Novell and Ximian In a posting to the Hula mailing list, Novell has stated that it is no longer providing full-time developers to work on Hula. Hula was unleashed in February 2005 to much fanfare. Things seem to have been quite recently, despite the news that iFolder and Hula would be combined into something called Maui.

What options are there now?

Now that Hula is in limbo, what options are left? I've been using Sun's Java comms suite, but they recently changed licensing back to a 1000 minimum seat license, and that is totally un-doable for me, when I only need 5. Taking it up with Sun hasn't gotten anywhere, they don't seem to give a rat's ass about it.

So, what alternatives are there? Outlook/Exchange is out for me, no Windows machines. Need everything to be accessible from the web, or via a mail client/calendar client.

Hope Hula pulls through this ok, but I need to investigate my options. ;) It's kind of scary to see support added/dropped on a whim.
