Have a drink on us...
We planned the current Websydian release to be GA at the 7th CA Plex/2E conference. It's difficult to
plan software releases precisely because there is always something unforeseen. Nevertheless, we did it.
The release is ready.
We were looking forward to celebrating our new release with you. But we can't. What we hadn't foreseen was
the change of conference dates, and as we have other obligations on the conference dates, we will not be
Even though we are not there we wish you an excellent conference. We are sponsoring a small cocktail event
Monday June 1 at the conference venue so there's still an opportunity to celebrate. The conference
committee has promised us that they will take good care of you on our behalf. And we know they will. See details about the
cocktail event on the conference web site.
And remember there's still time to sign up for the conference.
