Notes 8 Released

IBM has now launched a triumverate of new products. Lotus Notes/Domino 8 (aka Hannover), Quickr, and Connections. Ed Brill posted the news on his site yesterday ( Notes 8 was made available to the partners yesterday, and when I went to the site to download another product, the site seemed inundated, and I could not get in until late yesterday. I expect this release is will put Lotus back on the map, and hopefully back in the good graces of the user community, and at least some of the technology magazine editors. It certainly is vast improvement over previous releases.

I ran it on Windows XP and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (dual boot) for a few months and although I found several minor issues with the beta, it was quite pleasant to use.
