From a voice quality perspective, 1.4 is a lot better than 1.2, BUT…
I’m starting to wonder if the developers are starting to get a god complex!
For a start, I find it extreamly frustating that dial plans that work fine in 1.2 are broken in 1.4 (what ever happened to backwards compatibility?)
Now I can understand new functions with a different syntax, but old functions should still work!
Second, what’s with this ‘core’ prefix to most cli commands?
Why on earth do I need to remember new command syntax’s that do exactly the same as the old ones?
I love Cisco’s policy of short cutting commands provided they’re not ambiguous, such as sho run. Why can’t this be done in asterisk such as sip sho p ? (sip show peers)
My concern is that asterisk is trying to become everything to everyone, and as a result becoming bloat-ware!
And what’s this of putting 1.2 into the ‘old releases’ dir when it’s still active?
Yes Asterisk has been a great success story, but it can equally disappear pretty quickly too. Annoy the end users too much and it’s end of story.
