eZuce is pleased to announce the General Availability of sipXcom 18.12.

Do not directly upgrade to 18.12 from any version before 18.04 using the old method of changing the yum repo file. Please read the release notes for 18.04 and utilize the same methods of the upgrade script. Run a complete backup before upgrading.

This is a relatively small update as we’re continuing to work on CentOS 7 compatibility. We’ll have a separate 18.12.CentOS7 release coming out shortly after 18.12 becomes available.

The one major new feature in this release is the added ability of users to be able to set their language preference in the New User Portal.
