3CX Phone System v9 RC 1 available!

The release candidate for 3CX Phone System v9 (9.13373) is now available for download. A separate 3CX Assistant download is no longer required, read on….

We have added a great new feature making it much easier to deploy 3CX Assistant and 3CX Phone to extension users. The 3CX Assistant and 3CX Phone installation is now integrated into the main 3CX Phone System build and a link to it is automatically sent out to Extension users in their Welcome email. They just need to click on the link and confirm installation. Set-up will then be started and 3CX Assistant will be automatically configured with the correct extension settings.

If a new 3CX Assistant installer is available, it can be downloaded to the 3CX Phone System Server and it will be automatically used from then onwards for all new installations. In addition updates for existing 3CX Assistant installations can be downloaded to the 3CX Phone System server and will be automatically deployed (without requiring a re-install). So Deploying and managing of 3CX Assistant is now virtually administration free! To see a list of all new features in 3CX Phone System v9 read this post.
