GNU Bayonne 1.2.0 released

With this notification, we are distributing a new stable release, 1.2.0, of GNU Bayonne, the telephony server of the GNU project. This new release is meant to bring many of the recent enhancements of the 1.1 development releases of GNU Bayonne into a stable and production ready deployment, Along with this release, the original GNU Bayonne documentation has been extensively re-written to reflect both user needs and the extensive changes and rapid innovation found in the Bayonne 1.1 development tree.


Many important changes have been introduced into GNU Bayonne recently, including direct support for embedding SQL statements in telephony scripting. Support for many GNU Bayonne supported computer telephony drivers have been greatly improved since the 1.0 stable releases. Most noteworthy of these is that 1.2.0 provides functional support for generic CAPI 2.0 based telephony hardware (both basic rate and primary rate cards) under GNU/Linux, where in past releases CAPI support had been marginal at best. The 1.2 stable branch also introduces a release branch with PBX support using computer telephony hardware from Voicetronix. GNU Bayonne PBX support, while experimental for a long time, has been standardized to the point of being part of the new release branch.

An important change from the point of view of distribution is that we no longer include most of the formally extensive voice libraries in the distributed 1.2.0 bayonne tarball. This was done to greatly reduce the distribution size of GNU Bayonne itself, as it has now become many megabytes, most of which are static voice libraries for different languages. Instead, we have added support to bayonne to enable the system administrator to download voice libraries when they are required directly from ftp.gnu.org, and install them on the local server.
