I found this TID - GW8.0.1 client requires password where 8.0.0 HP2 does not.

that discusses an issue with a GW 8.0.1 client attempting to use a GW 8 HP 2 POA. Does this mean Service Pack 1 is out now? I find no mention of it being released. The only thing that might explain this is the following:

Status: Diagnostic Pattern Available through Novell Support Advisor

Does anyone know if we are still on the Sept/Oct range release date for SP 1?
