Super Duper Improved Jabber on it's way to you...
Are you excited? Cisco sure is.... For.... Jabber 12.7 !

At my Cisco Live recap, I talked about how Jabber would be seeing a major cosmetic overhaul to match it's other collaboration clients *cough* Webex Teams *cough* was Spark *cough*. It was released mid-September, and aside from the visual changes, I haven't heard anything bad about it. There will be a dot one version released in the next month or so, which we will likely use as the roll out version, so we want to get some experience with 12.7 as soon as possible.

I'll be testing on my machine today and if there's nothing glaring, I'll be pushing it out to the rest of the team as well.

Let me know if you have any issues.

Heads up, major issue is having Jabber 12.7 and Webex Meetings app
installed.

By default, Jabber 12.7 tries to launch Webex meetings in Jabber as a SIP
client which obviously isn't the full Webex experience.

Users can change if they join with Webex Meetings app or Jabber app in
dropdown on meeting reminder or in the dropdown at the bottom of the
Meetings tab.

You can change this in the jabber-config.xml under Options section with a
parameter called ConfMediaType-

You can also change the default layout back to the old style via the
UXModel parameter-

Re: Super Duper Improved Jabber on it's way to you... [ In reply to ]
Yeah the feature parity is getting better with regard to a Webex Meetings meeting and joining from Jabber, but if your users play around with the in-meeting content, whiteboard (who actually uses these), etc then it becomes painful to explain which way to join what meeting and how.

I would pre-deploy the Webex Meetings app with the installer flags set to not add desktop icons and pop up because it certainly will do that do you once you’ve joined a modern meeting by launching it from Jabber. I am still very salty about that.

Otherwise if you do have the luxury of forcing it to launch in Jabber only and that works for your customers and their needs/workflow then that is certainly less complex to deal with.

Other than that we’ve not really had any issues with Jabber 12.7 specifically at this point.

Thanks Brian.

I’m pretty sure that Jabber trying to launch webex meetings was there before 12.7 – I experienced it a few times. Not sure about that config parameter though – will have to investigate. Last time I checked it was a _bit_ too draconian.

Also, reverting the “old” style, isn’t really the old style. It just separates out the “chat/video” window. I say this, because all the other changes still exist. Like the line number selection has moved all the way to the bottom! Yuck.
