I’ve been finding that hinting is highly unreliable under 1.4.11. I just recently decided to try using 1.4, because a coworker’s been using it for a while now, and I’ve had a number of people on Freenode telling me it was quite stable. However, what I’ve found is that the BLF (the main reason I made the leap) is even more unstable than the BLF in 1.2.
I haven’t had a problem with BLF in recent (last two months) history with 1.2. However, the first time I tried BLF in 1.4, it was not working reliably.
- SIP phone is busy, but show hints still shows it as being idle; I’m guessing this problem has to be an Asterisk bug
- Zap hints not showing as being watched until about eight hours after I program the BLF keys into an Aastra 57i and reboot
- Parked call hints not showing up as being watched ever after I program the BLF keys into an Aastra 57i and reboot
I have a bug report for this at bugs.digium.com/view.php?id=10818
On a side note, I can’t seem to get any messages posted to the asterisk-users mailing list. I’ve checked the archives as well, just in case I wasn’t getting them echoed back, but they’re not there, either.
I will be posting sip debug and syslog logs to the bug report probably tomorrow.
Thanks for any help you might be able to offer.
