I have seen the new client and I was totally impressed, as I know you will be as well. I cannot go into any details but it's a LOT more than just a MAC client. Anyway Cisco has told me Beta in April May. I hope it's sooner.
Cisco just announced the Cisco Jabber client for MAC. I assume this is the first of the unified clients to come out, and I hope this will be the client for Webex Connect as well.
Any Cisco Webex folks here care to comment?
Looks like Mark answered your question in the other thread, but I'll re-post it here for other people's reference:
Cisco Jabber for Android and for Nokia will both be available in April, and Jabber for Mac will be available during the first half of this calendar year. We'll make announcements as the specific Jabber apps are available for download on cisco.com and various app stores.
So nothing to download just yet and as Srini mentioned, Cisco Jabber really brings together CUPC/WebEx Connect into one UC client experience available on Mac, PC, and mobile devices - on-premises or on-demand. The Mac client will be the first Cisco Jabber desktop client we release.
One further question is it still slated until CME 8.6 that the Jabber clients will be supported on the likes of the UC5xx products?
We have just entered partner beta and are moving towards a customer ship date at the end of this July...so a about a month and a half away from release.
It's still in Beta tests. The scheduled Beta completion is Sept 22, after that I'm not sure on relasse timing.
It may come sooner.
Hope that helps
