FreeSWITCH Weekly News and Notes

Happy December to everyone!
Last week was painful for many of us as we were dealing with a sustained DDoS attack on most of our infrastructure. Kudos to the guys for working through it. It seems the worst is over and we can get back to the business at hand: doing FreeSWITCH stuff. :)

In spite of the drama last week we did have a conference call and we released! We discussed mostly the details of the DDoS we experienced and how the community can assist in the future so that we can mitigate the effects of such an occurrence. With the community's help we will be more resistant to the effects of any future attacks. We appreciate the outpouring of support we received from everyone.

This week we will go back to discussing FreeSWITCH. We are still finalizing future guests so this week we'll do another installment of tips and tricks from the FreeSWITCH community. Among other things I will be showing how Chris Rienzo (IRC: crienzo) and I used the source this weekend to figure out what the XML preprocessor can do and get the wiki updated. I'll then show a simple example of the always-present-but-previously-undocumented command can do. As an added bonus we'll have an update on the ClueCon 2012 videos!

Thanks and have a great week.
