Novell has released ‘Chinook’, the code name for the Novell Data Synchronizer Mobility Pack 1.1! It is now available for immediate download….
This is the culmination release of all of the ‘beta’ releases that have happened since we released the inaugural Mobility Pack last September. If you have been following along…and I know many of you have – we have released three updates since September 2010 in an effort to continually provide fixes, new features, value and progress for this technology. This release is cumulative and includes all changes, features, stability fixes and performance changes from September until now.
I will refer you to a previous blog post on the best way to get the code and be notified in the future of other updates!
The delta between Update 3 and 1.1 is simply a few bug fixes. No new enhancements or additional functionality. These last few weeks were all about stability, bake time and making sure that we were truly delivering a better product! See the readme for the list of final bug fixes and for details on the best way to get the code!
In addition to the Mobility Pack 1.1 release, we also continue to update the infrastructure pieces of this technology so that 3rd-party connectors can take advantage of the latest fixes and enhancements.
If you have not taken a look at the current connectors, you can now take any of the 3S connectors (SugarCRM, SharePoint, or Salesforce.com) for a 30-day a test drive. These eval versions are available on download.novell.com.
You’ll also want to check out our Connector Marketplace, where you can download, evaluate and purchase all of the Data Synchronizer connectors that Novell currently offers. This marketplace will continue to be updated as our partner community along with Novell provides more and more connectors.
The next release of the Mobility Pack is code named ‘Delaware’. Delaware is officially scheduled to release this summer. However, as you have already become accustomed to, we will be releasing updates all along the way and new capabilities as we go.
Support for HTML emails is one of the next major features planned for Delaware!
Note: The build number for Mobility Pack 1.1 is 315.
