Kerio Operator 1.1.0 RC1 is ready for testing. You can download it here: http://www.kerio.cz/cz/betas/operator
With RC1, the Operator team focused on stabilization and bug fixing. The main bug fixes can be divided into the following categories:
- It is now possible to add a second identity on a Snom m3 (DECT SIP phone)
- Corrected duplicity checks when adding provisioned phones manually (it was possible to add a second phone with the same HW address).
- Corrected duplicity checks during auto-discovery when you first entered a phone manually with a wrong model type and then connected the phone to the network.
- It is now possible to remove an auto-provisioned phone in one step (no need to remove extensions first).
- Changing phone type to Polycom IP 7000 erased the HW address.
- The dialog that offered phone restart after a major configuration change sometimes offered restart time that was very close to the current time. The algorithm now avoids those "close" times.
- The user name appeared twice on the display of Cisco 7960 phone - in the top line and in extension description. The name was removed from the top line.
- Call forwarding did not work with some SIP providers if you used the simple forwarding mode (ie. forwarding to a single number). The reason for this is that these SIP providers have a relatively short limits for ringing times. The limit can be easily exceeded when forwarding to a cell phone or some remote destination. The solution is to shorten the ringing time by accepting the call, playing a voice prompt and simultaneously dialing the forwarded destination.
Voicemail/E-mail integration with Kerio Connect:
- Voicemail messages were duplicated if you first configured sending of messages over SMTP and then enabled the integration with Connect (the SMTP configuration remained active).
- The error message after an unsuccessful integration handshake was too technical.
- Call transfer did not work on some phones (for example 3CX softphone). This was caused by a bug in Asterisk 1.4.38 we used in Operator 1.1. The problem has been solved by upgrading to Asterisk 1.4.41.
- Internet Explorer 7 and Internet Exprorer 8 incorrectly displayed warnings about insecure (plain-text HTTP) transfer when displaying notifications. This was solved by refactoring the code so that IE7 and IE8 like it better.
- Internet Explorer 8 displayed scrollbars in the Call Constraint edit dialog even if there was no need
Other issues in the Administration GUI:
- If you save a log in HTML format, it is now saved with highlighting.
- The System Health screen now remembers the selected time range
- Displayed columns and the setting of sorting are now remembered in almost all Admin GUI screens.
- SMTP authentication data were sometimes not stored when configuring the account for sending e-mail notifications
