Uniteme Unified Communicationsuniteme GA Release 18.04

Summary

eZuce is pleased to announce the General Availability of uniteme 18.04.

Dev & QA teams at eZuce have been busy as usual. We put the next generation work on hold to tackle some performance related items for one of our large customers. The biggest change is related to Mongo. MongoDB has been upgraded to version 3.4. This has the advantage of running Mongo’s WiredTiger Storage Engine. This brings with it document level locking vs. the entire collection as in MongoDB version 2.6. Additionally, database sizes will grow and shrink according to what data is stored in the database (vs. just growing forever).

In 18.04 you’ll also find some LDAP improvements, several new REST improvements and some performance tweaks.

IMPORTANT: We’re instituting a new method to upgrade so please read the complete release notes!!

Reachme is now a standalone product and is not included in 18.04 release. If you use Reachme on 17.10 do not upgrade to 18.04. Reachme V3 Beta is has been announced. If you’d like to evaluate it please contact sa@ezuce.com.

Also, make sure you see Note #2 below regarding disk space and Note #3 for new upgrade instructions!

We’re back at the next-gen work now. Our main focus for 18.08 will be operating on CentOS 7 and allowing for the use of flat file storage for storing voicemail (for those wanting to use mounted storage from a distributed file system or highly available storage). We’re still pushing ahead with Docker Containers as well but aren’t expecting that work will make it into 18.08.

Notes

  1. IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ THESE!! Full Release Notes with installation information are located here: 18.04 Full Release Notes
  2. Please note that the upgrade will take extra disk space. The MongoDB upgrade essentially makes a copy of the existing database and then re-mounts it. Please be prepared for this.
  3. Please also note that if you have a multi-server cluster vs. a single server there are specific upgrade instructions.
  4. Also, note UC-4721 regarding backup and restore.
  5. We’re still working on the ISO, the new version of Mongo is giving us some difficulty here. Please use the RPM method of installation for fresh installs for now.

Who Should Install?

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