You may ask yourself, how could Novell possibly squeeze more value into the Open Workgroup Suite?

The new Novell Open Workgroup Suite Value Pack program entitles customers who purchase the Novell Open Workgroup Suite or renew their maintenance contracts between March 19 and Aug. 31, 2007, to purchase select third-party products at a discount. These products – which include GWAVA* Retain*, McAfee* LinuxShield*, Omni Technology Solutions’ Linux Desktop Multiplier for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, and Syncsort* Backup Express – add value to one or more components of the Novell Open Workgroup Suite.

Here we are on March 1, 2007. Our GroupWise development team has completed work on the DST GWCheck tool. This Daylight Savings Time option in GWCheck is much anticipated.

The download is not yet ready. I am told late tomorrow or sometime during the weekend for the release (Monday on the outside) as we work to complete testing. We have identified 17,000 cases that need to tested prior to release. The team has been working around the clock on this task. Please stay tuned.
