Changes to manager version 1.1:


- Response: headers are now either
	"Success"	- Action OK, this message contains response
	"Error"		- Action failed, reason in Message: header
	"Follows"	- Action OK, response follows in following Events.

- Manager version changed to 1.1

- The Hold/Unhold events
	- Both are now "Hold" events
		For hold, there's a "Status: On" header, for unhold, status is off
	- Modules chan_sip/chan_iax2

- The Ping Action
	- Now use Response: success
	- New header "Ping: pong" :-)

- The Events action
	- Now use Response: Success
	- The new status is reported as "Events: On" or "Events: Off"

- The JabberSend action
	- The Response: header is now the first header in the response
	- now sends "Response: Error" instead of "Failure"

- Newstate and Newchannel events
	- these have changed headers
	"State"		-> ChannelStateDesc	Text based channel state
			-> ChannelState		Numeric channel state
	- The events does not send "<unknown>" for unknown caller IDs just an empty field

- Newchannel event
	- Now includes "AccountCode"

- Newstate event
	- Now has "CalleridNum" for numeric caller id, like Newchannel
	- The event does not send "<unknown>" for unknown caller IDs just an empty field

- Newexten and VarSet events
	- Now are part of the new Dialplan privilege class, instead of the Call class

- Dial event
	- Event Dial has new headers, to comply with other events
	- Source	-> Channel		Channel name (caller)
	- SrcUniqueID	-> UniqueID		Uniqueid
	(new)		-> Dialstring		Dialstring in app data

- Link and Unlink events
	- The "Link" and "Unlink" bridge events in channel.c are now renamed to "Bridge"
	- The link state is in the bridgestate: header as "Link" or "Unlink"
	- For channel.c bridges, "Bridgetype: core" is added. This opens up for
	  bridge events in rtp.c 
	- The RTP channel also reports Bridge: events with bridgetypes
		- rtp-native	RTP native bridge
		- rtp-direct	RTP peer-2-peer bridge (NAT support only)
		- rtp-remote	Remote (re-invite) bridge. (Not reported yet)

- The "Rename" manager event has a renamed header, to use the same
	terminology for the current channel as other events
	- Oldname	-> Channel		

- The "NewCallerID" manager event has a renamed header
	- CallerID	-> CallerIDnum
	- The event does not send "<unknown>" for unknown caller IDs just an empty field
- Reload event
	- The "Reload" event sent at manager reload now has a new header and is now implemented
  	in more modules than manager to alert a reload. For channels, there's a CHANNELRELOAD 
  	event to use.
	(new)		-> Module: manager | CDR | DNSmgr | RTP | ENUM
	(new)		-> Status: enabled | disabled
	- To support reload events from other modules too
		- cdr module added

- Status action replies (Event: Status)
	Header changes
	- link		-> BridgedChannel
	- Account	-> AccountCode
	- (new)		-> BridgedUniqueid

	New header
	- (new)		-> Items		Number of channels reported

- The Registry and Peerstatus events in chan_sip and chan_iax now use "ChannelType" instead of "ChannelDriver"

- The Response to Action: IAXpeers now have a Response: Success header

- The MeetmeJoin now has caller ID name and Caller ID number fields (like MeetMeLeave)

- Action DAHDIShowChannels
	Header changes
	- Channel:	-> DAHDIChannel
	For active channels, the Channel: and Uniqueid: headers are added
	You can now add a "DAHDIChannel: " argument to DAHDIshowchannels actions
	to only get information about one channel.

- Event DAHDIShowChannelsComplete
	New header
	- (new)		-> Items: 	Reports number of channels reported

- Action VoicemailUsersList
	Added new headers for SayEnvelope, SayCID, AttachMessage, CanReview
        and CallOperator voicemail configuration settings.

- Action Originate
	Now requires the new Originate privilege.
	If you call out to a subshell in Originate with the Application parameter,
		you now also need the System privilege.

- Action: ModuleLoad
	Modules: loader.c
		To be able to unload, reload and unload modules from AMI.
	  ActionID: <id>          Action ID for this transaction. Will be returned.
  	  Module: <name>          Asterisk module name (including .so extension)
				  or subsystem identifier:
				cdr, enum, dnsmgr, extconfig, manager, rtp, http
          LoadType: load | unload | reload
                          The operation to be done on module
	If no module is specified for a reload loadtype, all modules are reloaded

- Action: ModuleCheck
	Modules: loader.c
		To check version of a module - if it's loaded
	  ActionID: <id>          Action ID for this transaction. Will be returned.
  	  Module: <name>          Asterisk module name (not including extension)
		If module is loaded, returns version number of the module
		Note: This will have to change. I don't like sending Response: failure
		on both command not found (trying this command in earlier versions of
		Asterisk) and module not found.
		Also, check if other manager actions behave that way.

- Action: QueueSummary
	Modules: app_queue
		To request that the manager send a QueueSummary event (see the NEW EVENTS
	    section for more details).
	  ActionID: <id>		Action ID for this transaction. Will be returned.
	  Queue: <name>			Queue for which the summary is desired

- Action: QueuePenalty
	Modules: app_queue
		To change the penalty of a queue member from AMI
	  Interface: <tech/name>	The interface of the member whose penalty you wish to change
	  Penalty:  <number>		The new penalty for the member. Must be nonnegative.
	  Queue:  <name>			If specified, only set the penalty for the member for this queue;
	  								Otherwise, set the penalty for the member in all queues to which
									he belongs.

- Action: QueueRule
	Modules: app_queue
		To list queue rules defined in queuerules.conf
	  Rule: <name>			The name of the rule whose contents you wish to list. If this variable
	  							is not present, all rules in queuerules.conf will be listed.


- Event: FullyBooted
	Modules: loader.c
		It is handy to have a single event notification for when all Asterisk
		modules have been loaded--especially for situations like running
		automated tests. This event will fire 1) immediately upon all modules
		loading or 2) upon connection to the AMI interface if the modules have
		already finished loading before the connection was made. This ensures
		that a user will never miss getting a FullyBooted event. In vary rare
		circumstances, it might be possible to get two copies of the message
		if the AMI connection is made right as the modules finish loading.
		Event: FullyBooted
		Privilege: system,all
		Status: Fully Booted

- Event: Transfer
	Modules: res_features, chan_sip
		Inform about call transfer, linking transferer with transfer target
		You should be able to trace the call flow with this missing piece
		of information. If it works out well, the "Transfer" event should
		be followed by a "Bridge" event
		The transfermethod: header informs if this is a pbx core transfer
		or something done on channel driver level. For SIP, check the example:
		Event: Transfer
		Privilege: call,all
		TransferMethod: SIP
		TransferType: Blind
		Channel: SIP/device1-01849800
		SIP-Callid: 091386f505842c87016c4d93195ec67d@
		TargetChannel: SIP/device2-01841200
		TransferExten: 100
		TransferContext: default

- Event: ChannelUpdate
	Modules: chan_sip.c, chan_iax2.c
		Updates channel information with ID of PVT in channel driver, to
		be able to link events on channel driver level.
		* Integrated in SVN trunk as of May 4th, 2007


		Event: ChannelUpdate
		Privilege: system,all
		Uniqueid: 1177271625.27
		Channel: SIP/olle-01843c00
		Channeltype: SIP
		SIPfullcontact: sip:olle@

	Purpose: To report core settings, like AMI and Asterisk version,
		maxcalls and maxload settings.
		* Integrated in SVN trunk as of May 4th, 2007
		Response: Success

- Action: CoreStatus
	Modules: manager.c
	Purpose: To report current PBX core status flags, like
		number of concurrent calls, startup and reload time.
		* Integrated in SVN trunk as of May 4th, 2007
		Response: Success
		ActionID: 1649760492

		AccountCode: Stinas account 1234848484
		OldAccountCode: OllesAccount 12345

- Event: ModuleLoadReport
	Modules: loader.c
	Purpose: To report that module loading is complete. Some aggressive
		clients connect very quickly to AMI and needs to know when
		all manager events embedded in modules are loaded
		Also, if this does not happen, something is seriously wrong.
		This could happen to chan_sip and other modules using DNS.
		Event: ModuleLoad
		ModuleLoadStatus: Done
		ModuleSelection: All
		ModuleCount: 24

- Event: QueueSummary
	Modules: app_queue
	Purpose: To report a summary of queue information. This event is generated by
		issuing a QueueSummary AMI action.

		Queue: Sales
		LoggedIn: 12
		Available: 5
		Callers: 10
		HoldTime: 47
	If an actionID was specified for the QueueSummary action, it will be appended as the
	last line of the QueueSummary event.
