Short for “Digium Asterisk Hardware Device Interface”

The Change

DAHDI is the new name for ‘Zaptel‘ as of May 19th 2008.
The post at http://blogs.digium.com/2008/05/19/zaptel-project-being-renamed-to-dahdi/ details the reason for the change. Asterisk 1.4 releases later than 1.4.21, and all releases of Asterisk 1.6, will automatically use DAHDI in preference to Zaptel, even if Zaptel is still installed on the system.

Details should be available at http://www.asterisk.org/zaptel-to-dahdi

Subversion Release

svn co http://svn.digium.com/svn/dahdi/linux/trunk dahdi-kernel

and

svn co http://svn.digium.com/svn/dahdi/tools/trunk dahdi-tools

Or a shortcut (if you just want to get it working, not if you want to work on it). It pulls the above two through svn:externals .
