Since I reviewed several Beta versions of Sametime 7.5 I stopped using it because of some annoying error messages in the final release – and waited for the first fixpack. Today I installed IBM Lotus Sametime 7.5 Cumulative Fix Pack 1 and played around with it for a few minutes. I added multiple communities, configured location settings – and installed is-phone from iscoord. is-phone is a plug-in for the IBM Lotus Sametime 7.5 client. So I downloaded the beta code, installed it, restarted the Sametime client – and voilá: Sametime is now my favourite softphone. It connects now to our Asterisk pbx as well as to my sipgate account. I can place my calls from my Lotus Sametime client, record the call if I want to, make notes, see call history, and so on.
This is really adding value to the Sametime client.
