No, I think this is the current direction of Ring. However we are not currently
supporting IAX.

It was dropped for 2 main reaons:

1. At some point some refactoring was done which broke support for IAX.

2. During the process of becoming a GNU project, we realized the library which
we used to support IAX [0] and which was still part of our dependencies was not
compatible with our licence (GPLv3) as it is GPLv2, not GPLv2+ or 3.

We are still supporting and planning to continue supporting SIP.


[0] libiax2 - I'm not actually sure where, if anywhere, this project is hosted
