Matthew Fredrickson has posted details on which version of libpri to use with Asterisk 1.6:
Public Service Announcement :-)
Just to make it clear to everyone who may be confused by the recent libpri activity (removal of the 1.6.0-beta tarball and links, among other things), a mistake was made when the libpri-1.6.0-beta tarball was created.
We are not planning on releasing a 1.6 version of libpri, but instead you need to use the recently released version 1.4.4 of libpri with Asterisk 1.6. There were not big enough changes for Asterisk 1.6 to require a major ABI change release of libpri, so instead most of the 1.6 specific functions were back ported to the 1.4 branch of libpri (including BRI support, as well as a few other things such as TBCT for Q.SIG)
For Zaptel, you still only need a 1.4 release.
Hope that clears the air a bit for anyone out there who were not aware of what was going on.
