The Evolution of Asterisk (or: How We Arrived at Asterisk 10)

Jul 22, 2011, 17:00 (0 Talkback[s])

"We are fast approaching the seven-year anniversary of the release of Asterisk 1.0.0, which occurred at the first AstriCon in September, 2004. If you look back a little further, there were various "0.x" releases made as early as December of 1999… my, how time has flown!...

"The conclusion that we've reached, and that we hope you'll agree with, is that Asterisk is always going to be Asterisk, and that you don't need a 1. prefix on the version number to be able to identify it. So, starting with the next major release, we're going to drop the 1. completely. The next major release, which was going to be Asterisk 1.10, will now be just Asterisk 10 and subsequent major releases will be Asterisk 11, Asterisk 12, and so forth."
