FreeSWITCH Weekly News and Notes

Submitted by mcollins on Mon, 11/19/2012 - 18:15

Happy short week to those of you in North America!
The weekly FreeSWITCH news and notes took a hiatus while I was out on a medical leave. I am happy to report that I am back to work and recovering nicely. Many thanks to those who sent their well-wishes and happy thoughts. We have a great community and I am glad to be a part of it!
On last week's conference call we covered some Linux/FreeSWITCH install and configuration tips. A special thanks to Ken Rice for giving us some practical information on many of the useful files and utility items that are available in the FreeSWITCH source tree and how to implement them, including FreeSWITCH init scripts, Anthony's .emacs file, and even a monit configuration example. I hope you found these items as useful as I did.
We recently released FreeSWITCH 1.2.4 and Ken Rice tells me that more updates are in the works. More information will be available on this week's conference call. This week I will be presenting a Wiki how-to: adding a channel variable page. This will be especially useful because it illustrates a number of Mediawiki concepts. Also, we have a lot of missing channel variables so if everyone picks one or two to add we'll be able to expand the wiki coverage. 
Have a great week!
