Asterisk 11, Now Available

Digium and the Asterisk Development Team are pleased to announce the release of Asterisk 11. Asterisk 11 is available for immediate download from the Asterisk.org website.

Asterisk 11 is the next major release of Asterisk. It is a Long Term Support (LTS) release, similar to Asterisk 1.8. For more information about support time lines for Asterisk releases, please see the Asterisk versions page. And, for important information regarding upgrading to Asterisk 11, please see the Asterisk wiki.

Asterisk 11 includes a number of major new features including:

  • WebRTC Support with WebSocket transport over SIP.
  • DTLS-SRTP – A secure transport for RTP media streams used by WebRTC and SIP endpoints.
  • ICE, STUN and TURN – A set of related technologies for establishing live media streams between software agents running behind network address translators (NATs) and firewalls. ICE, STUN and TURN have been incorporated into the Asterisk RTP engine as part of the effort to support WebRTC.
  • Motif – A new channel driver for supporting the Jingle protocol and Google Talk. Motif combines functions previously spread across multiple channels, and makes use of a new and more standards-compliant XMPP implementation.

More information about the new features can be found on the Asterisk 11 Documentation wiki page and a full list of all new features can be found in the CHANGES file.

Thank you for your continued support of Asterisk!
