This release also marks a major rethinking of the entire Collaba product line and licensing structure.
Hence, today, SYPECom is merging all four Collaba editions into one unified Collaba product, and making it available immediately under a single low-cost and flexible pricing list. Further more, our educational customers will be pleased to learn that they are now able to provide free special access to parents, without having to purchase licences for more user accounts.
Sylvain Pedneault, CEO of SYPECom, said, "We felt we needed to make the complete feature set of Collaba more accessible to everyone, and offering multiple editions with limited feature sets to lower prices was not the best way to go about it. It is time we truly unleash the full power of Collaba by reshaping our pricing list and streamlining our product line."
Simultaneously, SYPECom is starting distribution of version 7.0 of its flagship product. Collaba 7.0 adds support for Java 6.0, increases server core performance significantly, and provides improvements in many areas: WebDAV server, RSS reader, anti-virus scanning, user privileges, disk quotas, and much more.
Collaba (collaba.com) is a multimedia collaboration and communication server platform featuring secure e-mail (web & pop3/smtp, ssl, crypto.), on-line forums (web, rss, podcast, nntp), blogs (web, rss, podcast), multimedia chat, calendaring, address book, bookmarks organizer, web publishing, virtual file system (web, ftp, smb, cifs, webdav, etc.), Qualified Dublin Core support, digital portfolio, dynamic news board, directory access, powerful Single-Sign-On (SSO) features, anti-spam/virus, on-line portal management, synchronization with LDAP directories, Java developer APIs, and much more. Best of all, Collaba is very easy to install and requires only a Java platform to run.
