I remember hearing some time ago (I can't recall where) that GroupWise was dead. Well, apparently not. Novell have stepped up their commitment to GroupWise, and have today unveiled long-term plans for its enterprise collaboration product. There will be three new releases of the software over the next four years, and the next release of GroupWise, codenamed Sequoia, is due this summer.

"While Novell continues to garner many positive reviews for our Linux and open source strategies, we also want to be clear that our GroupWise customers can look forward to a bright future with Novell and GroupWise on the platform of their choice." - David Patrick, general manager of platforms and services at Novell.
