2000 years, expect high quality talks approaching how-to and use case tutorials about combining Asterisk and Kamailio to build, secure, scalable and innovative real time communication systems and services.
Spanning across all the week, Sep 29 – Oct 03, 2014, the event is the place where SIP implementers of various products, from phones, libraries to gateways, servers or testing tools, meet for testing products with each other or in multi-parties test scenarios.
Along the years, our project was a frequent participant, no matter the name was at that time SER, OpenSER or Kamailio. This edition, Daniel-Constantin Mierla from Asipto and Olle E. Johansson from Edvina are there, making sure that the upcoming major version 4.2.0 is rock solid, ready to roll out in production once released. They might be less active on mailing lists, but for the benefits of all, heavily testing and stressing Kamailio.
The development (aka master) branch of Kamailio now enter the pre-release phase for version 4.2.0. Therefore, no new features are allowed to be pushed to GIT master branch until we create a dedicated branch for 4.2 (expected to be in about 4 weeks or so).
The focus moves now on testing the code, to get it in a stable, rock solid state at the time of release. We hope to get many people from the community involved in testing. If you want to get involved and need assistance about what and how to do it, don’t hesitate to write to mailing lists. The first step is to get Kamailio installed from sources, details at:
It has been quite a long journey, not very smooth always, but you know the saying: what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!
The project is entering now the 14th year of development, with a new major release around the corner. The development for next major version 4.2.0 is freezing on Wednesday, September 10, expecting to have the stable release out around mid of October. It will be the 15th major release coming out over all these years.
We have pioneered many aspects of real time communications via IP and we will stick to our main characteristics that kept us at the top: innovation, scalability and stability.
It is never enough to express the gratitude for everyone that made our evolution possible:developers and community members.
With full thirteen years of development, we are a qualified teenager project now! Stay tuned for more amazing features to get out before Kamailio is eligible for the driving license!
While developed more as a proof of concept so far, it is functional and can help writing easier Kamailio configuration files. Hopefully interested people will join development to bring it to a ‘smarter auto-complete’ plugin.
Right now it relies on custom autocomplete feature from vim — once activated, as you type a word, by pressing CTRL+x CTRL+u a pop up box presents possible completion by matching the typed part of the word.
The dictionaries include module functions and parameters, script variables, core functions and parameters (they were generated with some scripts grepping various files, thus they might not be complete).
It is not (yet) aware of context, so it displays all matches (e.g., even when in a route block, it displays core parameters), so again, everyone is welcome to contribute/fork/pull requests to develop the plugin further. The readme lists some other goals as well.
Hopefully it is going to be useful at least for some people in the community!
