Not only can you select what files will open in Lotus Symphony by default (which was in 1.0), you can tell Lotus Symphony to create Microsoft Office file formats (.doc, .xls, .ppt) when you create new files in Lotus Symphony. We need more granularity here, but this is a great step forward!

    The last point on being able to tell Symphony what file format to use for saving documents was in Symphony V1.0 and is also in the Notes 8.0.2 Std client.

    I know Dec, but it's worth a special mention as it was FIXED :-)

    John,

    Symphony 1.0 included the same two performance options, Moderate and High. So there are no new options there for Symphony 1.1 though. Regardless, I am quite pleased with this 1.1 release over the previous.
