Hello Everyone,

As many of you are already aware, we are rapidly approaching the time when the Asterisk 11 branch will go into what is known as security fix only mode. Up to this point, bug fixes have been included and merged into the 11 branch. For Asterisk 11, this new phase of life shall begin October 25th of this year.

This means that from a development perspective, the Asterisk development team will not be putting effort into bug fixes for the 11
branch after the 25th of October. Security related patches will be merged for another year before completely putting the branch to rest. During the course of that year, releases will be made as needed and as security related patches are merged.

For any questions, you can either reply to this message or look at the Asterisk Versioning Policy wiki page [1] as it explains most of this process in greater detail.

Thanks so much again for all of your support and effort. Asterisk would not be what it is if it were not for all the great contributors that are and have been involved.
