Effective 1 October 2013, LibreOffice and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop will no longer be available as supported products in the Novell Open Workgroup Suite. Novell Open Workgroup Suite customers with maintenance will continue to receive support (including service requests and bug fixes) on these products until their current maintenance period expires. Customers will use the same process to open service requests and will not see a change in support.
New Novell Open Workgroup Suite customers or existing customers whose maintenance agreements are up for renewal may elect to purchase LibreOffice subscriptions directly from Collabora (an open source software consultancy now providing maintenance and support to SUSEs LibreOffice customers) and/or purchase SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop subscriptions directly from SUSE.
If you have questions about this announcement, please contact your Novell sales representative. For more information about Collabora, visithttp://www.collabora.com/ or www.collabora.com/services/libreoffice.
