I've just been to a tech-update from Cisco, where they talked about CUCM 7. Though the release itself wasn't very impressing, they have implemented a few new features that will be nice to have. Since this is a pre tech-update, I can't write to much about it, but here are a few key features I found interesting:
  • Simplified route pattern for satellite offices ("intelligent" routing based on device pools)
  • Better Sip implementation and integration
  • Line state possibilities for alerting status
  • And of course the mobility features are getting a lot better
The tech-update also provided us with information on where the presence functionality is going, which new phone models they have in production, other unified communication products and the announcement of EOL products. If you're interested, you should attend Cisco's official tech-update track near you.
