More about the new release according to Asterisk.org:
The Asterisk development team has released Asterisk versions 1.2.24 and 1.4.10.
Version 1.2.24 is the final 1.2 release that contains normal bug fixes. The 1.2 branch will only be maintained with security fix releases from now until it is completely deprecated.
Version 1.4.10 contains numerous bug fixes for things all over Asterisk, as well as a fix for a security issue. The security issue only affects users of chan_skinny and is documented in ASA-2007-019.
Another set of noteworthy changes in version 1.4.10 include many fixes for the IAX2 channel driver. Special recognition goes out to the developers over at Wimba (http://www.wimba.com/) for their dedication to tracking down numerous complicated issues in the 1.4 version of chan_iax2. Thank you very much Mihai, Steve, and Pete!
