User Notes:

  • AMI: Add parking position parameter to Park action

    New ParkingSpace parameter has been added to AMI action Park.

  • res_musiconhold: Add option to loop last file.

    The loop_last option in musiconhold.conf now
    allows the last file in the directory to be looped once reached.

  • AMI: Add CoreShowChannelMap action.

    New AMI action CoreShowChannelMap has been added.

  • sig_analog: Add fuller Caller ID support.

    Additional Caller ID properties are now supported on
    incoming calls to FXS stations, namely the
    redirecting reason and call qualifier.

  • res_stasis.c: Add new type ‘sdp_label’ for bridge creation.

    When creating a bridge using the ARI the ‘type’ argument now
    accepts a new value ‘sdp_label’ which will configure the bridge to add
    labels for each stream in the SDP with the corresponding channel id.

  • app_queue: Preserve reason for realtime queues

    Make paused reason in realtime queues persist an
    Asterisk restart. This was fixed for non-realtime
    queues in ASTERISK_25732.

Upgrade Notes:

  • app_queue: Preserve reason for realtime queues

    Add a new column to the queue_member table:
    reason_paused VARCHAR(80) so the reason can be preserved.
