Thanks Gert - this is exactly what we are doing. We have heavily resourced our WebAccess and iPad WebAccess work in Ascot. We are introducing several 'Windows Client' features in WebAccess with this release and we will be highlighting them again soon in this blog.
We have also made a significant architectural change for WebAccess in Ascot that will accelerate our ability to add new features to WebAccess going forward. We have removed GWINTER. Having the WebAccess Servlet talk directly to the POA using SOAP will allow us to implement features much quicker in WebAccess because we will not have to re- implement them in GWINTER - which is what we have had to do previously.
GroupWise Ascot will have many awesome new features in WebAccess. GroupWise Windermere will see this accelerate any further.
Another huge advantage to the WebAccess strategy is deployment and updates. Rolling out new features to your end users is simply updating some server pieces...no client rollout required. This will get new features in end-user's hands literally overnight.
This is what many of our customers have been asking for....
