IBM Lotus Notes & Domino 8 released

August 17 2007


As you probably can tell, IBM Lotus Notes & Domino 8.0.0 has been released to the public. Congratulations to everyone at IBM and especially to the development team that has put their sweat and tears into making this release the best and biggest Notes release ever.

Below is a great video demo of the new Notes 8 client:

You can get screenshots and product logos over at the blog of Alan Lepofsky .

This release has a lot of attachment and emotion for me. My first involvement with this release goes all the way back to the Software Design Review (SDR) in October of 2005. I then was on bi-weekly conference calls for the Design Partner program for almost 18 months. PSC has been building Composite Applications for over a year and the blog server that hosts this blog and all of the IBM blogs we host has been running a version of Domino 8 for since before Lotusphere 2007.

Starting today, my production Notes client is now 8.0.0. I will be moving all of my Notes 7.X development and testing to VM images. Time to have some fun :-)
