AstLinux 1.0.0 release

The AstLinux Team is happy to announce the release of AstLinux 1.0.0. This release includes significant changes and improvements over past releases. Specific upgrade and new installation instructions are available at: http://www.astlinux.org

Some of the highlights include:

* Using eglibc instead of uClibc. This allows binary compatibility with add-ons that are provided as binary only (G.729 CODEC, Fax for Asterisk etc).
* Newer Kernel which better supports newer hardware
* Support for Jabber/Gtalk
* Removed mISDN support (the zaphfc DAHDI driver is included for single port ISDN cards)

A full changelog is available on the release pages. We provide versions with Asterisk 1.8 and 1.4.

Because this is a major version change, there are some special considerations when upgrading. Please read the instructions very carefully to ensure no step is skipped.


Please report any issues with the release back to the AstLinux mailing list.
