Wazo Platform 20.08 Released

8 June 2020

Hello Wazo Platform community!

Here is a short review of the Wazo Platform 20.08 release.

New features in this release

  • Calls: Wazo Platform is now able to emulate the pressing of DTMF keys via a REST API call. This makes remote-controlling a physical phone more transparent.
  • Presences: In Wazo 20.08, the presence status of users takes into account the multiple channels for the same line to determine its state.
  • Directories: In Wazo 20.08, reverse lookup will search through conference numbers. While not very useful when an incoming call arrives, it allows interrogating the system to know "what was that number I talked to the other day?".
  • Provisioning: We have improved the documentation about physical devices that are supported by Wazo Platform. You can see the new version here: https://wazo-platform.org/uc-doc/ecosystem/supported_devices. This list is auto-generated, which makes it easier to maintain over time and to keep in sync with what the provisioning plugins can do. Let us know what you think!

Technical features

  • Asterisk: Asterisk was upgraded to 17.4.0.

Ongoing features

  • Performance: We will continue removing the use of encryption of internal communication between some Wazo components
  • Directories: We are adding a GraphQL API in wazo-dird to reduce the number of requests and improve performance.
  • SIP lines and trunks: We are currently rewriting the SIP configuration API to match PJSIP options and be multi-tenant

For more details about the aforementioned topics, please see the roadmap linked below.

See you at the next sprint review!
