I have now worked out that the version of iSymphony that is being distributed with the latest stable version of FreePBX is very old!..
See the official word from iSymphony support…
iSymphony v2.x is end of life’d and was last updated in 2013. I’d be interested as to what version of FreePBX you’re installing that comes with iSymphony v2.8. Since it’s end of life’d there is no support offered for more than a year (May 2015).
When you install FreePBX it installs iSymphony 2.8.8 as part of the install.
So I tried to upgrade. OMG the instructions on the iSymphony website “leave a little to be desired”.
So my question is how come the FreePBX disto is so far behind the current release of iSymphony?
I know there is talk of Smooze releasing their own CTI for FreePBX which I cant wait for any news of this?
From what I have been told many other installers have had similar issues with iSymphony and are choosing just not to run CTI, I also have used FOP2 (getting a little dated now) - what other decent commercial products are out there?
Look forward to your comments on this as CTI is important to me and my customers.
You might want to look at at fop2 again, it is actually being actively developed (by Nicolas) , it has no memory leaks (no poor java code there ), is highly customizable and at 40 bucks it makes iSymphony look totally lame and over priced. . . . (JM2CWAE)
yea but still quite dated. I used to run FOP about 4 years ago and from what I can see has not really changed that much. In my mind needs a bit of a makeover from a end user perspective. Browser based apps can be a bit of a pain to users we find.
It is now FOP2, have you tried it yet ? it’s free for a few endpoints and by my criteria not a PITA at all. But it’s your call, your money and your choice to trust java code or not. Do you use the UCP by any chance?
