Day by day, we ended another year. 2008 was full of events, starting with one major release and six minor releases, participation to workshops and conferences wordlwide, adoption in new production environments and acknowledgement of running platforms with millions of users and billions of routed minutes/month using Kamailio (OpenSER), check the News archive at:
There were sad events as well, including the hijacking of the old domain name after the rename in Kamailio, still the SourceForge project goes on, with same name, proving the genuine openser project:
We maintained release 1.3.x series, last being 1.3.4, which still keeps the old name and is available at:
Life is going on, from the the latest major release, version 1.4.0, the project boosted in new features, a summary of what is new since then is available here:
An important share of effort was directed to clean the code and improve the stability and performance, a proof of maturity and the need to make the maintenance of the project easier and open for new comers. Lot of documentation was added in doxygen format inside the source code, Devel Guide was published, new developers can start new easier to enhance the application.
Reference moment for the future was the launch of SIP Router project in November - a concentration of many people with great SIP and VoIP expertise, backed up by huge programming experience in this field. This came to strengthen the development workforce, to ensure the reliability, to remove the doubts of what projects is better now or is going to develop better in the future.
