Deprecations

Here you will find an overview of services that no longer work with the current pascom version or will not be supported in the future.

Deprecation of MacOS 11

Announcement Date
June 2024 October 2024

We will stop supporting MacOS 11 from October 2024. Please update your MacOS version in good time. There will also be no more bug fixes for MacOS 11 until the deadline.



Deprecation of the Asterisk Dialplan “System” command

Software

Date with Version
01.04.2024

As of April 1, 2024, we will remove the “System” dialplan command. This command was mainly used in the combinations “System(mail)” or “System(curl)”. For example, to automatically send a notification by e-mail or to forward REST requests to third-party systems.

As a replacement for your own customized scripts or inline scripts, we recommend

Use the notification feature in the actions, which offers a secure and efficient notification alternative. Replace “System(curl)” calls with the Asterisk curl() function call.

You do not have to do anything if you do not use the script function.
