"David Sugar, Bayonne GNU maintainer, writes . . . In
finalizing the fourth milestone release for Bayonne (the telephony
server of the GNU project), much work has gone into making Bayonne
not just more stable and usable as a traditional telephony server,
but also in expanding the very definition of computer-driven
telephony services and Bayonne's integration with other existing
services. This milestone is the starting point of Bayonne's
integration with other free software projects and common system
services such as HylaFAX and sendmail."
"This milestone also standardizes international localization for
Bayonne. A new phrasebook ruleset module for French is now
available, along with a contributed French voice vocabulary. This
enables the use of Bayonne in French speaking countries and paves
the way for further language localizations and demonstrates
Bayonne's ability to provide multi-lingual telephony applications.
We are looking for more volunteers to help with additional
languages, voice libraries, and localizations. All interested in
contributing should send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org."
"Parallel to and shortly after the introduction of Bayonne
milestone 4, a new series of "tgi_xxx" packages will appear,
starting with tgi_perl and tgi_guile. The purpose of these packages
is to provide integrated interpreters for tgi work that are
installable thru DSO's and that offer much the same benefit that
"mod_perl" does for apache web servers."
