Teamware Group, a Fujitsu subsidiary, announces the availability of edition 4 of Teamware Office 5.3 for Linux, a complete set of ready-to-run groupware applications for today's business professionals. In the new edition the main emphasis is on web service enhancements.

Edition 4 is the first Teamware Office for Linux version with the main focus on the browser side. The new look & feel for the web service client templates has been developed according to extensive usability research and customer requests. Via the renewed web service Teamware Office modules can be easily accessed with standard web browsers. The service enables fixed www addressing for any Teamware Office object over standard HTML templates making integration with other web based systems as well as search engines easy.

This enables a complete redesign of the user interface if required. When appropriate, the documents, calendars, discussions and messages residing in the Teamware environment can also be made available for non-Teamware users through the Web.
