R17.0 Now Available

R17.0, a major update to Isode’s product set, is now available, from our website, for customers and evaluators. Significant changes include:

  • Harrier for Exchange: Introduced with R16.6 for use with Isode products, our web based messaging client is now available for use with Microsoft Exchange.
  • Every IM domain in M-Link can now be configured to run with an independent directory. This enables support of multi-domain configurations with independent directories for users and groups.
  • Extensive improvements to ACP127 and ACP142 capabilities and management in M-Switch have been made, including a wide range of capabilities aimed specifically at Operators.
  • M-Vault has enhancements to OCSP support and built-in Web user password changing.

A comprehensive list of the new features in R17.0 can be found on the R17.0 Release Page.

M-Link XMPP/IRC Gateway

A new whitepaper on the Isode website (Interconnecting XMPP and IRC) shows how Isode’s M-Link XMPP Server can be connected to and used in conjunction with chat services using IRC (Internet Relay Chat) in a range of deployment scenarios.

In order to help our customers and evaluators establish connections between XMPP Multi-User Chat (MUC) rooms and IRC channels, without downgrading security for XMPP users with XMPP traffic we’ve published a new evaluation guide.
