"Finally, there is a new long-term support (LTS) version of the open source Asterisk VoIP IP-PBX system. Asterisk 1.8 is being released this week, marking the first new LTS for Asterisk since the 1.4 release in 2006 .

"The new Asterisk 1.8 release is intended to be supported for at least the next four years, as part of a new support model the project first discussed earlier this year. Asterisk 1.8 packs in a long list of new features, including reverse call display and integrated Google Voice support.

""This is huge news for people that are building commercial systems or their own phone system out of Asterisk, as they'll get four years of support from Digium," Steve Sokol product manager at Digium told InternetNews.com. "So if people are looking to jump in and start developing a solution based on Asterisk, this is the right time."
