Hi all,

As previously stated, there is a common consent that the current 
design/architecture of OpenSIPS/OpenSER (inherited from SER) is no 
longer able to deliver and to meet the present requirements and demands 
for OpenSIPS future evolving. It is simply an inevitable dead-end that 
needs to be avoided.

Why? - I made a summary here - 

I guess all of you are aware of the critical problems like blocking DB 
or RADIUS, blocking DNS, lack of scaling, too complicated scripting, 
message changes processing , etc.

To be able to deliver a solution that will be able to satisfy the the 
growing complexity and scale of the SIP world, a new radical design is 
needed. It will be process of intensive thinking and work, but the 
result will be a license for the future.

As a first step of this laborious process, collecting feedback from all 
of you, about the is missing, what are your wishes, about the 
known/unknown limitations, etc I just open an new web section where we 
can compile all this information.

It is not a request for solution, but a request for current problems! We 
need to know all the problems that people facing in order to come up 
with a design that will solve them all.

Please visit:

and freely post there - any feedback is a valuable input and investment 
in this project.

Thanks you,
