A piece of history: 9 years SER

Today are 9 years since first source code commit of SIP Express Router (aka SER) happened. It started with following three commits reported by git-log:

git log --pretty=format:"%h%x09%an%x09%ad%x09%s" --reverse | head -3

888ca09 Andrei Pelinescu-Onciul Tue Sep 4 01:41:39 2001 +0000 parser seems to work
e60a972 Andrei Pelinescu-Onciul Tue Sep 4 20:55:41 2001 +0000 First working release

Today, 3286 days later, it counts 14 200 commits only in development branch, estimated development cost over $8,000,000.

Some statistics about project evolution and development were made available on web site – click here to see them!

There are interesting facts about most productive time frames (i.e., hour, day, …), evolution of default configuration files, command line parameters, … IPv6 support is there since 2002, but no convenient public network to use it yet.

Enjoy and enhance the content as you have interesting aspects of history to add…

… and, VERY important, do not forget to start testing 3.1.0, we are in pre-release phase, there are a lot of new features you surely want on your production system:
