Documentation? Am I missing something?

I downloaded version 1.4 of the s/w and unpacked the /doc directory. I don’t even find anything which gives me an overview of the software.

Did I miss something?

What are other people doing for documentation? or are other people using other free products with superior docs?

the best soruce is the wiki

also very good is the book “Asterisk: The Future of Telephony” - available as a download and in most bookstores.

does this book cover asterisk 1.4?

It doesn’t. You will have to adapt.

Actually, the 2nd Edition does cover 1.4. Here’s a link to Amazon:
