CUCM feature comparison list between versions

Has anyone stumbled across a Communications Manager feature comparison list between versions on CCO?

My current requirement is to compare available features in release 4.3 against 3.2.

There have been new features added in each release between CCM 3.2 and CCM 4.3 I have tried to pick out the releases that had the biggest changes since CCM 3.2. These would be CCM 3.3(4), CCM 4.1(3) and CCM 4.2(1)Have a look;

CCM 3.3.4 New and changed Information

Forced Authorization Codes and Client Matter Codes

Cisco WebDialer

Re: CUCM feature comparison list between versions

Hi John,

You are very welcome :) There have been many great changes (as you know) since CCM 3.2. The overall feature set keeps growing and growing to meet our customers needs. The migration from 3.2 is tough but well worth it!

Take care,
