FreeSWITCH Weekly News and Notes

Hello again!
Another busy week in the land of FreeSWITCH. As you know we have been doing some work on the FreeSWITCH project's infrastructure. We are happy to report that this work is essentially complete. Thank you for your patience in this process. We've experienced intermittent outages but thanks to the efforts of Brian West and Raymond Chandler these have been kept to a minimum. We also thank Ken Rice for his hard work during this time. His knowledge and experience have been invaluable.

Last week we had a very interesting discussion from Chad Engler about his nodesl library - a connector between node.js and ESL. Chad describes himself as a Web developer learning the telephony side of things. However, we were all impressed with how much knowledge he had with using ESL given the relatively short amount of time he's been working with it. This week we will be looking in on some Windows-centric ways of handling real-time data and related PBX items. The following week, on October 31, we will be hearing from our friends over at Redshift Networks. They will be giving us close-up look at some of the worldwide SIP attacks that are being perpetrated against FreeSWITCH and other IP telephony servers.

On a personal note I would like to thank everyone who volunteered to be a technical reviewer of the new edition of the FreeSWITCH book. I was overwhelmed with just how many people who are willing to volunteer their time. Packt Publishing will be contacting those who've been selected for this important job. This is a great community and we are all glad to be a part of it.

Take care and have a great week.
