OS/2 and eComStation OSNews reader Prognathous writes: "Well, actually it was released earlier this year, but I couldn't find any references in your news section, so it's about time. The only problem is that other than in usenet, details are scant and the official release was very subdued (search the page for "4.52")." This release is only available to IBM's active software subscription customers of OS/2 Warp 4 and it does seem to be a service pack ("Convenience Package" as IBM calls it). IBM does not intend to provide any additional convenience packages in the future.

I am pretty sure the last convenience pack was also called the last one that would be offered. It was available through . This current last one doesn't seem to have much that isn't available elsewhere anyway. With project ODIN and Xfree86/2 and eCommstation still around, I think it's a little premature to pronounce it dead. Admittedly, about the only thing I'll call "dead" is CP/M. I can still use my OS/2 machine to perform much of what I do with a computer.
