June 16, 2014 FreePBX has released updates that fix several vulnerabilities in Asterisk®. Users of the FreePBX Distro can use the provided update scripts or SysAdmin Pro module to update their existing systems.
We have added some new features to XactDialer and before we push them into the stable version, we want to get as many people testing them as possible. So we have created a BETA trial license that we have opened up so anyone can add XactDialer to a supported installation of FreePBX to test and give feedback on these new features.
Back six months ago Google announced they would discontinue the mechanism that allowed 3rd party applications to access the Google voice services. This day is rapidly approaching and as it does the services that acted as as a gateway are also winding down. The big day is May 15th, 2014 and anyone who missed the memo will be left in the cold. I would like to encourage any users who are currently utilizing these back doors and gateways to move on sooner than later.
If you dont have your FreePBX system setup to provide you notifications of updates you should. For those who do you will have received notice of a new module named “userman”. I am pleased to announce the “User Management” module This module lays the groundwork for the future of how you manage users in FreePBX and in how users will manage themselves.
FreePBX and Schmooze are pleased to announce the addition of a new member to the FreePBX Team. James Finstrom will be joining Schmooze as our new Community Manager.
