If you've been on top of the online module repository then you may have noticed that the last Framework and Core update brought your 2.11 system up to final release state. As we discussed in one of our last blogs this has been a long release but we are excited to mark it final and equally excited to see how many systems out there are running it in production!
Used to pull articles into the Recent News and Announcements Sidebar
We usually have quite a few beta sites up before moving to a release candidate but having over 10,000 beta systems out there is a bit of a record:) … maybe a little embarrassing that we did not 'deem' it release candidate quality some time ago. With all that said though, we have now rolled the release candidate and given how heavily 2.11 has been tested and is in production, it's simply a formality and we should be moving to final release within a week or so!
I am going to try and start a weekly Saturday morning technical blog about some cool Tip or Trick you can do with FreePBX that most people are not aware of. As anyone who knows me over the years spelling and grammar are not by strong suite so please do not take offense if you find mistakes. I am here to try and provide valuable technical information.
If you have any request for things you would like me to go more indepth on please feel free to comment here and I will see if I can cover it for you in a future blog.
So over the past 3 years Schmooze has acquired and designed alot of Documentation from Videos, UserGuides and Sales Slicks around all things related to our PBX and FreePBX. We have decided that trying to maintain all these different sites of documentation and yes even at Schmooze we had 3 different places our resellers and customers could find Documentation to combine all this into 1 place and also let the FreePBX users benefit from our collection of information.

We pride ourselves on clearly communicating when we have customer impacting product and services issues. This process allows our customers and business partners vital information needed to react to service impacting outages.
Looking to improve this process and provide a notification means outside of our infrastructure we have created a new Support/Service Status only Blog.
If you spend time around our forums and website then introductions are hardly needed. Almost 3 years ago we listened to our user base and evolved from the FreePBX application to the FreePBX Distro, with all the added security and great engineering enhancements that came with controlling a whole Distro. This would not have been possible without the partnership of Schmooze Com, Inc. who stepped up to the plate in providing and completely running the Distro project. Along with that partnership came thousands of hours of selfless contributions back to the project and can be clearly seen from all the improvements in FreePBX all the way to our website infrastructure and 'shiny new facelift' which Schmooze drove and significantly contributed to.
January 23, 2013, Today we launch a major new product in the FreePBX ecosystem. For the first time FreePBX will have a commercially supported and developed End Point ManagerBX End Point Manager allows administrators to auto configure and provision over 150 different devices from 15 different manufactures all from the FreePBX GUI interface.
Another quick update after the first day of operations..
As Tony pointed out (his blog repeated below) a lot of us worked over the weekend and in some cases all night to get the new site migrated! Kudos to them and the several contributors who have been spending countless hours over the last several weeks updating contents and getting some great documentation into the wiki! Go have a look…
