Get your hands on FreePBX2.2beta2 and support the development.

I was over at FreePBX site today and noticed that Rob Thomas has posted about FreePBX 2.2Beta2. What else to do I immediately downloaded and is running on my VMware CentOS partition. First I missed some perquisites but after fixing those system is performing as expected.
Most notable changes are; from Rob's article;
* The facelift! This actually involved a huge amount of work under the bonnet, including a totally new way of hooking modules in - eg, when you enable the Dictation module, you now configure it from the actual extension.
* Ring Groups and Follow-Me with Confirmation (eg, you have to actually accept the call, so your voicemail doesn’t steal it)
* System Recordings allows you to chain together recordings, and use built-in recordings
* And, a pile of new modules (Caller ID blacklisting, SpeedDials, Caller ID Lookup, Dictation, Call Parking Configuration, Phonebook, and a few more)
But I need time to go through all those changes, specially I need my hardware available for day to day operation and I am awaiting some hardware I ordered from Digium to have complete test rig.
Also there is a wiki site setup that will help to report about and to track bugs.
So go get you hands on it.
