A short list of new features includes:
* A complete overhaul of the core DNS support in Asterisk, including
  implementing full NAPTR and SRV support in the PJSIP stack via the
  libunbound library.

* The ability to publish extension state to a SIP Subscription server,
  such as Kamailio. This includes the ability to automatically generate
  a hint in the dialplan based on device state changes using the new
  autohint setting.

* Playback of media from a remote HTTP server via a URI is now supported
  by all dialplan applications and AGI. Media retrieved using a URI is
  cached in a media cache and re-used when possible.

* When using ARI to manipulate media on a resource, a list of media
  resources can now be supplied. The media resources will be played back
  sequentially in the order that they are provided.

* Channels created via ARI can now be created and handed off to Stasis
  for external control prior to performing the outbound dial. This
  enables applications to set additional state on the channel prior to
  dialing, as well as enabling certain early media scenarios.
And much more!
