"Today I am announcing the 7th major release of GNU Bayonne for developing free software based telephony application services. Using a commodity PC platform running GNU/Linux and multi-line telephony hardware available from numerous vendors, GNU Bayonne has already been used to create and deploy commercial voice applications that interface with the public telephone network. Such applications can include basic services like Voice Mail, as well as web integrated voice commerce (v-commerce) and customer relations management systems. GNU Bayonne will offer scalability to support deployment of carrier grade enhanced services under free operating systems.

This new version provides improved support for building digital telephony services and applications under free software by adding support for CAPI based BRI cards. An important contributor in this effort has been Kai Germaschewski, who is better known for his work related to ISDN4Linux and CAPI4Linux.

GNU Bayonne also supports Voicetronix hardware, which offers low cost multi-post analog DSP telephony cards. Voicetronix was the first telephony card vendor to release their drivers and api under the GPL, supporting the GNU Bayonne project from the start."
