>From Daniel-Constantin Mierla:
Kamailio SIP Server v5.3.9 stable release is out.
This is a maintenance release of the old stable branch, 5.3, that
includes fixes since the release of v5.3.8. There is no change to
database schema or configuration language structure that you have to do
on previous installations of v5.3.x. Deployments running previous v5.3.x
versions are strongly recommended to be upgraded to v5.3.9 or even
better to v5.4.x or 5.5.x series.
For more details about version 5.3.9 (including links and guidelines to
download the tarball or from GIT repository), visit:
RPM, Debian/Ubuntu packages will be available soon as well.
Note: the branch 5.3 is an old stable branch, v5.3.9 being the last
planned release out of it, to mark the end of official maintenance.
The maintained stable branches are now 5.4 and 5.5, at this time with
v5.5.3 being the latest stable release.
Many thanks to all contributing and using Kamailio!
>From @miconda (Daniel-Constantin Mierla):
it is time to mark the end of official packaging for 5.3.x releases,
therefore during the next days I am going to cut the v5.3.9 release from
branch 5.3, likely on Wednesday, Dec 8, 2021.
In other words, if no major regression is detected shortly after this
release, the v5.3.9 is going to be the last one from the 5.3 branch.
It is strongly recommended to move to a series that is under active
maintenance, respectively 5.5.x or 5.4.x.
_Thank you for flying Kamailio_
