pascom Client Update Channels

Centralised Updates

Beginning with pascom Client version 17.10, updates are no longer retrieved via the pascom phone system server, rather centrally via https://my.pascom.net.

As such, LTS and STABLE version users will also receive automatic client updates. CURRENT version users will now no longer need to update the phone system server in order to be able to distribute automatic client updates. The client will of course remain backwards compatible to the corresponding supported LTS version (also applies to mobile clients).

BETA Programme

The Idea

Based on the concept of the App store and Play Store BETA testing, there is now a BETA channel for the pascom Desktop Client. Should you switch to the BETA, you will receive all the newest features a couple of weeks before the release. All the feedback provided here in the forum helps us improve our software and avoid bugs in the STABLE channel version.

How do I become a BETA Tester?

In the client settings simply go to the “About pascom client” section (bottom) and click the “Switch to BETA version” link and follow the instructions. If a BETA version is available, the client will offer this as a normal update.

More information can be found in our documentation.

Info: Path to pascom 18

In order to simplify our internal processes, the BETA version client released today is numbered as 18, the stable however is numbered 17. This will remain the case until the release of pascom 18. The BETA client contains all current v17 version modifications plus some additional changes relating to pascom 18. This process will greatly simplify version management on our side as well as enabling us to simultaneously test backwards compatibility. In order to react quickly and efficiently to any potential issues, the STABLE version is remaining as a 17 version.
