FreeSWITCH Project Releases Version 1.4 Beta with WebRTC Media Support

Submitted by mcollins on Wed, 06/19/2013 - 18:36

The FreeSWITCH team is very proud to announce that FreeSWITCH 1.4 beta is now available. The community will benefit greatly from all of the effort that has gone into producing a version of FreeSWITCH that supports WebRTC media streams.
WebRTC is a technology poised for explosive growth. By some estimates, there will be three billion WebRTC-enabled devices and endpoints by 2016. Having this new technology in FreeSWITCH will ensure that developers and users will always have a robust platform on which to build solutions that can utilize WebRTC, VoIP, and traditional telephony. Additionally, FreeSWITCH allows these solutions to be built completely with FOSS technologies.
