A2Billing 1.8.1 is now stable and we invite you to download and install it to see all the new features which we hope in turn provide real benefits resulting in greater margins and profitability for all our customers and community.
A2Billing 1.8.1 includes the usual round of bug fixes, as well as some new call-back features sponsored by our customers, one being the way we answer the call to make A2Billing more compatible with Mobile Phone Call-Back Dialler software, and another feature called IVR call-back, where the customer is prompted for the number to call first, then the system calls them back and connects them. This feature was designed to circumvent tone clamping which some operators use to prevent call-back services from working.
Additionally, A2Billing has been updated to support PHP 5.3, one of the reasons for this is that Star2Billing are adopting Ubuntu LTS 10.0.4 Server edition as the base operating system for our commercial installs. Initial tests on this new operating system have been very pleasing.
