OpenSER renamed to Kamailio one year ago, therefore the name is pretty obsolete now. Moreover, it is a lot to blog about SIP-Router.org project and other SIP/VoIP related things.
Update your bookmarks and rss feeds! See you at the new address:

Next SIP Router Bootcamp will take place at the end of the summer, on September 1-4, 2009 in Berlin, Germany.
Daniel-Constantin Mierla - co-founder of OpenSER/Kamailio project in 2005, currently core-developer and member of project’s management board
Olle Johansson - Asterisk developer and member of the Digium Asterisk Advisory Board.
By end of 2008, Kamailio (OpenSER) and SIP Express Router (SER) started a joint collaboration under http://sip-router.org project, bringing together valuable developers and architects of SIP servers. Kamailio 3.0 and SER 3.0 (to be released soon) become compatible in terms of configuration file and extensions.
Learning to configure the SIP server is not easy, but is the key for a successful and secure VoIP business. The flexibility of SIP routing engine allows you to implement in no time innovative services, IP telephony, Instant Messaging, Presence and beyond. Asterisk comes to complete with rich media services and applications. Doing everything designed right and scalable saves time and money.
We create the opportunity for you, guided by experienced instructors, to learn how to build an Unified Communication platform from scratch using the SIP server engine and Asterisk.

Several days ago, a new module named mi_rpc was added to the source tree. The goal is to be able to execute MI commands using RPC interface from sip router core.
One big advantage of this is executing MI commands using the sercmd tool. sercmd is a command line interface, able to do auto completion for commands, used to change parameters, get insights of core and modules at runtime.
If you grabbed the source code (some guidelines at: http://sip-router.org/wiki/migration/kamailio-3.0-config ), then:
At the prompt: “mi ps”
See the readme of the module for more options:

Two of the last three modules that were not ported to use the new sip router core are ready now: nat_traversal and siptrace.
Particularly, siptrace was refurbished a lot. Before release, there are couple of new features that should get in trunk since sip route core offers support for such extensions:
- ability to filter the ACK for negative replies issued by sl module in the script
- ability to store stateless forwarded messages (now only stateful ones being stored)
Testing is very much appreciated, see guidelines at Kamailio 3.0 Config wiki page.
