version with the biggest new features boost since project was started 
back in 2005.

Release 1.5.0 comes after a shorter development period than usual -

testing, but brings lot of new features and improvements, with special 
care to stability, performance, security and flexibility. A short 
summary of what the release brings out:

reduce SQL operations by storing results in cache
    * execute SQL queries against multiple databases and access the 
results in a fast and natural fashion
    * execute config file route blocks on timer
    * send SIP requests from config file
    * perform HTTP queries from config file - integration with web service
    * dialog info presence support - RFC4235
    * support for TLS server_name extension (aka SNI=server name indication)
    * support for non-blocking logging
    * many enhancements to least cost routing (LCR), load balancing 
(dispatcher) and carrier routing (carrierroute)
    * access in config file to both request or reply during transaction 
    * perl-like regular expression support (PCRE library)
    * sanity check of SIP message structure
    * protection against SIP reply attack
