FreePBX 15, available now in beta release and in GA (general availability) very shortly, features a new built-in API powered by GraphQL making it easier to integrate FreePBX with third-party applications, allowing users to create more efficient workflows and processes. The beta release also includes significant improvements to the Back-Up and Restore Process, helping to simplify how administrators can keep data safe.

The Asterisk 13 and 16 updates include feature, performance, and stability improvements, including the ability to switch between ARI applications from within ARI, without having to exit to dialplan. ARI is Asterisk’s REST interface used for programmatic call control and manipulation. This improvement continues to further the Asterisk project’s long term effort to be the best possible platform to choose for telephony application development.

“Sangoma continues to lead the entire communications industry with the two most widely used open source software products in the world,” said Bill Wignall, President and CEO of Sangoma. “Our unwavering support of the open source community by launching these important releases of both Asterisk and FreePBX shows the dedication of the entire Sangoma team to these projects, and gives our customers and partners the confidence that we are fully committed to these critical products, employed by millions of users around the globe.”

Asterisk 16 can be downloaded now from the Asterisk website and FreePBX 15 can be downloaded now from the FreePBX website. For more information, documentation and usage samples, as well as a complete list of new features, changes, and upgrade notes, visit the Asterisk wiki or the FreePBX wiki.
