Trixbox 1.1 and an update released!

If you were an asterisk@home fan, now it has become trixbox! So they have a new site but the sourceforge site is the same (asterisk@home).
What ever they do, they are doing a better job each time. If you are a developer/user (may be other way around) this is a site that must be on your list. Click on the header to go to their news site.
Here is the release note from the site;
trixbox 1.1 released today. The only new feature is Munin a system monitoring package. There are tones of small fixes. Zaptel and conferencing should be working. The latest SugarCRM is included. I will try to get a 1.1 upgrade script ready for next week but 1.0.3 that installs from the upgraded script now should have all the conferencing and zaptel fixes.
All of the non opensource packages have been removed from the ISO so if you use HUDlite you will need to type install-hudlite from command line.
The update news is here;
The new 1.1.1 update is available just type “ update” from the command line. This update adds all of the 1.1 functionality and also adds PHP 4.3.11 We were having a lot of problems with SugarCRM because the version of PHP that comes with CentOS is not supported by Sugar.
