Testing Status

M1 ARM64 Status

April 15 - Weekly macOS testing is done on Intel Macs, not M1. There is currently no time frame set for when M1 testing will start. However, the 5 remaining prerequisites must have an arm64 version before M1 testing begins.

Prerequisites status:

All 104 homebrew supplied packages now have an arm64 Big Sur version.

None of the 5 Freeswitch supplied homebrew packages have an arm64 Big Sur version. 

Every macOS version is freshly installed into new volumes with the latest Command Line Tools. Upgraded systems or libraries are never used.

macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer (macFI)

The macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer is the recommended method because it automates all of the manual steps, providing much simpler and faster installation. Other advantages include renaming existing FreeSWITCH™ directories before installation, and creating installation logs. The macFI information and download is located at macOS macFI Installation.

The macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer performs identical functions as a manual installation with additions such as logging.

Manual Installation
