Release 0.3.0 and documentation
This new release of the prototype implements the following drafts:
- draft-ietf-mediactrl-sip-control-framework-05.txt (Framework)
- draft-boulton-mmusic-sdp-control-package-attribute-03.txt (ctrl-package SDP attribute)
- draft-ietf-mediactrl-ivr-control-package-01.txt (IVR)
- draft-ietf-mediactrl-mixer-control-package-01.txt (Mixer)
That is, the core framework and an almost complete implementation of two control packages. The release also comes with a couple of additional control package placeholders, mostly designed for testing purposes. Only audio is supported in this available release, specifically A-law, mu-law and GSM, but more codecs can be easily added given the plugin-oriented nature of the prototype.
Checkout the Doxygen-generated documentation for more details upon the implementation itself.
The prototype is available for download here:
Besides, two different Application Server demos are provided to test the prototype:
- mediactrl-as-testapp-0.3.0.tar.gz, a very simple, interactive (ncurses), Application Server stub to test the MS functionality;
- mediactrl-as-fullaudioapp-0.3.0.tar.gz, a complete, ready to use, SIP application (AS) using the MS for audio;
Give it a try! Any kind of feedback will be more than welcome. Don't forget to also checkout the documentation page for up-to-date drafts (including our latest call flows document) and meeting presentations (72nd IETF stuff availabe now).
Some questions you may ask yourself...
- "Why 0.3.0? what happened to 0.2.0??"
The same thing that happened to Leisure Suit Larry 4 ;)
- "Why audio only? I want video too!"
The release available for download only supports audio: considering the aim of the prototype is to provide a testbed for a new framework and protocol, audio is more than enough to experiment with the functionality envisaged by the specifications. Anyway, we also have a version of the prototype supporting video as well: we're currently preparing an online demo application for you to try with a SIP video phone, which will also show all the MEDIACTRL-related interactions, so come again soon for news about that!
