L2CPBG 0.9.3 Feature & Bugfix version

Added by Jörg Ebeling almost 3 years ago

License change

Now that L2CPBG become more and more usable, it got necessary to ensure that the free version get only used by private persons and not by companies or professionals. That's why I limited the "Free" version also to 2 phones (LDAP clients) as well as a max. of 100 contacts.

Luckily I also got convinced that it would be more approriate (in special for smaller companies) to have a more fair price-matrix instead of a "one for all fee".

If you get hit by the new limitations of the free version, think about selling a license (also to support further development). Here's the price matrix:

Version max. phones 1 Version blaming in Phone Display max. LDAP requests/h max. phonebook entries 2 Gold features 3 Price/€ 4
Free 2 12 100 0,00
Max3 3 unlimited 500 29,00
Max5 5 unlimited 1000 49,00
Max10 10 unlimited 2000 79,00
Pro10 10 unlimited unlimited 149,00
Pro50 50 unlimited unlimited 299,00
Enterprise unlimited unlimited unlimited 499,00

Before deciding to buy a license, please ensure that L2CPBG work as expected with all your phones and your CardDAV server. If you can't test it because of the free limitations, or any other reason, don't hesitate to ask for a 60 day evaluation license. Simply drop me a mail to with your real name.

Important macOS upgrade info:

If you already have l2cpbg versiom 0.9.2 installed, you need to deactivate your old l2cpbg instance via l2cpbg --service=stop and l2cpbg --service=uninstall, before installing the new version. After installing the new version, activate it again (via l2cpbg --service=install and l2cpbg --service=start)

Added config options

  prettifyNoAreaInSameArea = true|false

which strips the local area code from destination number, when located in same area. Defaults to true.

  prettifyRemoveSpaces = false|true

which will remove all spaces from a prettified phone number. Defaults to false.
