    Its about time Elastix started looking into a fully integrated system;

    Dovecot - IMAP server so users can access emails outside of Elastix (http://www.dovecot.org/). Sinceerly, nobody needs to host email on a phone server due to the amount of system resources email servers consume, so having an email server in Elastix is totally unnecessary bloatware and needs to be removed. The same goes for CRM software. These are applications that need to be hosted outside of a phone system but tied together over IP for seamless access.

    Dojotoolkit - Open Source DHTML toolkit written in JavaScript. It builds on several contributed code bases (nWidgets, Burstlib, f(m)), which is why it sometimes referred to as a "unified" toolkit (http://dojotoolkit.org/).

    Jabberd2 - XMPP/Jabber server library so admin and users can seamless UI (http://jabberd2.xiaoka.com/) as opposed to Openfire within Elastix (this is not pretty anymore as there are advancements out there now).

    Quagga - a routing software suite, providing implementations of OSPFv2, OSPFv3, RIP v1 and v2, RIPng and BGP-4 (http://www.quagga.net/about.php).

    SLA - we all know too well what this is and need it soon.

    Webfax - We all know what this also is and need to see it soon. In my opinion, this will be better done by completely skinning the Avantfax backend code and embedding it behind an Elastix UI for seamlessness.

    Replace FreePBX UI with seamless Elastix UI.

    Opensource telephony software is getting more and more competitive so advancement is much needed to say the least.

    My understanding is that Asterisk 1.6 is in testing, bringing with it multi-site functions and TCP TLS support.

    When all of the wrinkles get ironed out, sounds like Elastix may have some big changes to take advantage of the new functionality.

    I somewhat disagree with the last post as relatively small offices can still take advantage of both the CRM and Mailserver. The ability to pick which modules are installed is essential.
