    AFAIK Producteev has been EOL for years. My Team and I are still using it as our main tool for project management, but I am considering moving away from it because of the very bad (total lack of) communication from Jive on the subject. As you just listed the product here, does that mean that you ge\ot some recent inside information about the future of the product?
