The Asterisk Development Team is pleased to announce the release of Asterisk This release is available for immediate download at

The release of Asterisk resolves several issues reported by the community and would have not been possible without your participation.

Thank you!

The following is a sample of the issues resolved in this release:

* AST-2012-001: prevent crash when an SDP offer is received with an encrypted video stream when support for video is disabled and res_srtp is loaded. (closes issue ASTERISK-19202)
Reported by: Catalin Sanda

* Handle AST_CONTROL_UPDATE_RTP_PEER frames in local bridge loop. Failing
to handle AST_CONTROL_UPDATE_RTP_PEER frames in the local bridge loop
causes the loop to exit prematurely. This causes a variety of negative side
effects, depending on when the loop exits. This patch handles the frame by
essentially swallowing the frame in the local loop, as the current channel
drivers expect the RTP bridge to handle the frame, and, in the case of the
local bridge loop, no additional action is necessary.
(closes issue ASTERISK-19095) Reported by: Stefan Schmidt Tested

* Fix timing source dependency issues with MOH. Prior to this patch,
res_musiconhold existed at the same module priority level as the timing
sources that it depends on. This would cause a problem when music on
hold was reloaded, as the timing source could be changed after
res_musiconhold was processed. This patch adds a new module priority
level, AST_MODPRI_TIMING, that the various timing modules are now loaded
at. This now occurs before loading other resource modules, such
that the timing source is guaranteed to be set prior to resolving
the timing source dependencies.

* Fix RTP reference leak. If a blind transfer were initiated using a
REFER without a prior reINVITE to place the call on hold, AND if Asterisk
were sending RTCP reports, then there was a reference leak for the
RTP instance of the transferrer.
(closes issue ASTERISK-19192) Reported by: Tyuta Vitali

* Fix blind transfers from failing if an ‘h’ extension
is present. This prevents the ‘h’ extension from being run on the
transferee channel when it is transferred via a native transfer
mechanism such as SIP REFER. (closes issue ASTERISK-19173) Reported

* Restore call progress code for analog ports. Extracting sig_analog
from chan_dahdi lost call progress detection functionality. Fix
analog ports from considering a call answered immediately after
dialing has completed if the callprogress option is enabled.
(closes issue ASTERISK-18841)

* Fix regression that ‘rtp/rtcp set debup ip’ only works when a port
was also specified.
