IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – May 2021

Dear IGEL Community,

Guess what? The vaccine is coming to Germany, and the spring is starting after weeks of rain and cold temperatures. Needless to say that I chose precisely that period to exchange my heating system at home… Murphys Law… May is bringing our businesses a bit back to normal, the life is re-starting everywhere too, our terraces are opening already: should I say finally? It might feel like a month like any other from an IGEL perspective, but I will try to show you the opposite. Remember our discussions about Cisco Webex meeting issues because of mismatching versions? Should be gone after our Private Build 11.05.145, where we introduced multiple Cisco Webex Meetings client versions! Same for Zoom selector: and 11.05.152

Let’s start:

IGEL Software Updates

  • IGEL OS Updates

    1. Private Builds: just one month but released seven of them: IGEL 11.04.198, 11.05.139, 11.05.140, 11.05.144, 11.05.145, 11.05.148 (DER), 11.05.152

IGEL Community Events

  1. 20th of April: IGEL Community Meetup – Mathis Huber: Security is always at the top of every company’s IT agenda, so we wanted to bring IGEL’s security manager to share his thoughts on security and how IGEL secures our solutions. Matthias answers questions and shares his views on IGEL security. Mathias is a great speaker, and it is always fun to attend his sessions. We know you will love and learn a lot from this meetup!

IGEL Technology Partners

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

    • Pretty calm here, but we expect some news there soon!
