Public Change Log

Our Projects

PhreakNet has been responsible for finding bugs, suggesting feature improvements, and adding features to some open source projects, mostly to Asterisk. (In fact, we were one of the top contributors to Asterisk in 2021.) Below is a list of some of these bug fixes and features.


Feature development is generally driven by user and organizational needs. We are open to developing features or fixing bugs for you, preferably in exchange for a small feature/bug bounty donation to keep our work going, since this work is largely volunteer-driven. To request a patch, submit a new ticket on InterLinked Issues (use "Asterisk" as the category). If you are offering a bounty, include that in the body of the issue. All patches and modules are submitted to Sangoma for consideration for inclusion in the Asterisk source so that everyone can benefit from our work. We will not develop or work on any non-public code. All patches are eventually included in PhreakScript for installing PhreakNet-Asterisk.

PhreakNet Contributions to Asterisk

This table includes only changes which have been contributed to Asterisk and have been incorporated or are under consideration. It does not include PhreakNet-specific changes (mostly new modules) that have not been contributed to the project, but are included with PhreakScript.

Bugs We Have Reported That Have Not Yet Been Fixed

  1. Somewhat bizarre issues with MixMonitor() - autofallthrough error and inaudible tone with the B() option — reported April 2021
  2. DTMF on progress results in infinite loop if progress followed by hangup received — reported May 2021 — we have written a small patch that prevents a channel from hanging from this specifically, but it's really a workaround to prevent the hanging (effect) and doesn't fix the actual cause. As such, this patch is not being accepted by Sangoma.
  3. Improper same-provider multi-registration parsing in SIP to PJSIP conversion script — June 2021
  4. Deadlocks and long queue lengths with ConfBridge() and Record() — June 2021
  5. app_senddtmf: Does not work without answer supervision
  6. bridge: IAX2 call where side A splits call on answer and side B sends DTMF on answer to called party on DAHDI line can cause bidirectional audio to drop permanently due to AST_CONTROL_SRCCHANGE
  7. codecs: clicking is introduced onto channels
  8. Fixed jitterbuffer doesn't work with IAX2 channels
  9. FilterList AMI action doesn't exist
  10. ConfBridge unable to build translation path
  11. testsuite: timeout can't be overridden to higher values
  12. app_dial: Progress causes hangup cause to disappear
  13. pbx_variables: ast_str_substitute_variables does not obey substrings
  14. Deadlocks when calling SLAStation application
  15. channels: Erroneous autoservice of channel
  16. pjsip: assertions and warnings with WebRTC
  17. res_parking: Dynamic creation of large parking lot deadlocks dialplan
