Today, I merged a large set of changes to the IAX2 channel driver in Asterisk into the 1.4 branch and trunk. These changes address both stability and performance issues. Normally, changes such as performance enhancements are not merged into the release branch. However, they just happened to be a side benefit of the work which resolved ways that the module could crash Asterisk.
The issue was related to the handling of IAX2 peers and users in memory.
