Thanks to several people that have poked us about the status of the Asterisk-IM plugin. Unfortunately, there always seems to be a million things to do and not enough time. The engineer here who worked on the plugin is now too busy to do additional maintenance work. So:
I’‘d like to make an official plea for development help from the Asterisk-IM user base. If you’'re familiar with Java and Asterisk and are willing to help, drop me an email.
I’'m going to send out some direct emails to a few engineers that might be able to help.
My gut feeling is that it’'s not going to be a ton of work to bring the current code base into a good working state, especially given all the recent improvements in the Asterisk-Java project (http://asterisk-java.org/). However, there are lots of cool new features that could be added if the plugin got regular development love.
I hope to have some good news to report soon.
