Before we all go crazy about this subject, perhaps we should ask IBM for a
clarification about their statement about Office Vision.

Is it:
1.      Being withdrawn, as in no longer enhanced, but will continue to be
shipped and supported for bug fixes.
2.      Being withdrawn, as in no longer enhanced, but will continue to be
shipped, but not supported.
3.      No longer being shipped.

Given the fact that I continue to use Text Management/38 for mail/merge, I
can't see IBM supplying less support for OV/400 than TM/38.

Although IBM has a tendency to stop enhancing obsolete products (ex:  TM/38
and older components of Client Access, they typically keep shipping and
fixing them.)

Clearly, IBM has been "saying" that V4R4 will be the last release of
OV/400.    Bruce Vining, could you comment?
