What's new in version 1.4.11

  • As previously announced, this release contains a large number of new features over the 1.2 series; see the CHANGES file in the distribution for the complete list. Before installing this release, be sure to read the UPGRADE.txt file as well, to be aware of changes that were made that will require you to change configuration files or dialplan entries.
  • This version contains numerous bug fixes. One of these is for a security issue in chan_sip. The issue is that SIP dialog history was being stored in memory regardless if the option for this was turned on or off. This could be abused to cause a system using chan_sip to run out of memory.
