Mpd-5.0 released

Mpd5 has got most of planned functionality, passed numerous tests and reached production ready state. Remarking this I am glad to present you a new mpd-5.0 release, the first release of the new epoch!

Comparing to 4.x, mpd5 presents significantly changed configuration and operation ideology, based on dynamic link/bundle creation. This gives such benefits as simplified configuration, completely functional multilink operation, call forwarding (LAC, PAC, TSA) and many others.

Mpd-4.4 released

Next version of the mpd4 stable branch released.

As most of development now mpd5 oriented, 4.4 is
mostly a bugfix release. It is recommended as
easy way to update existing mpd3/4 setups for
cases where mpd5 mirgation complicated due to
configuration changes.
For new setups mpd5 is recommended.
