Happy 2011 and a 2.9 Update

My how time passes quickly! I'm hoping everyone had a great holiday season and New Years! WIth all the holiday activities and the heads down work that has been going on with version 2.9 I've been a little delinquent giving you an update. So for now here is a quick update and we'll be back shortly for more.

I [url=/news/2010-11-17/features-we-are-considering-for-2-9] blogged a few weeks back on 2.9[/url] thoughts and [url=/news/2010-11-24/more-thoughts-on-2-9]some more thoughts shortly after.[/url] There has been a lot of great feedback and other ideas presented which are all being looked at and considered. More to come on that.

We’ve made some good progress on some of the original list, along with other bits and pieces which have found there way in. (e.g. How many of you have been asking for Call Confirmation in Queues like Ring Groups have? Well stay tuned because that is mostly there!). There is still plenty more to go and we have yet to dig through a lot of outstanding tickets where some of you have contributed useful pieces of code, but that time is still coming.

For those of you brave souls who help us by running out of SVN trunk (which is 2.9), please beware that we just did a big merge from the bootstrap branch and there are likely to be some bumps in the road while we start testing this out with more eyes. Please report any bugs you find and we’ll try to stay on top of it. This change also incorporates the main plumbing moving the amportal.conf settings into the database and allowing them to be changed in the GUI. There is a bunch more work on this to clean it up and make it more presentable, but under the covers, that is how it should be working.

For now, that’s a quick update if you were wondering what happened to us! If you happen to keep your eye on the trac timeline then I’m sure you had no doubt we were keeping busy!
