Beta registration is closed, but I'm following up with the product manager to get approval. She's out today, so I should know on Tuesday. I'll follow up via email.
I want to make sure there's no confusion about what's in Beta right now. The Cisco Jabber for Mac application is currently in Beta through the Cisco Collaboration User Group, not the WebEx Connect application. You can learn about the user group and join from the main page of the Collaboration community. The user group is open to Cisco customers and partners.
Once you're a user group member, you can learn more about the Beta in the Private Collaboration User Group community.
Jabber is the new connect client and can run hosted and on prem
P2p video is on the roadmap for jabber. UC video is slated for the more immediate future

Hmm, OK. Without the p2p video, I'm not sure of the advantage over a third party XMPP client. The one-click meeting is nice and all, but not exactly a difficult thing to implement into something like Adium.
I'm happy to announce that Cisco Jabber for Mac is now availble for customers.
WebEx Connect customers will be able to use the service on Macs for the first time, while Cisco Unified Personal Communicator Mac users will find a tremendously enhanced client built and designed specifically for the Mac.
Please visit the Cisco Jabber for Mac page on Cisco.com for more details.
We'll be launching the browser-based IM client about a month from now - it'll be supported in Firefox 3.0 or 3.5 and Safari 4.0. A rich client for Mac is still on target to be delivered before the end of the calendar year.
