Linux Telephone Answering Device (lintad) is a fax and voicemail application. It uses a softmodem as a soundcard attached to the phoneline to play greetings and record messages. Messages and faxes are made available to browsers via Apache and PHP.

Release Notes: This release fixes a problem that occurred in version 0.0.6 when running as a daemon.
Release Notes: This version eliminates the need for a true hardware modem. lintad can now function using a single Lucent/Agere controllerless modem.
Release Notes: This version adds a faxserver capability. In addition to receiving voicemails and faxes, lintad can act as a Web-based faxserver for Linux and Windows clients. Other minor improvements and bugfixes were also made.
Release Notes: This release fixes a fax detection bug that was introduced in version 0.0.3 when adding busy/fastbusy detection - the fax CNG center frequency was set to 1093Hz instead of the correct 1100Hz. This has resulted in faster fax detection in many cases.
Release Notes: This version adds a user request - it can now be controlled by the signals SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2. UUCP-style locking has also been added, which together with signals allows lintad to share the modem with another process.
