VoipNow 2.0.4 and Automation

VoipNow 2.0.4 is available. It also includes VoipNow Automation, the latest public release before GA version. GA version will be out at Parallels Summit 2010, maybe the largest hosting gathering in US. I am saying maybe because I don’t know what HostingCon will do this year and in the past last two years it was a disappointment. Anyway, 4PSA is a Silver Sponsor at Parallels Summit, so you are kindly invited to attend and visit us there.

VoipNow Automation Release Candidate

We are showing VoipNow Automation Release Candidate at ITExpo 2010 East. In fact, we are going to release it in the next days with VoipNow Professional 2.0.4 GA. There are several important changes if we compare it with VoipNow Automation Beta, the most important being the support for Cloud Platform Bricks. This was something that we initially decided to bring in a future version of Automation, but eventually we reconsidered and decided to put it in the first public version, because there were too many changes for our customers.

Open-Xchange for Plesk Now Available for Customers

As you might know, we have partnered with Open-Xchange to integrate VoipNow features with email groupware and have improved teamwork. Open-Xchange is a cool product; it takes your existing mail server and adds groupware on top of it. You have a nice AJAX interface, Exchange like functions, mobility (ActiveSync support), etc. But you better check this demo. That demo is not using the latest skin, the one we contributed a little bit to.

What is VoipNow Pro SIP Trunking Add-on?

We receive lots of questions on sales asking what this product it:

VoipNow extension level SIP Trunking support

Most people find it in the online store and they do not have any clue about it. As you might have learned we will soon release VoipNow Core, the 4Grid solution for delivering SIP trunking, wholesale, media gateway services. VoipNow Professional has never been designed with SIP trunking capabilities, even if we have customers that use it for such services.

The above VoipNow Professional addon does a very simple thing. When enabled on an extension level, you can connect a PBX to that extension (when a DID assigned on that extension is called, it is passed further to the PBX in SIP:To). We added this option because some customers wanted to connect PBX to VoipNow Professional. But if you are serious about SIP trunking, you should implement VoipNow Core.

VoipNow Automation Beta

We launched VoipNow Automation Beta, more details are available here.

Be aware that the beta is part of VoipNow 2.0.4 beta. Do not install or upgrade to this version of VoipNow on production machines!!! You can do this only if you change some paths in installer, but anyway you have been warned!

This beta targets people with some Linux experience, because we do not ship the installation wizards for the online store. Installations instructions are available here.

If you find any issue, do not hesitate to send a bug report.

A Little Bit About Product Management

Many people ask me about the roadmap of various products, although usually it happens in informal discussions. And this is not the only question, I got many of them about how we design things, what I believe to be hot next year and so on. Although these are the questions one could ask over a few drinks, the answers are quite complicated (and they require more drinks than I can take). 🙂

VoipNow Automation Demo

Many of you already noticed it yesterday, although we did not announced it formally. As promised, we have updated our demo server with Automation. You can access Automation in VoipNow (left menu).

Username: admin
Password: amazeme

There is also a demo of the online store, you can use it to make orders. It is available at:

Right now a “Fake” payment gateway is used that authorizes all purchases. You should use the engine and one of the cards:

Visa 4111111111111111
MasterCard 5555555555554444

Please DO NOT open support tickets about this Automation demo, when we will release the beta we will provide you with details regarding bug reporting.

Also, try not to make Behavior or deployment changes in Automation because we haven’t yet implemented limitations in demo mode, therefore you can do much harm and other people will not be able to play with it. Have fun and if you want to comment you can do it here.
