GroupWise 8 will soon be shipping! The anticipation and excitement is increasing as Novell Marketing has begun some of their internal roll out activities on the Novell Campus in Provo, Utah. Similar activities are planned at the other Novell sites.

Just to name a few...

- Novell sponsored a GroupWise 8 on 8 Flag Football Tournament
- Novell sponsored a GroupWise 8 Fitness Challenge (Octathlon) for all employees
- GroupWise 8 Paintings were found on the grass around campus
- GroupWise 8 markings in the parking lot

Here are a few pictures...

  • Hi Dean,

    Good to see you are on schedule!
    Hope you enjoy the release! :)

    As added suggestion: Would it be a good idea to include an additional note with the realse for features that can be expected with service packs. Like a mini roadmap.
    It would give an extra idea & boost of all the benefits that upgrading to Groupwise 8.0.

    As an example, If I understood correctly, the Windows/Mac/Linux clients will also be more on par with each other? And maybe other nice additions that you are planning to add as also added integration with other products like Novell Teaming.

    Cheers!

  • We have shared the GroupWise and Teaming + Conferencing Road maps several times in conferences from BrainShare, GWAVACon, Advisor, etc. I will get Alex Evans to post something in his blog about more concrete plans and specifics for the next release of GroupWise.

    I will say... we are not 'planning' new features in the support packs. We want to release the support packs on a schedule and with greater and greater quality. We believe that will allow us more time to do the next release and get it out sooner because we are not spending our time on maintenance work and clean up. New features always brings instability and a longer schedule to a support pack. We want to move away from this model and GroupWise 8 SP1 will be the first release that does its best at following this model.

    The next release - code named - Windermere - will be heavy on the the Administration and WebAccess and is planned in 2010.

    More details to come - especially at BrainShare 2009!!
