The Asterisk Development Team has announced the releases of:

DAHDI-Linux-v2.8.0-rc2
DAHDI-Tools-v2.8.0-rc2
dahdi-linux-complete-2.8.0-rc2+2.8.0-rc2

This release is available for immediate download at:

In version 2.8 we have introduced two new drivers:
wcte43x – For Digium’s new line of 2/4 span T1/E1 cards wcaxx – For Digium’s new line of analog fxs/fxo cards

We introduced a common library called “wcxb” which ties the previous two drivers, plus the recently introduced wcte13xp driver, together into one common base.

dahdi-linux-complete tarballs now include all firmware necessary to build without an internet connection.

Shortlog of changes since v2.7.0.1:

    Downloaded and installed but it won’t load the HPEC license. Back to 2.0.7.1 and all is well again.

  • Hi Ira,

    Is there any more information you can tell me about this? What is the output when you run dahdihpec_enable?

    For example, on my system with 2.8.0-rc4 installed:

    # modprobe dahdi
    # modinfo -F version dahdi
    2.8.0-rc4
    # dahdihpec_enable
    Digium High-Performance Echo Canceller Enabler

    Thanks, Shaun
