Many of you have been following the five part blog series that has spelled out some of the technical decisions and choices that have been made or considered regarding the next major release of GroupWise. As you all know, the code name for that release is Windermere. It is scheduled to release by the end of the year and authorized beta is expected to expand in June. The product has been in an SDK/API beta since January.
Today, Novell announced the release of GroupWise 2012 SP2. This support pack releases eight months after SP1 and contains not only the expected set of fixes, new platform support, and increased reliability, but also contains some significant new functionality. GroupWise 2012 SP2 also includes technology called GroupWise Coexistence Solution for Exchange.
As the blog has solicited input regarding decisions that will impact Windermere, there was a need to communicate back to this audience and update each blog affected. Here are a list of decisions that because of your input and feedback, we have adjusted our solution.
This is Part 5. Engineering will very quickly be winding down the changes and new development that will be in the Windermere release. Engineering continues to find things they want to share and socialize with the GroupWise Community.
This series of Windermere technical updates have served to educate not only GroupWise Administrators, but also Technical Services, Consulting and Dedicated/Premium support personnel. In addition, the discussions have allowed engineering to publicly weigh assumptions and decisions. Thank you for continuing to read along, comment, and participate in these important topics.
While BrainShare has been a personal distraction for a few weeks and the GroupWise blog has suffered, the engineering team has steadily made progress in a variety of areas. Here is an update!

I thought we were done with a three part series, but it looks like we have a few more points to discuss and share with you. I would like to say this will be the last such blog submission, but I don’t want to be called a liar when we end up doing a part 5. I guess we will just have to see.
