GNU Gatekeeper 5.3

Post by willamowius »

GNU Gatekeeper 5.3 is out!

You can download it from

This release has a number of new features as well as some important bug

Whats new ?
  • LRQ loop detection to optimize calls flows between multiple
    neighbor gatekeepers
    This new feature has the potential to significantly reduce the load
    on all gatekeepers and prevent "LRQ storms".
  • new routing policy to set call destinations by querying HTTP
    or REST servers, see [Routing::Http]
  • much improved support for SNMP
  • important bug fix for TLS encryption of signaling channels
  • important bug fixes for H.460.18 (for H.245 tunneling and for
    multi-homed servers)
  • performance optimization: this version can handle 5-10% more proxied
    calls on the same hardware
  • performance optimization: re-authenticate lightweight, additive
    registrations only when new aliases differ
    This significantly reduces the load on password databases.
