FreePBX Distro 4.211.64 marked "Stable" on Wiki: so what's next?

If FreePBX Distro 4.211.64 <a href=>was marked “Stable” few days ago (and we all know FreePBX Distro 3.211.63 is Stable too), is there now a FreePBX Distro Beta or not?

I mean:

  1. Is FreePBX Distro 4.211.64 really ready for use into a production environment (like FreePBX Distro 3.211.63 is)?
  2. Should we consider to migrate from a Stable FreePBX Distro 3.211.63 (-10) to 4.211.64 (-4)?
  3. If "Yes"...practically why?
  4. Is there maybe a relationship between the FreePBX Distro's roadmap and CentOS next release so it's better to migrate now?

Regards, Davide.

I would be interested too, to find answers to these questions!


We are running 2 stable tracks currently. You can upgrade to the 4.211.64 track as that is where all active development is happening right now. For example the newly coming out today version of 4.211.64-5 includes DAHDI 2.7 now where 3.211.63 will remain on DAHDI 2.6.

We dont have a current Beta track at this time as nothing is that major of a upgrade that requires Beta but that will change in the future.

Is there an update path from the current 3.x release to the now stable 4.x release? Sort of hoping there is, being CentOS 6.3 to 6.4 isn’t a major jump…

Never mind, here I was looking in the 4.x for an update to take me to it, I see it’s in the 3.x section… DOH!

Thanks Tony, so basically AFAIK answers are (more or less) four “Yes”.

Said so I’m going to migrate from FreePBX Distro 3.211.63-10 via -100 script to FreePBX Distro 4.211.64-1 and then I’ll follow the update path using single update step to 4.211.64-2, -3, -4 and finally to -5.

Hope DAHDI 2.7 will be as stable as 2.6 is.

Just one more clarification about FreePBX Distro’s roadmap: will the FreePBX Distro 3.211.63 became EoL (End of Life) in a very near future (before the end of 2013 I mean) to suggest users to start the migration to FreePBX Distro 4.211.64 now?
