Hello telepathy list!

I am very pleased to announce version 0.3.0 of the Telepathy snom phone
connection manager.

Telepathy snom

Telepathy snom is a Telepathy specification 
(http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/spec.html) compliant connection manager. It
enables remote controlling of VoIP phones as build by snom from Telepathy
compatible desktop applications.

Telepathy-snom enables computer telephone integration (CTI) in an opensource
environment. Using the Decibel realtime communication server this connection
manager can be used in applications to report on call state or to dial out
directly to users via a SIP network (eg. managed by an asterisk server).

Telepathy-snom is implemented using the Tapioca Qt language bindings


Development of this connection manager is sponsored by NLnet
(http://www.nlnet.com/) and basysKom GmbH (http://www.basyskom.de/) as part of
the Decibel project. It is used to test the applicability of the Telepathy
specification for computer telephone integration.

Thanks for the support you are giving to the project!

I further want to thank the Tapioca project
(http://tapioca-voip.sourceforge.net/) for providing the Qt bindings to
Telepathy I am using in this connection manager.


Telepathy-snom is released under the LGPL version 2.1.

Version 0.3.0

Version 0.3.0 is the initial public release.

It enables:
 * Connecting to a snom phone using any of the identities defined in the 
 * Monitoring of incoming calls
