A new module named NSQ has been imported in Kamailio’s GIT repository, authored by Emmanuel Schmidbauer from Weave Communications. Emmanuel has become also a registered developed in order to maintain the module.
In short, the module provides a NSQ connector for Kamailio configuration file, allowing to interact with NSQ servers from kamailio.cfg. NSQ is a real time distributed messaging platform, you can read about NSQ at nsq.io.
The kamailio.org website has been updated to use a responsive theme. The old skin was built during 2010-2011, the corresponding wordpress theme was not updated for few years, lacking the responsive layout.
The new look keeps the same clean and clear approach. One of the major changes was the need to widget-ize the sidebar on the right, which used to be the main navigation menu for most of the resources provided by Kamailio project. Several of them were left on the new right sidebar and the rest along with new resources were indexed by the menus at the bottom of the pages.
The main page for kamailio.org is planned to be reorganized with a fresh design in the near future as well, building on top of the framework provided by the new wordpress template.
Suggestions on how to organize the website and its menus for better accessibility or more suggestive navigation are very welcome! Email us to .
The schedule is pretty much nailed down, with some adjustments still expected to happen. The event starts like the past edition with a half a day of technical workshops, followed by two full conference days.
A larger group of speakers is participating to this edition. There was a big number of speaking proposals and we wanted to highlight more of the people that had a relevant contribution to the evolution of the project. To accommodate properly, two more discussion panels were added, keeping also the classic VUC panel.
The topics cover many of the interesting aspects of real time communications, from security and scalability to WebRTC and VoLTE, touching Kamailio and other open source projects like Asterisk or FreeSwitch.

The next Kamailio Devel Meeting on IRC has been planned for Thursday, April 21, 2016, at 14:00UTC (10:00 New York, 15:00 London, 16:00 Berlin), on #kamailio channel from freenode.net.
As usual, it will be a chat session between all Kamailio community members, developers and users, to discuss the plans to next major releases and various admin bits related to the project. This time we are talking about Kamailio 5.0, which aims to bring some significant features, including the ability to write all the routing logic in a well known scripting language (e.g., Lua, Python), with the option to reload it without a restart and, of course, offering a larger set of statements, libraries and tools around it. The old config file will stay in place as well.
A wiki page was set up to collect the topics and other details about the meeting:
Let’s Encrypt is a free certificate authority launched in the second part of 2015, recently leaving the beta stage – from September 2015 to April 2016, they issued over 1.7 millions certificates.
Started by Mozilla and backed up by big IT players and organization (e.g., Internet Society, Cisco, HP, Microsoft, Facebook, …), it offers free TLS certificates that are trusted by all the major operating systems and browsers out there. In other words, you don’t have to pay for a TLS certificate, meaning that it is no reason to support HTTPS for your web server and SIP over TLS for your VoIP service.
Our Fred Posner made a blog article showing how simple is to deploy a Let’s Encrypt certificate for Kamailio – you can read it at:
Kamailio has one of the best and scalable TLS implementations, with asynchronous support since 2008, already deployed by large IM mobile services servicing millions of active users. If you don’t have TLS enabled in your Kamailio, it’s time to act, it costs nothing now and brings full privacy to your customers connecting over the public internet!
Of course, kamailio.org website is already using a Let’s Encrypt certificate.
Daniel-Constantin Mierla, co-founder of Kamailio project, will be there to give the updates and answer the questions from the audience.
You can join the conference remotely via SIP or dialling one the many local PSTN numbers as well as listening via web or watching the video live streaming. Questions can be posted also via IRC channel #vuc on freenode.net. You can see more details about the ways to connect on the VUC website:
