The Global Services Operations Team is pleased to announce a number of enhancements to the Novell patch download experience, which were made in direct response to recent customer and partner feedback. We'd also like to make you aware of some of the most significant changes to Patch Finder and encourage you to check out the new functionality and improvements:

Patch Finder no longer requires that you select a product or technology up-front. If you want to narrow your search by product, simply enter any portion of the product name or version and a dynamic selection list will immediately display.

On the main Patch Finder page, you can now quickly view a chronological list of all patches, regardless of category, released in the last 60 days. Optionally, you can choose to perform a custom search for patches within your desired date range.

If you don't locate exactly what you're looking for, you can also choose to reset or clear your search criteria and begin your search again.

In the coming months, we will be providing more granularity to our patch notifications so you can subscribe to the specific product patches that interest you most. We will also be adding RSS capabilities so you can embed patch notifications in your web pages or subscribe and view updates via your favorite newsreader.

We will continue to gather customer feedback and make the improvements necessary to create a great patch download experience for our valued customers and partners. Please send comments, feedback and enhancement requests directly to PATCH DOWNLOADS
