Debian 7 is currently in the `freeze’ status with 1.8.13 – that means Debian 7 is very likely to release 1.8.13 and be carrying it for the next 2-3 years (typical lifetime of a Debian release)
I run 1.8.8. TLS has a bug: it fails to receive BYE over the TLS
connection from my Polycom phone.
I tried 1.8.13, the version in Debian 7, and found a more severe bug:
The TLS clients can’t connect at all, this looks like a really bad regression from 1.8.8
I’ve looked at 1.8.(14, 15, 16-rc1) and their changelogs don’t mention any fix.
Debian is very conservative about accepting updates during the `freeze’
process – they will most likely want to see a 126.96.36.199 release with ONLY
the most essential fixes
a) is anyone else aware of these bugs?
b) what essential changes should go into 188.8.131.52 for Debian?
