OTEX, TSX: OTC), the largest independent provider of enterprise content
management (ECM) software and solutions, today announced the latest release of
its Livelink ECM - eDOCS DM document management offering (formerly Hummingbird

including support for the latest Microsoft technologies.
    Open Text is presenting details on eDOCS DM version 5.2 today at the
International Legal Technology Association (ILTA)'s 30th Annual Educational

    "Open Text is continuing to invest in the eDOCS product line to better
address the needs of our customers today and in the future," said Kirk
Roberts, President, Livelink ECM Division at Open Text. "This new version will
allow our customers to further leverage their investments, deploy eDOCS DM on
Windows Vista and leverage the new capabilities of Microsoft Office 2007."
    The release of eDOCS DM 5.2 marks another milestone on the road to
"DM X," the upcoming major release that represents the true convergence of
Open Text and Hummingbird technologies and know-how. With DM X, customers will
be able to take advantage of the broader product set Open Text has to offer
while continuing to derive value from their eDOCS deployment. Unveiled earlier
this year (, DM X will be
demonstrated at Open Text's LiveLinkUp Orlando user conference this October.
    The latest release of Livelink ECM - eDOCS builds upon the rich heritage
of the DM product providing both significant enhancements to the current
release, as well as brand new features and capabilities. Customers will be
able to deploy many of the new third party integrated product offerings and
desktop operating systems within their organizations, such as Microsoft Office
2007, Microsoft Windows Vista, Lotus Notes, Corel WordPerfect Office, Adobe
Acrobat 8, and more. Key capabilities include:

       entirely new interfaces including Office 2007 and Windows Vista,
       benefiting any customers that are on the fast track to deploying those
       platforms and wishing to continue to leverage their eDOCS DM

    -  New DM Extension for Lotus Notes provides robust document management
       capabilities directly within the Lotus Notes client. Customers
       leveraging Lotus Notes will have seamless access to the rich document
       management experience without having to leave the Notes client. Users
       will be able to drag and drop email to DM and will also have full DM
       search capabilities and exposure of the client/matter folders right
       within their existing Notes application.

    -  New 'Save' Document User Interface will help information workers save
       time by reducing the number of clicks to save content from within
       common authoring applications such as Microsoft Word and Excel, and by
       allowing for dynamically updated metadata. At the same time, new users
       of the system will require minimal training as the new user interface
       more closely mimics the native Microsoft Office process. This new
       feature will encourage end user adoption and will make deployments
       faster and less costly for customers, thus increasing their return on
