Dear Sybase Customer,
Our records indicate that your company has previously licensed Sybase SQL Anywhere for the Macintosh platform. I am writing to inform you of Sybase's decision to discontinue further development of Sybase SQL Anywhere on the Macintosh platform and our plans for assisting in transition to other platforms.
As part of this transition, Sybase will complete development of the Sybase SQL Anywhere on the Macintosh platform with the 5.5.04 maintenance release. This final maintenance release on this platform is available through Sybase customer relations; 1-800-8SYBASE option #3. Please note that Sybase SQL Anywhere for Macintosh, version 5.5.04 is year 2000 compliant as described in Sybase's Year 2000 matrix posted at www.sybase.com. Sybase will continue to provide support for Sybase SQL Anywhere for Macintosh version 5.5.04 as part of Sybase's support for Sybase SQL Anywhere 5.5.x.
Sybase is extending a special offer allowing you to update from SQL Anywhere for Macintosh to the Intel version of Sybase SQL Anywhere 5.5 at no charge or alternatively special update pricing is available for SQL Anywhere Studio 6.0 on the Intel platform. If you are interested upgrading please call 1-800-8SYBASE, choose option 1, with your Macintosh registration number.
We hope that the plan outlined above will provide the resources to make a smooth transition from Sybase SQL Anywhere for Macintosh to an alternative platform. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at Terry.Orsborn@sybase.com, or call me at 519-883-6284.
