A new year has arrived, so it is the time for a new OpenSIPS major 
release – forOpenSIPS version 2.3 .

For this version, the main focus on development is the*/“integration”/*, 
the integration ofOpenSIPSwith various external entities. Why is 
integration so important to end up being the main tag of a major 
release? Well, everybody in the VoIP world is operating VoIP 
platforms/systems – and these are more than SIP Engines (asOpenSIPSis). 
Indeed, the SIP Engine is the core and most important part of the 
platform, but to build something usable and useful, you need additional 
components into your platform like CDR/billing engines, monitoring and 
tracing tools, data backends, non-SIP trunking or more specialized SIP 
engines. Shortly you need your SIP Engine (OpenSIPS, of course) to be 
able to easily integrate with all these components.

OpenSIPS2.3  brings some new and exciting integration capabilities, that 
will definitely boost the value of your SIP platform:

  * extendedHomer/SIPCapture <http://sipcapture.org/>integration to
    allow capturing of non-SIP data (transport level data, Management
    Interface commands, REST queries and more);
  * SIP-I support both in terms of passing-through and in terms of
    converting SIP-I to SIP and vice-versa ;
  * CGRates <http://cgrates.org/>integration for powerful rating/billing
    – everything in a simple and automatic way (via a dedicated module);
  * FreeSWITCH <https://freeswitch.org/> flavored Load-Balancing for a
    more realistic and accurate traffic balancing over FreeSWITCH
    clusters (as the load information is fetched in realtime from
  * theEvent Engine
    <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Event-driven_programming>to provide
    support for scenarios based on Subscribe/Notify model, where the
    script execution may subscribe and resume later according to
    certain events (like a dynamic implementation of the Push
    Notification mechanism);
  * extendedRabbitMQ <https://www.rabbitmq.com/> support for custom and
    flexible data injection directly from OpenSIPS script;
  * extended Asynchronous support for more complex async scenarios (like
    launch with no wait);
  * more end-device integration (special SIP extensions).

The timeline for OpenSIPS 2.3 is:

  * Beta Release – 13-17 March 2017
  * Stable Release – 24-28 April 2017
  * General Availability – 2nd of May 2017, duringOpenSIPS Summit
