New Feature
GR-909 coefficients have been replaced
Improvement
Level value 0 dB is now allowed in IFX_TAPI_TONE_CFG_SET
Improvement
CID tx and rx were using hardcoded levels, now levels can be configured in steps of 0.5 dB in a Change
range from -96 to 0 dB defaults are changed to -14 dB for CID tx and -15 dB for CID rx.
Call Progress Tone Detection (CPTD) did not work properly for non continuous tones
Bug Fix
NTT CID was using wrong seizure and mark defaults, DLE escaping did not consider the overall Bug Fix
length field of the buffer

Changes
Changes between Release 1.1.17 and 1.1.15 (cont’d)
Change
Change Type
CID Transmission for type 2 CIDs was using the configured seizure bits for CID type 1, for type 2 Bug Fix
CIDs the number of seizure bits is always 0
CID Receiver did not use the configured mark and seizure settings and therefore failed for certain Bug Fix
standards as NTT for example
PCM activation was only working for channel zero, other channel overwrote channel zero
Bug Fix
IFXPHONE_GET_VERSION, version string was not copied to user properly for Linux
Bug Fix
DispatchCmd could have overwritten internally cached values
Bug Fix

Changes between Release 1.1.15 and 1.1.12
Change
Change Type
Configuration of hook validation times
New Feature
PCM activation status (IFX_TAPI_PCM_ACTIVATION_GET) is now returned via the pbAct
parameter, the return value just indicates SUCCESS or ERROR
Improvement
DTMF detection level is set to -30 dB
Change
Capability check returned always 0 even if cap was supported for Linux
Bug Fix
Tone stopping with index 0 could caused a crash in Linux
Bug Fix
GR-909 ringer impedance test (fix in lib_tapi)
Bug Fix
Attention: tones generated by the DSP were played out with a gain of -10 dB, the gain has been Bug Fix
corrected to 0 dB

Table 6
Open issues of the VINETIC Alpha System Package
Description of Issues
Status
The pause time of simple tones in a composed tone must be Open
unequal to zero, otherwise only the first simple tone is played
out.
Documentation needs to be extended to clarify that with 30 ms Open
or longer packetization time it might happen that the device
driver cannot store the packet into the chip’s mailbox (return
0). In this case the application has to resend the packet. In the
meantime the firmware will move the packet out of the mailbox
(every second 8 kHz clock).
PCM channels 4 to 7 are not accessible.
Open
GPIO release effects other GPIOs and sets callbacks to NULL. Open
CID NTT standard: timing for Ringalert + Ring Pause needs to Open
be configurable independently.
