Our development team has been hard at work expanding the Open Source components of FreePBX, and have recently released and alpha version of FreePBX 13. Now is the time to load up a system and give it a test drive. We have added lots of new goodies into the platform, and need as many people testing and contributing potential bug reports and feature requests as possible.

FWConsole TrunksWe’ve made major visual changes, such as a new summary of entries for modules, a global search navigation bar and a bootstrap interface that provides modernization of the GUI elements of FreePBX. We also updated call logging utilizing CEL (Call Event Logs) allowing you to see the full life and path of a call and channel in the call records.

Indepth plumbing updates, including expanded use of the BMO framework, and deprecated older database schemas to move to faster and more secure alternatives. We have also added a new CLI feature set with the launch of the FWConsole framework. FWConsole is replacing the ‘amportal command’ and adds a new layer of access to FreePBX that allows you to directly manipulate certain aspects of your system without the need for a web browser. For example you can use the command ‘fwconsole trunk list” to list your trunks, using the onscreen commands you can then enable and disable specific trunks.

Summary: FreePBX 13 is prettier and more powerful than our previous releases.
