New GUI for Asterisk, Callware Voiceone.

A Source forge based Open Source project has developed an Management Gui for the IPPBX, Asterisk. I know all of you will say Go for Trixbox (I am already there ;)) but I want to give exposure to all applications that enhance Asterisk. I have not tried the product yet an all information I am providing is based on VoiceOne website.
The current release is 0.4.2. If you are a code Guru, you can grab the SVN version from the Sourceforge site.
From the outlook of the product, it seems promising. The interface is based on PHP and even though it is in it's infancy many a features listed below are functional. They have an online demo that you could test out application and the function. Since these interfaces to Asterisk are personal tastes, some may prefer VoiceOne and asterisk to Trixbox!
Following are the feature list from the web site. So even if you already have Asterisk IPPBX management console, go check it out, give a boost to OSS developers.
* Client/Server architecture based on web services
