Project Release Information
Much expansion of integrated Web services for telephony, and introduction of telephony network eventing to allow remote clients to receive Bayonne events serialized as XML over HTTP. The ability to exchange Bayonne documents and audio over the integrated Web server. Support for new and special proxy mode authentication calling in the SIP driver.
This release completes the Bayonne XMLRPC service
and adds a Unix
local socket XMLRPC transport (for those not
wishing to expose Bayonne
internal API access over a network) and more user
destination dialing enhancements.
Support for using Bayonne to operate as a "public" Internet telephony portal or SIP proxy, including the ability for arbitrary outside parties to call Bayonne hosted URI destinations, forwarding and redirecting of calls, and support for virtual "named hosting" of dialing plans.
Dynamic runtime reloading of configuration keys and driver settings is now supported. New simplified dialplan rules for fast hash-based lookup of dialed destinations through dialed.conf. New did/callerid handling rules.
The introduction of integrated Bayonne XMLRPC services to manage and remotely control Bayonne. The introduction of PBX style call session management in the Bayonne architecture.
Bayonne is the telephony server of the GNU project. It offers a script-driven threaded multi-line state event telephony service on GNU/Linux, xBSD, and Microsoft Windows for building voice response systems, and uses telephony plugins for runtime driver configuration. It also features "TGI" for making Perl applications "telephony aware". It may be used to build telephony-based system administration, home automation, automated attendant, v-commerce, and voice messaging systems.
