Hi,

GNU Gatekeeper 4.4 was released today. This is mainly a bug fix release
with only 2 new features.

If you use SSH on your status port you are urged to update as soon as
possible and also if you use LUA scripting. Two serious bugs have been
fixed for these features where GnuGk can be crashed remotely.

A new feature is the RequireOneNet policy that allows you to restrict
access to publicly accessible traversal gatekeepers. Now you can easily
define that one end of all calls must terminate in one of your own
networks and prevent abuse of your resources by 3rd parties.

The other new feature is a significant improvement to the MakeCall
command on the status port. It is now able to establish video calls and
supports virtually all endpoints by using GnuGk's call reroute feature.

Changed config switches:
- [Proxy] ProxyForNAT now defaults to OFF
- [CTI::MakeCall] DisableFastStart has been removed, fastStart is
  now always disabled

You can download the new version from
http://www.gnugk.org/h323download.html

Please see the full change log below.

These know bugs haven't been addressed, yet:
- when GnuGk acts as a H.460.18 client (as client in a H.460.18
  traversal zone with another gatekeeper or as child gatekeeper), it
  currently does not send a keep-alive on the Q.931 TCP connection
  during a call
- bandwidth management currently only applies to calls from registered
  endpoints and ignores unregistered calls completely


Changes from 4.3 to 4.4

- [CTI::MakeCall] TransferMethod can now also be Reroute, DisableFastStart switch removed
