Howdy Digium AA50 Customers,
We dropped software release 18.104.22.168 onto the BE downloads portal Wednesday of last week, about 25 seconds before everyone left for the Thanksgiving holiday. Ooh, so intriguing. Let’s talk about what changed
First, you’ll notice those .bmp files in the downloads portal, those should be placed in the /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/phoneprov_configs directory on the unit. You can wget or tftp them in or remove the CF and transfer them in. With those in the proper location, your auto provisioning Polycom phones will now come up with the Digium|Asterisk logo. Hooray!
Next, we fixed a bug with voicemail to e-mail.
We made sure voicemail to e-mail attachments were getting delivered to your mailboxes in regular WAV format.
The timezone files now get backed up when you take a backup.
NTP’s properly getting served to IP phones in the event that you’d defined an upstream NTP provider.
The phone auto provisioning system now gives Polycom phones the proper timezone offset per your AA50 configured timezone.
We addressed a nasty call forward triangulation issue.
Calls to Ring Groups where one member had set a call forward on their phone no longer follow that forward. Hooray.
The unit won’t let you flashupdate to the app.ldr file. We had someone ignore the request to upload the uImage file. D’oh.
The Directory application now properly deals with multiple users of the same first or last names.
One of our preferred SIP trunking partners has decided to go another direction with their business, so we’ve removed them from the list.
And in my best Ron Popeil, “But wait, there’s more!”
Files over 1024 lines don’t blow up the file editor or get truncated.
Ringgroups out to IVR menus now work, instead of breaking.
”Shoestring potatoes, shoestring carrots, there’s still more!”
We marged the Save Changes and Activate Changes into one less confusing button called “Apply Changes” – this is sure to be a big hit.
The Apply Changes button, formerly the Activate Changes button, now deals better, meaning it works just fine, if users decide to triple, quadruple, or even septuple-click the button.
And, finally, the timezone files were updated to the latest NIH release.
I flew all the way from Huntsville, and boy are my arms tired!
