""There have been a lot of people asking for some time: When are
you going to port FreeSwitch to FreePBX? It's either because
FreeSwitch is the newer technology, or just because it is the shiny
new object on the block. There may be a lot of reasons," said
Philippe Lindheimer, FreePBX project lead with Bandwidth.com,
corporate sponsor for the open source effort.
"FreePBX has staked out considerable real estate in its five
years of existence. It has been downloaded over 3 million times and
counts approximately 300,000 active phone systems, according to
Bandwidth.com. Targeted at developers, the new release aims to
expand that base by broadening the tool's possible interface
partners beyond Asterisk."
