Aculab is pleased to announce the release of updated telephony software components, for Linux distributions, following successful QA testing. We strongly advise you to update to these new versions.

Please note that we have also introduced a 64-bit version of the AIT and we advise the use of this new version for these 64-bit 6.7 packages.
