Skype for Asterisk will not be available for sale or activation after July 26, 2011. Skype for Asterisk was developed by Digium in cooperation with Skype. It includes proprietary software from Skype that allows Asterisk to join the Skype network as a native client. Skype has decided not to renew the agreement that permits us to package this proprietary software. Therefore Skype for Asterisk sales and activations will cease on July 26, 2011.
This change should not affect any existing users of Skype for Asterisk. Representatives of Skype have assured us that they will continue to support and maintain the Skype for Asterisk software for a period of two years thereafter, as specified in the agreement with Digium. We expect that users of Skype for Asterisk will be able to continue using their Asterisk systems on the Skype network until at least July 26, 2013. Skype may extend this at their discretion.

The release of Asterisk 188.8.131.52 resolves several issues reported by the community. Without your help this release would not have been possible.

Star2Billing are pleased to announce the release of CDR-Stats 1.3. CDR-stats is a replacement for Asterisk-Stats, first released over eight years ago by Areski, The Author of CDR-Stats. Anyone who has used the Call Data Reports in FreePBX will be familiar with Asterisk-Stats as this forms the core of CDR reporting in FreePBX.
CDR-Stats allows reports to be generated in different formats over varying time periods with filters and graphs to compare periods of traffic.
Version 1.3 of CDR-Stats includes a number of enhancements such as providing ACL access to CDR so that users can be controlled in what they are allowed to see. There is more information, screen prints and instructions at http://www.cdr-stats.org
Many of the FreePBX aggregations do not implement ACL access, so if a PBX administrator wants to give access to users to inspect the PBX CDR, then access to the whole PBX is unavoidable, therefore installing CDR-Stats alongside an existing system will allow users to analyse their CDR without compromising the rest of the configuration.
[posted on venturevoip.com] I was one of those people who thought the Asterisk-GUI project was more dead than alive, and one of the reasons that made me suspect it was the jump in the distribution AsteriskNOW Digium Asterisk-GUI to FreePBX, and lack of activity when publishing new versions of the web manager for Asterisk.
Today I find with surprise that not only still alive, if not they just release a "candidate" with a large number of innovations to further improve its stability and adding support for Asterisk 1.6 and Asterisk 1.8 (remember that was Asterisk GUI Asterisk oriented 1.4/1.6).
* Compatible with Asterisk 1.6.x and 1.8
* New option to record MeetMe conferences
* 14459 – AddQueueMember support
