Summary

eZuce is pleased to announce the General Availability of Uniteme 18.12.centos7. This release includes all of the same new features, improvements and fixes from 18.12 but now allows users to operate on CentOS 7.

The developers and QA staff have been incredibly busy as we’ve had to touch every service of the system and get them to compile and start (thanks team!). All services startup has moved to systemctl for service startup so there was lots of scripting work to be done. Additionally we’ve moved to pre-built freeswitch packages (1.6.20~64bit) instead of building our own.

With all CentOS 7 builds we’re moving away from building ISO’s. Users will need to use the CentOS 7 64 Bit minimal ISO and then perform an RPM install. The ISO creation process is a drain on resources and as we move towards a container based deployment would not be used.

We’re almost done with coding for the next release (19.04). This release will include support for the new Polycom x50 VVX phones. We’ll also still have both CentOS 6 and 7 releases but this will be the last release done for CentOS 6. Looking forward to version 19.08, we will release for CentOS 7 only and with no ISO’s.

  1. With the upgrade to CentOS 7, the user must install a fresh install of CentOS 7-64 bit and then use the RPM Installation method.


Who Should Install?

This release is recommended for users who need to run Uniteme on CentOS 7. If you are running a CentOS 6 based release in production, it’s recommended that you test the 18.12.centos7 release on CentOS 7 in your environment thoroughly before upgrading. This is the initial release on CentOS 7 and while we’ve done our best to regression test and test all aspects of the system, issues may arise in different environments and scenarios that are not covered in QA tests. Please contact sa@ezuce.com if think you may have a patch applied as that may be replaced during the update.

eZuce's software products continuously progress through an Agile based development methodology that keeps feature functionality comprehensive and up-to-date in response to evolving market and customer requirements.

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.

In order to ensure service continuity and stability, customers may keep their production environments unchanged for up to a 6-month period during which release updates or patches are made available. After a release is more than 6-months old, eZuce customers would have to upgrade to the latest generally available release - inclusive of all fixes to date and any new patches.
