Subject: Sablime® and nmake Software Decommission Communication

We would like to inform you of Nokia's intention to decommission the Sablime® and nmake software at the end of the 2018 calendar year.

Sablime® is a configuration management system providing integrated version control and change management of software artifacts such as source files and documentation.

nmake Product Builder is a "make" tool developed by Bell Labs, used to automate construction of program executables and other components from source code and other resources.

As a consequence of the decommissioning of Sablime® and nmake, support from Nokia will not be available after January 1, 2019. If you desire to continue to use this software beyond your current license expiration date, we will, if requested, issue generic license keys to you that will be active through 12/31/2050. While there is no cost for these keys, you must agree that you understand that support will no longer be provided by Nokia.

Please send your requests for license keys to: You can also send any questions in relation to the Sablime® and nmake decommissioning to:
