The ACS project is pleased to announce support for "/dev/phone" based telephony devices as found in the newest Linux kernels (2.2.14 and above) with the newest release of ACS, available for immediate download. ACS offers a scriptable GPL licensed multi-line telephony server for the Linux operating system and already supports both Pika and Voicetronix hardware under Linux. With the addition of "/dev/phone" support, ACS can now be used with Quicknet LineJack cards and future telephony hardware that may choose to support /dev/phone based drivers.

ACS also offers TGI (Telephony Gateway Interface) and a new TGI perl module to support development of telephony enabled perl scripts for database query, telephone based system administration, and telephony web integration, as well as ACS's own native scripting environment and dynamically loadable telephony "plugins". ACS demonstrates that highly reliable multi-line telephony solutions can be successfully developed and deployed under Linux.
