*RELEASE IV OF SCO UNIX WILL SOON NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE
On June 30, 1999, Niakwa made available its Release V RunTime for SCO Unix, which includes all of the new and enhanced features introduced in NPL Revision 4.3 and 5.0, documented in the NPL Release V Compendium, as they pertain to the SCO Unix environment.
The associated Revision 5.01 IDE CD-ROM is scheduled to be shipped to all renewed resellers this month. Due to the delay, we have extended the dates during which we will offer Release IV of SCO Unix to provide adequate time for testing and readying your application for Release V. Following are the revised dates.
Release V of SCO Unix will replace the previous Release IV SCO Unix versions as of July 1, 2000. At that time, Release IV of SCO Unix will no longer be available for new sales. No changes have been made to current pricing of new SCO Unix RunTimes.
For all Release IV to Release V upgrade orders, the NPL Universal Upgrade package will be shipped along with a Certificate of License and Authenticity, which provides an easy-to-use, registration-based upgrade that inherits the serial number of the existing Gold Key and does not require the return of the old Gold Key. The upgrade requires the use of SHOWNPL, which can be copied from any 4.2x or higher Gold Key diskette or downloaded from Niakwa's website, www.niakwa.com, in order to obtain the correct RunTime information. Standard upgrade pricing applies. Release V of SCO Unix will replace the previous Release IV SCO Unix versions for all upgrades as of July 1, 2000.
Replacements of SCO Unix RunTimes, Release IV, will be provided through September 30, 2000. At that time an upgrade to the current version will be required.
Current new, upgrade and replacement policies apply. Please refer to your NPL price list.
