Asterisk Modules 1.3.0 Released


A new package of Asterisk UniMRCP Modules 1.3.0 has been released and can be downloaded from the following location:

http://www.unimrcp.org/project/release-view/asterisk-modules-1-3-0

Please note that the released source package is no longer shipped with any specific version of Asterisk or UniMRCP, but provides bare modules compatible with a large variety of versions you may choose from, in particular:

  • Asterisk 1.6, 1.8, 10, 11, 12, and 13
  • UniMRCP r1988 and above (> 1.1.0)

This is an initial release which provides RPMs available to UniMRCP members. As opposed to source distribution, though, binary packages have to be built against specific versions of underlying components. Thus, RHEL/CentOS 6 RPMs built for Asterisk 11.16.0 are currently available and can be conveniently installed using yum. Please note that a complicated chain of dependencies is getting properly tracked and installed by issuing a simple yum command:

yum install asterisk-11.16.0-app-unimrcp-1.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

and/or

yum install asterisk-11.16.0-res-speech-unimrcp-1.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

Become a member, ask for support of a particular version of Asterisk/OS you are interested in, and get the RPMs at no additional charge. Furthermore, the members are entitled to request publishing up to four UniMRCP releases per year.

In brief, this release completes support for Asterisk 12 and 13 and also fixes compilation against Asterisk 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 branches. The applications SynthAndRecog() and MRCPRecog() are now capable of playing multiple/mixed prompts. The input timers can now be fully customized.

The detailed list of changes introduced in this release follows.

1. Generic Speech Recognition API (res_speech_unimrcp.so)

  • Adapted to the change in UniMRCP dir_layout interface.
  • Made res_speech_unimrcp compatible with Asterisk 12.
  • Added support for Asterisk 13.
2. Dialplan Applications (app_unimrcp.so)
2.1. MRCPSynth()
  • Fixed a Coverity issue: a variable was declared and assigned to itself because of a typo.
2.2. MRCPRecog()
  • Reincarnated the old or added a new option 'sit', which allows to specify a policy for the use of input timers.
  • Set channel status to INTERRUPTED when user hangs up on a none-bargeinable prompt. Thanks Tony.

2.4. Framework
  • Fixed a regression in loading of MRCPv1 profiles introduced since 1.2.0 release (issue-173).
  • Print out the associated Asterisk channel name while creating a new speech channel.
  • Retrieve and print out status and response code in case of an error in on_channel_add().
  • Took out unused handler on_channel_remove().
  • Fixed a potential race condition issue, where the applications could get stuck indefinitely in speech_channel_open() (r2168).
  • Fixed compilation against Asterisk 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 branches. Thanks Javier (issue-174).
  • Fixed a Coverity issue: dereference after NULL check.
  • Added support for Asterisk 13.
3. Miscellaneous
  • Use AM_CPPFLAGS instead of deprecated INCLUDES.
  • Fixed support for out of source build.
