Cisco a annoncé la disponibilité il y a quelques jours de la version 10.6 de Jabber pour Windows, Mac, IOS et Android.

Nouvelles fonctionnalités:

Chat and Presence

    Alert When Available - Set your client to notify you when a contact becomes available. Right-click over the user's name to select the Alert When Available option. You are notified the first time the user next becomes available. A message notification is displayed on the top-right corner of your screen to alert you that the user is available.

    Locations - Create, define, and display your location in your client for your contacts to see. Configure the Locations feature using the Location_Enabled parameter, and users can define their settings in the Options menu.

    Spell Check - For Windows 7 and Windows 8, you can define a default language from the Options menu. From the chat window with another user, you can personalize the language for chats with that user that is different from the default language in your client.

    Print Chat - You can print a conversation with a right-click from a chat window with another user or by pressing CTRL + P. You can also highlight a portion of the text to print it.

    AutoSave Chat - From the Options menu, you can automatically save chats to your computer when you close a chat window. Once the chats are saved to your computer, search the chat files or use your Windows file search capability to search the chat files. You can save peer-to-peer and group chat conversations. This feature is off by default.

    Client Behavior at Start Up - By default, the client opens in a minimized state. However, you can configure the client to open in the same state that it was in when you last closed it. For example, if you last exited the client with the Jabber window open, then the next time you start Jabber, the window is opened. You set the HonourLastWindowState parameter to true. The option to Start Cisco Jabber when my computer starts must be enabled by the user for the parameter to take effect.

    Remove Group Chat Participants - The person who starts a group chat can now also remove group chat participants. Removed chat participants can be re-invited to the chat room at any time.

    Conversation Tab Reordering - You can drag and drop any kind of tab in your conversation window to put them in your preferred order. You can drag and drop tabs from person to person chat, group chat, and persistent chat room conversations. You can also drag and drop tabs from persistent chat room searches and filters, and all types of call tabs for audio and video.

    Conversation Tab Switching Shortcut - You can move between chat tabs by using CTRL+TAB keyboard navigation, or use CTRL+SHIFT+TAB to move up and down between tabs for each conversation.

    Chat Security Labels - Label chats with security labels are now available, such as "secret" or "top secret", or your company can create its own labels. Compliant with the XEP-256 standard.

    Passwords for Persistent Chat Rooms (on-premises deployments only) - Persistent chat room administrators can restrict access to rooms by adding passwords to them.

    Save Chat History to Outlook Folder - Enable saving chat history automatically in a Microsoft Outlook folder. This feature is off by default. Prerequisites: Microsoft Exchange 2010 or 2013.


    Share Menu - A new menu is available from chat windows to share your screen and start instant WebEx meetings. To access these options, select the More button from the conversation window.

    Size Limit for File Transfers - Define a file size limit for Cisco Jabber users when transferring files.

    File Transfer enhancements (on-premises deployments only, prerequisite: Cisco Unified Communications Manager 10.5(2) ) - In addition to standard file transfer between peers, you can now transfer files in group chats or persistent chat rooms. You can also use this feature to enable file transfer compliance, where you can manage screen captures and file transfers to restrict who can send and receive files, and keep a history of the file transfer and screen captures for auditing purposes.

Voice and Video

    Do Not Disturb - Call alerts and ringers are suppressed when your presence is Do Not Disturb, or in any red presence state. If you receive a call while in Do Not Disturb, you still see a missed call notification on your client. However, if you are using a headset with its own ringer, then the call rings is not suppressed on the headset. Both administrators and users can change settings for this feature.

    Call Notifications on Other Device - For users who do not want to interrupt their work to answer the phone, you can now disable incoming call alerts, which requires the call to be answered from a desk phone or a headset.

    Mute Before Answer - When you are joining a call, you can now mute your phone before you connect to the call.

    Audio Device Selection - You can select your preferred headset or other audio device directly from chat windows. A new option allows you to open audio options in the Jabber client, and select your microphone, headset, and ringer preferences.

    Ring on All Devices - You can hear incoming Jabber calls and alerts on your computer speakers and all connected devices. Even if your headphones are plugged in, when you receive a Jabber phone call or IM alert, the sound is played in both your headset and through your computer speakers. This feature is enabled by default, but users can change their ringer and alert preferences in the Audio tab of the Options menu.

    Call Stats - When on a call, users can now view information about the active call from their File menu, under View > Show call statistics.

Japanese Language

    This release includes improved Japanese localization.

User Management

    Single Sign On for Expressway for Mobile and Remote Access - You can now use SAML Single Sign On when connecting to the client from outside the corporate firewall on the Expressway for Mobile and Remote Access. Prerequisite: Cisco Expressway VCS-C or VCS-E 8.5(2).

    Mandatory Upgrade Support - You can now enable the client to require users to upgrade their client. To set mandatory upgrades for on-premises deployments, you set the Mandatory parameter in the upgrade .xml file to true. If you do not define mandatory upgrades, or you set it to false, then users can choose to install the update. If you set the mandatory parameter to true, then users can only select to install the update or exit the client. This feature is supported in Cisco Jabber for Windows 10.5(2) and later.

    Flexible Jabber ID - When setting up Jabber, the Jabber ID (which identifies the Jabber user) can be mapped to the Directory URI field on Cisco Unified Communications Manager. This ID allows Jabber to identify the Jabber user by their AD mail attribute or their AD msRTCSIP-primaryuseraddress attribute. A user can log into Jabber with their sAMAccountName attribute, while the Jabber ID is mapped to the Directory URI field. For more information, see the ID Address Scheme section in the Cisco Jabber 10.6 Deployment and Installation Guide.

    Multiple Presence Domains - Also known as Multiple IM Address Domains, Jabber can be deployed into an infrastructure where users are organized into more than one domain, or into domains with subdomains.

US Federal Government Requirements

    FIPS 140-2 - You can use Cisco Jabber for Windows in compliance with FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard, Publication 140-2) to ensure compliance with the standards for information security and encryption. When you set your Operating System to run in FIPS mode, Jabber detects FIPS mode and also runs in it. For more information, see the Security chapter in the Cisco Jabber 10.6 Planning Guide
