We are pleased to announce the availability of the beta of the new version 10. V10 is a major release, with an all new – Silverlight based – user portal, 3CX MyPhone. The new 3CX MyPhone replaces the 3CX Assistant and the old 3CX MyPhone portal. Everything is now grouped in one easy to use portal.
The new 3CX MyPhone is web based, but can be installed as a desktop application. In this mode it uses the browser in the background but allows the user to resize 3CX MyPhone to their preference, as well as launch it automatically. 3CX MyPhone should also run on Macs.

The provisioning port has changed to port 5000. This means that you must change the provisioning links for the phones to “http://IPADDRESSSERVER:5000/provisioning”. You can do this via DHCP option 66 or by configuring the phones from their web interface. See the configuration guides for more information. Reboot the phones after you have made this change.
