eZuce is pleased to announce the General Availability of sipXcom 18.08.

Important – Do not directly upgrade to 18.08 from any version before 18.04. The 18.04 upgrade must be completed first. Please read the release notes for 18.04 if you are not on 18.04 yet.

The two major features in this release are the Admin GUI Menu restructuring and the addition of the ability to age voicemail out of the system by user group.

The Admin GUI’s menus have been updated to be sorted alphabetically and with some sub-menus. The menus have always been built dynamically based on which services were enabled. This lead to the system menu becoming as long as it was and menu items not being sorted. Well, we decided to address these issues and bring some structure to the menus. Hopefully, new users of the system will find things more easily and hopefully, our long-term admins adjust in a timely manner.


sipXcom New Features:

  • Automatic Voicemail purging by User Group

sipXcom Improvements:

  • Admin GUI Restructuring
  • Set file names for Network Packet Capture Service so they end in .pcap when downloaded.

  2. The regular release of 18.08 will continue to use the upgrade script we started using in 18.04.

Who Should Install?

This release is recommended for all 4.6 and later installations. If you have a patch installed to your system a new patch may be required.

New software releases are made at a rate of two to four releases a year. Releases are numbered in the <yy>.<mm>.<uu> format where <yy> and <mm> designate the year and the month, respectively, in which a release is made generally available. Where applicable, <uu> corresponds to an update release relative to a general release on which fixes are made available.
