I'm happy to announce the first release of Shtoom. Shtoom is a Python implementation of a voice over IP software phone, using the standard SIP protocol. The first release features:
- basic calling functionality (can make and receive calls), - Qt, Gtk, Tkinter and text user interfaces (of varying degrees of functionality), - audio support for Linux/FreeBSD (using ossaudiodev) and Windows/MacOS X (using PortAudio), - audio codecs G711 (64kbit/s) and GSM 06.10 audio (3kbit/s) with an optional extension, - firewall traversal via STUN.
It's been tested against Cisco IOS 12.3, Asterisk, kphone and linphone.
It's available from the website: http://shtoom.sf.net/
Future plans include: - error handling <wink> - SIP registration support - A number of other applications, including shtam (answering machine) and shtoomcu (conferencing server).
