The Asterisk Development Team has announced the releases of:

– Introduces support for Digium’s new TE131 and TE132 products.
– Updates firmware for existing TE133 and TE134 products.
– New documentation and support tool improvements for configurable span/channel numbering
– Currently, span/channel ordering is determined by module load order
– Work arounds are used to specify channel assignment order by blacklisting all modules
and then loading them in a specific order to preserve channel assignments.
– We have been driving towards moving span/chan assignments out of kernel space and into user space.
– This is a much more robust solution which allows for:
– hotplugging, surprise device removal and installation while maintaining channel ordering
– parallel module loading (much faster booting on dense systems)
– discrete control over span and channel ordering via configuration files
– “sticky” channel assignments which can be tied to specific hardware ids or pci slots
– This new system is enabled by setting the module parameter of dahdi auto_assign_spans=0
