Domino 8.5 Beta 1 available now

As Ed Brill pointed out on his blog. the beta 1 of Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 is now available. Of not is that Designer is now delivered on the Eclipse platform. I have not looked yet, but I hope that this will also be delivered on the Linux platform. I'm also hoping that it use the code editor engine of Eclipse rather than the old one from Designer. The Eclipse code formatting is far superior, but designer has always been faster. It never ceases to amaze me just how fast you can build an application with Domino Designer, but since working with Eclipse/RAD/RSA over the years, I'm used to working with a better code formatter than designer.

I'll give it a try, and blog later.
