In an effort to make certain features and fixes available sooner, pre-release firmware that has been tested, but is not quite ready for General Availability, is posted below with a short release note for users to download and manually update their OBi devices.

Current Pre-Release Firmware: OBi202 Release 3-0-1 (3585)

Release Note:
- Google Voice Multi-Ring: Use the same Google account on multiple OBi202 devices. Incoming calls to the associated Google Voice number will ring all OBi202 endpoints and the and the stand-alone Google Talk app (Gmail browser-based phone calling excluded).

- Show the first few words of an incoming text / SMS message sent to the Google Voice number on the caller ID name display of the phone(s) attached to the OBi202 phone port(s).  The phone will ring once as an audible alert the text message was received.  Enable this function in the OBiTALK portal Device Configuration - Google Voice Service settings.

- DNS SRV (TCP) Fragmentation Enhancement.

I am using it across two OBi202s at different locations with FW build 3585.  So far everything seems to work ok.  I did have to "check" Google Chat as a forward to location inside of the GV settings for both devices to ring the phones at the same time because one OBI I have CC on but the other I do not.
