Welcome to the last Monday of September 2012!

We've had quite the interesting week. Perhaps the most interesting item the
team dealt with was a vulnerability in the Sofia SIP stack that would cause
a segmentation fault while processing a specially crafted SIP message. Just
to show you how nimble the FreeSWITCH developers are, from the time the
vulnerability was reported it took less than a day to fix, test, and roll a
new version of FreeSWITCH. We encourage everyone on 1.2 to get updated
to version
1.2.3 <http://files.freeswitch.org/freeswitch-1.2.3.tar.bz2> as soon as
possible. (The fix is also in the 1.3 development branch as of last
Wednesday, September 19.) We tip our hats to Anthony and the rest of the dev
their hard work on our behalf.

Last week's conference
call<http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/FS_weekly_2012_09_19>was also
very informative. We received an introduction to the repro
SIP proxy <http://resiprocate.org/About_Repro> software. We look
forward to this
coming Wednesday
<http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/FS_weekly_2012_09_26>where Scott
Godin and Daniel Pocock will continue the discussion and will
get deeper into how to set up the proxy and use it with FreeSWITCH. If you
haven't already tried to install repro please do so. Daniel has a nice
at OpenTelecoms.org - be sure to check it out and bring your questions
on Wednesday.

Finally, we'd like to draw your attention to this blog
long time FreeSWITCH and open source telephony supporter Kristian
Kielhofner. Kristian reports that his company, Star2Star
is sponsoring the FreeSWITCH stable branch by giving direct financial
support to the project. This allows for a full-time team member to work on
things like the stable branch and packaging as well as community
interaction and documentation. We appreciate those who support FreeSWITCH
and open source telephony!

Have a good week and we'll see you again in October.
