Rocket Software is in the midst of a large project to rebrand U2 products as its own. While it's relatively easy to change the product names on the CDs and splash screens, it takes longer to update all the documentation, error messages, and installation paths, notes Susie Siegesmund, vice president and general manager of Rocket U2. As part of this project, on September 30, 2010, Rocket will remove old documentation from the Rocket website and replace it with the latest versions. Siegesmund suggests that anyone who wants to keep older versions of the documentation should download them before that date.
