Gordano Messaging Suite

Gordano today announced a new release of the Gordano Messaging Suite (GMS), a scalable alternative to Microsoft Exchange that runs on Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX. The new release adds features to its scheduling and Webmail interfaces, which also work with Microsoft Outlook.

The company also added new features to Gizmos, Gordano's JavaScript mashup technology that gives users the ability to interface with external data sources. Gizmos now can translate an e-mail into the user's choice of language, and automatically open a Webmail compose window when a 'mailto' link is clicked on in a Web page.

Gordano aligned Gizmos with Greasemonkey code, giving users instant access to more than 18,000 user written scripts that can be adapted to work with GMS, company officials said. Greasemonkey is a Web browser extension that allows users to inject JavaScript into an HTML page after it has been loaded into a Web browser. Google recently used this same technology to extend its Gmail service. Gordano has made its Gizmos completely open, allowing them to be implemented by anyone, rather than restricting access to their own development teams as Google has chosen, Gordano representatives said.
