Today’s final session of Astricon was an update on Asterisk 10, Asterisk SCF and DAHDI, the Digium hardware driver.
SCF, the scalable distributed framework, will go beta in November or December. The Digium folks pointed the audience to the Asterisk project wiki for more information, so I will do the same and point you to it: Asterisk SCF Home (wiki). SCF was announced at last year’s Astricon and my take on it is that it will make Asterisk enterprise- and carrier-grade.
Asterisk 10 has some great improvements related to media handling, conferencing, and FAX. Digium’s Steve Sokol gave a great interview to TMC blogger Tom Keating: Asterisk 10 – The Inside Story.
