Sametime 8.0.1 is out, and has some nice improvements

Adam Garetenberg blogged about many of the new features in Sametime 8.0.1 yesterday.  Carl points out some of his favorites, including AdminP support to update contact lists (finally!!) note this is currently on Windows only. For me one of the things I have been looking for is the ability to control screen sharing across two monitors, see Adam’s post for a screenshot, I have been waiting for this for a long time. On the Sametime Gateway side, there is now support for SIP Connections that are using NAT Addresses.   I have spoken to many people who want to deploy the gateway, but this was a big obstacle for them because of internal policies regarding placement of servers in the DMZ, so this should help more people deploy the gateway. I also had a pleasant surprise this morning when I went to download Sametime 8.0.1, the IBM Passport site where customers download software has been improved, I was actually easily able to find Sametime 8.0.1 to download, and for those of you who use the Passport site you know that is really saying something. Of course don’t forget to follow Sametime on Twitter (although it is running a bit behind as it forgot to Tweat the release of 8.0.1 🙂 ) Detailed system requirements for Sametime 8.0.1

    Finding Sametime Limited Use or Quickr Entry on the new Passport Advantage is a HUGE pain. Emoticon You have to go through “All my downloads”, and it’s listed near the bottom. It’s in semi-date-posted order.

    Having an MSI installer for the client that actually works is a huge bonus as well!!!
