GNU Bayonne 1.2.0 released

David Sugar writes "(April 20, Bayonne, NJ) With this notification, we are distributing a
new stable release, 1.2.0, of GNU Bayonne, the telephony server of the
GNU project. This new release is meant to bring many of the recent
enhancements of the 1.1 development releases of GNU Bayonne into a
stable and production ready deployment, Along with this release, the
original GNU Bayonne documentation has been extensively re-written to
reflect both user needs and the extensive changes and rapid innovation
found in the Bayonne 1.1 development tree.

Many important changes have been introduced into GNU Bayonne recently,
including direct support for embedding SQL statements in telephony
scripting. Support for many GNU Bayonne supported computer telephony
drivers have been greatly improved since the 1.0 stable releases. Most
noteworthy of these is that 1.2.0 provides functional support for
generic CAPI 2.0 based telephony hardware (both basic rate and primary
rate cards) under GNU/Linux, where in past releases CAPI support had
been marginal at best. GNU Bayonne 1.2.0 also provides a stable branch
release with support for high density Intel/Dialogic hardware that uses
`globalcall' under GNU/Linux. The 1.2 stable branch also introduces a
stable branch with PBX support using computer telephony hardware from
Voicetronix. GNU Bayonne PBX support, while experimental for a long
time, has been standardized to the point of being part of a new stable

An important change from the point of view of distribution is that we no
longer include most of the formally extensive voice libraries in the
distributed 1.2.0 bayonne tarball. This was done to greatly reduce the
distribution size of GNU Bayonne itself, as it has now become many
megabytes, most of which are static voice libraries for different
languages. Instead, we have added support to bayonne to enable the
system administrator to download voice libraries when they are required
directly from ftp.gnu.org, and install them on the local server.
