Release Advisory



Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc. © 2007–2008

As of February 1, 2012, Genesys is no longer an affiliate of Alcatel-Lucent; any indication of such affiliation within Genesys products or packaging is no longer applicable. Please see the Genesys website at for more details.

The following information applies to Genesys 7.6.x software and is important for you to note:

Genesys follows applicable third-party redistribution policies to the extent that Genesys solutions utilize functionality of commercial or non-commercial third parties. For specific information on any third-party software used in this product, see the Read Me.

Security Pack on UNIX is now located on the Genesys 7.5 Security Pack CD.

If you are using the unilogin.dll library, and are creating a customized security banner for display at login, keep in mind the following limitations:

Refer to the Genesys 7.6 Security Deployment Guide for more information about the security banner.

If you are migrating from release 7.5 to 7.6, you do not have to migrate your Configuration Database to release 7.6. Configuration Server 7.6 is fully compatible with a 7.5 Configuration Database. However, if you use applications of type GVP Voice Communication Server in your configuration, consider upgrading the Configuration Database to release 7.6, which corrects an issue related to initialization scripts for this type of application.

Framework no longer supports backward compatibility of the Keep-Alive Protocol (KPL) for 6.5 clients. Genesys suggests that customers use Advanced Disconnect Detection Protocol (ADDP) instead. Refer to the Framework 7.6 Deployment Guide for information about ADDP.

The Configuration Utilities CD is no longer required and has been discontinued. The Configuration Import Wizard is now available on the Management Framework CD.

You can now customize the log level of log events to suit your particular needs, or even disable a log completely. See the Framework 7.6 Management Layer User's Guide for details.

New users are no longer assigned to an Access Group by default, and must be explicitly assigned to Access Groups by an administrator or another authorized user. You can disable this behavior if required, so that persons of type Agents are automatically assigned to the Users Access Group, and other persons (non-agents) are automatically assigned to the Administrators Access Group by default, as was the case in release 7.5 and earlier. See the Genesys 7.6 Security Deployment Guide for detailed information.
