Caller ID Superfecta Maintenance Release v2.2.3 is now available

I am pleased to announce the immediate release and availability of the caller ID Superfecta module for FreePBX version 2.2.3.
http://projects.colsolgrp.net/projects/list_files/superfecta

Scope of Release
In version 2.2.3, several minor bugs were addresses -- and support for the new output only data source functionality has been included. As of this release, there are now 33 data sources -- those that collect data, and those that announced data through various external methods.
http://projects.colsolgrp.net/versions/show/56

Upon upgrading from previous versions of caller ID Superfecta, all your previous data sources, and their settings should be retained. Note: Some data sources may have different configuration requirements after upgrade than they did before. It’s a good idea to click through each of your selected data sources and make sure that any required configuration items are present, and set as you desire.

"Send to" Data Source Functionality
The Ability to send caller ID data to sources outside the PBX or telephones connected to it has been growing steadily in the forums for the last 30 days or so. The first data source created to send caller ID in this way was a data source to send the caller ID information to a running occurrence of the program XBMC. Since then several others have been added:

source-Send_to_Dreambox.php (Contributed by dev member Peter)
source-Send_to_Squeezebox_Server.php (Contributed by dev member Peter)
source-Send_to_XBMC.php (Contributed by tshif and Developer Patrick)
source-Send_to_YAC.php (Contributed by dev member Peter)
source-Send_to_Winunciator.php (Contributed by tshif, requested by user Cyrano)

These "send only" data sources allow users to send their caller ID information to a wide variety of third-party programs or processes.

The Win-nunciator
The Winnunciator is a little different than the other sources mentioned above. The Win-nunciator data source is designed to work with a companion Windows program called the Superfecta Win-nunciator. The Superfecta Win-nunciator is a lightweight Windows program (less than 10 K. in memory when running), that uses the Microsoft speech API (SAPI) to verbally speak the caller ID name and telephone number at any Windows workstation. The Windows Superfecta Win-nunciator program should be just right to meet several kinds of needs. The Win-nunciator also displays the textual caller ID number and caller ID name while speaking it. To use the "send to Winnunciator" data source, be sure and download the companion Win-nunciator executable setup program, located in the regular Superfecta download repository.

Minimum Requirements
As the caller ID Superfecta system evolves, changes are made to support new functionality. As an example, the new "send to" only data sources require the Superfecta version 2.2.3 module to operate correctly. Effective with this release, data sources with known prerequisites such as this will have those prerequisites listed in the flyby help that pops up when you hover over the data source name.

That’s it for 2.2.3 – as always please let us know how the new version, and these really exciting new "send to" data sources work for you.
