New Release is a Great Success – Las Vegas for Training?


FreePBX 2.4.0 Looking Great

It has been about a week since FreePBX 2.4.0 went final and we already have over 3000 installations running, of which over 2200 of them have successfully upgraded with the new 2.3 to 2.4 upgrade module that was published just 5 days ago. (Not counting the hundreds of 2.4 rc1 and beta systems which have not yet upgraded but some of which are probably active.) Given the almost deadening silence in the bug tracker, we might mark this as the most successful new release to date!

For those of you wondering what we are seeing in terms of Asterisk versions these days, on 2.4 installations it is just about 70% Asterisk 1.4 and 30% 1.2, and of course those few systems living on the edge beta testing 1.6 for the community.

If you are running version 2.3 you can press the button below to purchase your guilt free upgrade pass to benefit from all our hard labor in making this upgrade so easy and so successful for you!


Open Telephony Training Seminar – West Coast

With our first training class sold out and just a week away we have gotten inquiries asking when and where our next training event will be. We are currently in discussions to see if we can bring you the next event in Las Vegas, NV the week of April 8th, 2008 which is coming up quick. We are looking at this location to help those on the West Coast who did not want to come clear across the country to Charleston. Las Vegas also has the benefit of low cost airfair and the availability of very reasonable hotel rates. Whether you end up winning the cost of your training at the craps table we can not say but from what we’ve heard from some of you, this would be a good location.

Please reply to this thread if you are considering coming and let us know if this works for you. We are always open to hearing what might work – but if we are to get this next one scheduled soon we need to move quickly!

  1. Would the Las Vegas seminar essentially be the same as the one in Charleston? I would be interested in going if I could, say, attend classes piecemeal that would address wholly separate topics from those covered in Charleston.

  2. Just an update on our current thoughts – given that early April is coming up quick and somewhat short notice to work with some of the vendors who get involved with our training events, we are leaning towards the suggestion of a few of the posts here and pushing the Las Vegas training out into May – so stay tuned and continue to provide your feedback.
  3. That sucks as there are great deals to fly in April and no more direct flights + double the cost after that for me.

    The piecemeal suggestion would be good. I’m mostly interested in the sales/marketing part.

  4. For those of you who have been keeping an eye on this, see the new blog post and access to early registration:

  5. If you can get a handful of people who require training in your region, we could arrange a localized training that would minimize travel expenses and time. You can contact us directly to inquire. The training material is not available outside of the training class at this time.
