Testing Status

Testing Suspended November 2021

Weekly testing has been suspended since it's been several months (early August) since Freeswitch built successfully on macOS.

You may install Freeswitch from Homebrew at this time. There is no currently no information about the Homebrew version.

Weekly macOS testing was performed only on Intel Macs at this time, M1 Arm testing may begin 2022 if building on macOS resumes. 

All macOS versions are installed into new volumes with the latest Apple Command Line Tools. Upgraded systems are never used.
