Hi All,

During last three month I have worked on improving functionality of Nortel
phones working with asterisk to replace existing Nortel station by asterisk.
Many improvments done, listed below. I have only i2002 phone and unable to
test if new version of channel correctly works with i2204 phone. If anyone
can test it and report issues, it would be great. Please visit mantis to

.po files in encoding, able to display
ISO 8859-1, ISO 8859-2, ISO 8859-4, ISO 8859-5, ISO 2022-JP. For selecting
language can be used option “language” in
unistim.conf or screen menu.
