News, Notes, & Miscellaneous Fun Stuff

  • Thanks to djbinter for adding docs on cdr_csv rotate and dialplan arrays.
  • MSC has been working on the ChangeLog again (finally!)
  • New FreeSWITCH features
    • auto populate global origination_caller_id_name/number from effective_caller_id_name/number in enterprise originate (r:f8c029a1)
    • execute_on_fax_success, execute_on_fax_failure and execute_on_fax_result channel variables to trigger an app or lua script when a fax result is received (r:79e9f19c)
    • add --enable-timerfd-wrapper to wrap timefd syscalls for platforms with the right kernel and wrong libc (r:306b332d)
    • mod_voicemail: Add 2 new profile settings, db-password-override and allow-empty-password-auth. By default, they have value of their previous behavior. If db-password-override=true, the db password will only be used if present, if not present fallback to the xml config file vm-password. If allow-empty-password-auth=false, it will disable login via a authentication method if there is no password set in the user account (This wont affect voicemail_authorize=true login). (r:a9db642a)
    • new show option: show detailed_calls: add new detailed_calls view a version of the channels table that shows only one legged calls or bridged calls (r:beecd937)
    • add NDLB-allow-nondup-sdp to indicate you want to parse a differnt sdp in 200 ok from 1xx (previous default) this is a RFC violation so I decided not to support it by default anymore. Enable this if you want that broken behaviour (r:3f489a2a)
    • sdp_m_per_ptime is now implied to be true, if you don't like this set it to false but its going to be undefined behaviour. This basically means if you call in with ptime 30 then you have a bunch of ptime 20 codecs in your outbound list that there will be one m= line with 30 and the original inbound codec and more m= lines for each discinct ptime in your list. This is, of course, will depend on disable_trancoding or absolute_codec_string as well (r:56d67ead)
    • update show calls to show both 1 legged calls and bridged calls, also show bridged_calls for previous behaviour of show calls (r:c16c74d9)
    • add message_len to output of vm_list api command (r:77c5000d)
    • make valet parking reserve a space for 10 seconds to allow time for an attended transfer switcharoo (r:308f44af)
    • mod_shout: add ability to set bitrate, samplerate, and encoder quality in config file (r:8ea3cbd5/FS-1231)
    • add max_sessions to heartbeat event (r:9c8437a1/FS-3415)
    • add emulation for asterisk DIALSTATUS magic var (r:9d98d49f) <== done during ClueCon! see ML thread

Suggestions For Future Meetings & Future To Dos

  • Math: Sofia internals
  • Eliot Gable: mod_ha_cluster
    • What is mod_ha_cluster?
      • In short: N+X (N Masters + X slaves) HA replacement for "Pacemaker + Corosync managed FS"
    • What is planned for mod_ha_cluster?
      • In short: manage interfaces, IPs, firewall rules, master/slave status; eventually, share registrations and call states without shared DB and do 'sofia recover' on failover
    • When will it be available?
      • In short: Master/slave, interface, IPs, and firewall management within the next couple of months (if I have the amount of time available that I expect to have)
    • For additional details, or if you would like to beta test, be on the call
  • Jeff Lenk: developing for FS in Windows environment
