Avaya just announced (9/9/2010) General Availability of Service Update 8 for CallPilot 5.0 servers.

*Important note to Meridian Mail users. If your company is still running the CallPilot predecessor Meridian Mail, it is going to be critically important to upgrade to CallPilot as soon as possible. Not only will that enable all of the added features, functionality, and patches that have been added, it will also make it possible for you to access Avaya support when needed. If you have questions about this, please let me know.

What is Service Update 8 (SU8)?
SU8 is the latest in a series of Service Updates made available for CallPilot 5.0 systems. The update comprises six components: a CallPilot server update with additional features and software patches bundled in; improved versions of CallPilot Manager/Reporter, Application Builder, Desktop Messaging client, My CallPilot web-messaging application, and server security update.

Combined, these components further enhance CallPilot performance by incorporating all content previously released within earlier SUs/PEPs and over 100 additional quality improvements and customer-requested capabilities.
