So, I’m experiementing with Asterisk 1.2 RC2.
Seems that you STILL have to completely stop and restart asterisk for changes made to extensions.ael to become applied.
It also seems that #include doesn’t work.
Call me crazy, but I would have thought that these where two features that would have been show stoppers for the final 1.2 release. They certainly are show stoppers for us, as I imagine they would be for anyone in a production environment.
