Maintenance of Asterisk 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 will move to security fixes only in approximately one month. There are bug fix releases scheduled to be released during the first half of May for both versions. After those releases, Asterisk 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 will only receive security fixes.
The Asterisk development team recommends that all users of Asterisk 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 series move to the 1.6.2 series for continued bug fix support.
For more information on the maintenance schedule for Asterisk releases, please see the following page:
Note that the maintenance schedule for Asterisk 1.4 and 1.6.2 will likely be extended, pending the final determination of the release schedule for Asterisk 1.8.
Thank you for your continued support of Asterisk!
