FreePBX team has released the FreePBX 2.5.0 Beta with the FreePBX 2.5.0alpha1 available for download.
As mentioned it is still alpha, the feature set is not frozen yet. That means many things to many people but if you are a FreePBX user and if you want to promote any features that is important you that is still open under the 2.5 Milestone. Perhaps you wan to ask for something entirely different from the team. One way to influence them is making a donation.
But if you are just a user you may want to test and provide feedback regarding the features so that the development will get underway for final release.
The Milestone 2.5 link above and the CHANGES document that comes with every new release will show you a summary and detailed list of tickets that have been associated with this release. This is very strongly recommended.
Please note that the OTTS, Open Telephone Training Seminar, has a date change introduced, that we published earlier.
