Yate 2 has been released after going through Alpha and beta cycles testing. But it comes at a time when the Open Source telephony is going through some changes in the SIP frontier at the moment. As we reported OpenSER became Kamailio and got a new fork called OpenSIPS.
YATE 2.0's new features include analog lines, robbed bit, SS7, passive recording on E1/T1 and analogic, clustering, high availability, MGCP, and Jingle. libpri was replaced with ysig. In YateClient, jingle support was added and the interface was improved. The GTK interface was replaced with a Qt interface.
- Support for more hardware interfaces and protocols - added SS7, analogic support, RBS, better ISDN, passive recording
- Clustering, balancing and failover support, Linux-HA integration
- Improved client functionality - switched from GTK to Qt
- Easier involvement of the Yate community - swtched from CVS to SVN
- Added MGCP and Jingle support
