Finally, FreeSWITCH 1.8.7 is available in an easy way for non-Debian users (aka CentOS). Today, I have published in OKay's RPM repository RPMs for FreeSWITCH 1.8.6. FreeSWITCH is a complete VoIP switch that works on many platforms, including CentOS 6 and CentOS 7. This is one of the biggest packages I have ever done; there are more than 1800 hours of work behind to make it work (mainly because of the CentOS 6 support). When updating, you will notice it will download many libraries, most part of them not available anywhere.

The big difference in my RPM's is there are more sub-packages, for example, you can install only freeswitch-cli if you only need fs_cli command; CentOS 6 RPMS for 32 and 64 bits are available with video support; I have imported a patch that fixes mod_nibblebill, in some situations leg b won't hang up and it will produce money losses. I have been updating some other dependencies such as VLC, OpenH264 and MPG123 with latest stable if you were using my RPM's you will notice more updates as well.V8 module (javascript) is available in CentOS 7. Since the RPM of the 1.6.15 release, I have published the sounds for en-ca-june, the Canadian English language. If you live in Canada and you have done English exams such as CELPIP, you will notice those little differences.

In addition, these RPM's have a patch that allows the console to filter by a regular expression. If you do VoIP debugging, you will understand right away what I am talking about.

Because libyuv is now part of the core, these RPMs are compiled with video support. Yes, you read it well, both Centos 6 and 7 with video support. I also had some problems trying to port back LLVM 5 to CentOS 6 which it is needed to compile v8 (JavaScript Engine). Because of this, CentOS 6 RPM's do not provide JavaScript support (aka mod_v8).

Since this release, my RPM is going to be linked against tcmalloc. Release 1.8.7 focuses its bugfixes on the conference module, if you are a heavy conference user then you may be interested in updating your server.

In order to become a resident in Canada, you must show your English skills are enough. Canada government documents it in a very clear way. It states what tests and the minimum grade you must have. For English, only two exams are valid: CELPIP and IELTS. I will tell you my experience and based on that you can get a better idea. I don't consider myself very good at English, I felt more comfortable with CELPIP.
