Good news everyone. A new version of Teaming is available in public beta.
This is what our marketing department has to say
The open beta of Novell Teaming 2 is now available! With Novell Teaming, you get innovative team collaboration and enterprise social networking capabilities—differentiated by a focus on interoperability and a TCO that doesn't break the bank.
This product is also an ideal solution for creating, acting on and preserving all the ideas and content teams can generate in support of your organization's success. With powerful search tools that help users find relevant resources and experts, Web 2.0 collaboration capabilities that closely model the organic and interactive flow of work, and secure workspaces that provide a permanent place to store your collective intelligence, Novell Teaming brings you a people-driven competitive edge.
And if you're a Novell GroupWise customer, you have every reason to check out Novell Teaming 2. With several points of integration between this robust team collaboration solution and Novell GroupWise 8, you'll benefit from the products individually--as well as from the synergies between the two.

What does that mean for GroupWise customers? As we take these products forwards you will see a lot more close interaction between all of the products - GroupWise, Teaming, Conferencing and GW Instant Messenger. I will fill out the details in a future blog as we nail down the details and the release vehicles - but I can say that we have an exciting roadmap planned. This Teaming release is just one more step on our way to that point, and is the platform for a number of those planned integrations.
