+=== Information for upgrading from Zaptel to DAHDI ===
+As announced in early 2008, Digium is renaming the Zaptel telephony
+interface project to DAHDI (Digium Asterisk Hardware Device Interface)
+to accommodate the desires of the owner of the Zaptel trademark for
+This version of Asterisk can only be built using DAHDI, and as a
+result there are number of changes that will be visible to previous
+users of Asterisk with Zaptel.
+First, the modules that directly use services from DAHDI have been
+renamed; the new names are:
+ chan_zap.so -> chan_dahdi.so
+ app_zapbarge.so -> app_dahdibarge.so
+ app_zapras.so -> app_dahdiras.so
+ app_zapscan.so -> app_dahdiscan.so
+Second, the behavior of many modules has changed due to the switch to
+DAHDI; the changes are listed below.
+ Incoming and outgoing channels managed by this module will be
+ 'DAHDI' channels instead of 'Zap' channels.
+ All CLI commands that began with 'zap' have been renamed to 'dahdi'
+ All Asterisk Manager Interface (AMI) actions that began with 'Zap'
+ have changed to 'DAHDI' prefixes.
+ The ZapSendKeypadFacility dialplan application has been renamed to
+ The configuration for the channel driver will be read from
+ /etc/asterisk/chan_dahdi.conf instead of /etc/asterisk/zapata.conf.
+ The ZapBarge application has been renamed to DAHDIBarge.
+ The ZapRAS application has been renamed to DAHDIRAS.
+ The ZapScan application has been renamed to DAHDIScan.
