"The trixbox community said they wanted a super-reliable Asterisk deployment that removed all the headaches and that is what we strived to deliver in this release of trixbox 2.0," said Andrew Gillis, founder of trixbox and director of community development at Fonality. "I always envisioned trixbox as a platform that would be both easy enough for people to quickly deploy and stable enough that they could stake their reputation on it. trixbox 2.0 is the realization of this vision."

trixbox 2.0 comes with a new point-and-click package manager which lets installers, via simple clicks of their mouse, decide which applications they want to install with trixbox. The advantage of the package manager is two-fold: first, it lets installers choose how lean or rich of a deployment they need. Secondly, it informs the installer, over time, of any new updates to any packages within their trixbox installation as vendors release them.

trixbox 2.0 includes a host of packages, or applications, including Apache, a modified version of Asterisk, FreePBX, Flash Operator Panel, MySQL, phpMyAdmin and SugarCRM. In addition, the new release provides call detail reports, an endpoint manager, VoIP service provider wizards, deeper application integration with SugarCRM, drivers for Sangoma and Rhino voice cards and support for multiple languages including English, German, Portuguese and Spanish with more to come.
