Distributed Presence For Asterisk in Asterisk 1.6.1.

There were many occasions that we wanted presence information across multiple Asterisk servers. In the past we had to do various gimmicks to get that done ;). But going over the new Asterisk 1.6.1 Now I see that it has been made available to us, mainly due to lot of hard work by Russell Bryant.
According to a post by him on his blog, Asterisk 1.6.1 will have the ability to share device state between servers using a new module, res_ais, which uses the SAForum AIS to share events between Asterisk servers. It has been tested with and developed against the openais implementation of AIS.

You can read his post to find links to the code and follow comments that request (demand) DUNDi over XMPP and vice versa.
