FreeSWITCH Weekly News and Notes

Welcome to October! I hope the weather is nice where you are. Here it's still above 100F. :)
Last week was a little bit quieter than the previous few weeks. I had a chance to work on the FreeSWITCH change log and I made a list of some of the APIs, dialplan tools, and channel variables. These have all been added since 1.2.0 was initially released in early August. All of them have wiki entries - thanks to those who took the initiative to do add them. Feel free to add your knowledge and experience to the mix.
Last week's conference call was an object lesson in the challenges of getting a SIP proxy working with TLS and FreeSWITCH. This week we are going to change direction and look at something that has been slowly (and painfully) advancing the past few years: mobile VoIP. We will be having Daniel Pocock share with us some information about Lumicall, an open source mobile VoIP client for Android devices. There is also a service component to Lumicall and we'll be learning about that as well. Come join us to see the state of mobile VoIP.
We are working on some fresh presentations for later this month. We hope to have an update on and how we can all get involved. We are also preparing a presentation on how to perform some of the data-gathering techniques that are needed for basic and advanced troubleshooting. If you have some input on these or other presentations please let me or Ken Rice know.
