Novell Technical Subscriptions
Novell Technical Subscriptions provide you with the latest beta and shipping software available. Software is available on CD/DVD but you can also go to the Subscriber Portal to download software that is "in-between" the CD/DVD releases.
Beta software allows a preview of a soon-to-be-released product. Although Beta software has most of the features of the final product, it includes software versions that are not fully complete and are still being tested by customers. This software has a trial license and must be upgraded after a certain date.
Novell Shipping software is the most current sellable version of a software program. In most cases, the software is a full-featured complete product release. When you receive Novell Shipping software, you are receiving the latest software available.
For a complete list of all the evaluation software that currently ships as part of the Novell Software Evaluation and Development Library and the Novell Professional Resource Suite, access the current CD breakdown for that product.
