We’re delighted to introduce the bells and whistles for Incredible PBX® 13-13. We’ve taken a slightly different approach with this release.

This gets you a fully-functioning PBX with the latest Asterisk® 13 and most of the FreePBX® 13 GPL modules.

It’s been a death by a thousand cuts, but today marks the end of the Google Voice era with Asterisk®. Since Google removed XMPP support and transitioned to their new GVSIP platform, many have held out hope that Google hadn’t moved to a purely commercial platform with their ObiHai deal.

We hinted this was coming back in July and… Read More ›

It’s been a couple weeks since we introduced Incredible PBX® 16-15, the first aggregation featuring Asterisk® 16 LTS and the alpha release of FreePBX® 15. Today we’re pleased to offer the second major upgrade featuring a new GVSIP patch for Asterisk 16 and more than a dozen new GPL module updates for the FreePBX 15 platform. As noted previously, we normally take shelter when we hear the word "alpha" but FreePBX 15 is actually pretty stable. Don’t plan on using… Read More ›
