Kphone is a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) user agent for Linux, which allows Voice over IP (VoIP) connections over the Internet.

Kphone project supports Presence and Instant Messaging, and to some extent video calls between two hosts.

The KphoneSI is based on the KPhone.

The original KPhone was written by Billy Biggs, current version by Pekka Raisio, Jouni Vuorela and Juha Heinanen at Wirlab with suggestions and fixes from the KPhone community around the world.

The KphoneSI was written by Klaus Fleischmann based on the kphone with various contributions from others and is still in devellopment.

What's New in This Release:
I polished up the installation routines (Bug no. 1547721 plus other
(undocumented) errors)
new ring app: kphoneringsh, is allows you to use an app of your
choice for ringing, see the user manual for more.
The STUN timer now accepts other values than the default value; the
default is increased to 1200 sec.
The well known memory leaks are closed now (Bug no. 1532451)
partner's codecs, if supported by KPhone, are now recognized even if
the matching a=rtpmap line is missing in the SDP-description. (X-Lite
sends such nasty things).
Authentication got more protection from proxies running havoc.
signalling and media transport for UDP are always set to symmetric mode
bug #1564126,Call Hold is saved
ALSA will not block any longer, if more than one application tries to
access it. This is usefull for tests, but do not expect sound!
Project 64Bit: KPhone SI except SPEEX is made compilable on 64-bit
compilers (be carefully, there still are runtime errors).
