When did that show up?

BTW, updated screen looks better. :+1:

To answer my own question…

asterisk-version-switch was updated when I ran updates back on December 20th.

Totally missed that.

All switched and running smooth.

Right now, production systems should probably be running 16, but I’ve been running 18 on my test systems for a while without any issues.

I will always disagree with that. Only running LTS is wrong.

So is running a version that no longer is actively supported and is in Security Fix Only status. Right now 16 and 18 (both LTS) are the only active and supported releases of Asterisk.

I mean traditionally there’s always one year where no Standard releases are supported or active. The only time I can recall in recent history that wasn’t the case was 15 being released as Standard instead of LTS.

The type of admin that does the set-it-and-forget-it approach, will benefit from using LTS. That’s the reason I have for recommending it over the current non-LTS version.

Should be fired. It is 2021. Everything is attacked and hacked on a regular basis.

I don’t even have half the tin foil hat that @dicko does and even I would never even consider that type of approach to anything.
