IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – June 2021

Dear IGEL Community,

It's already one month ago that we met the last time in our Blog post. No reasons to complain anymore about cold temperatures… We are smelting away. I guess the rising temperatures are hitting people sitting in their Home offices (like I do) equally as such sitting in their offices…

And yes, we are getting closer to a new normal. Bosses are asking their employees to be present in their offices and stay away from home (again). Traveling for a single meeting is coming back, too: it seems like we all had our lessons learned applied. Just kidding!

But guess what? This situation helps us as IGEL to be more agile and to focus on new products. Stay tuned!


Just a teaser: the Web UMS is getting new features; CWA 21.06 is in the starting boxes, and we are expanding the Unified Communication Plugin selectors.


Let's start:

IGEL Software Updates

  • IGEL OS Updates

  • Private Builds: quite calm this time, "only" three: IGEL OS 11.05.160, 11.05.162, 11.05.164

IGEL Community Events

  • 10th of June: Unified Communications & GitHub Introduction: Watch the IGEL Community June 2021 Meetup for two lively tech sessions.

Unified Communications Solutions with IGEL OS 11, presented by IGEL’s Udo Jetschmanegg and Lars Glöckner. IGEL Community GitHub Custom Partition Introduction, presented by Ron Neher.

  • 29th of June: IGEL Community Meetup – Login VSI: Join the IGEL Community's Sebastien Perusat, Douglas Brown, with special guest Michael Kent, Chief Technology Officer at LoginVSI, for a lively Q&A and show & tell on how Login VSI is changing the ability of the Enterprise to deal with the non-stop rate of change of the workspace image.

IGEL Technology Partners

  • As mentioned above, we are adding new Technology Partners all the time. This month, we focused on existing Partners and created a few groups to integrate them into Slack Discussions easily. The following partners joined the IGEL Community. Visit them on the IGEL Community on Slack.
