Notes/Domino 8 was released on March 10th. This information is updated daily, based on words from IBM like: "A beta version of Lotus Notes 8 is currently planned to be made available to the public starting this February." and hear-sayings like: "sometime mid-February 2007". There is also an official press release about it.Be prepared to update your production workstations, since this will be a very stable release, as we saw already on R6 and R7 Beta 1 releases. Anyhow, it beats any R5 or R6 client in bugfreeness, as there are already thousands of bugs fixed since R5. Plus that R5 has not been supported for long time ago, and R6 support also ends in the coming months.Your work motivation and productivity will be raised to new heights, and you have the chance to report bugs to the new Notes 8 Beta Forum when it comes out simultaneously with the Client Release, and improve this product even more when it goes Gold. I want a better Notes 8, you want it, and everyone else wants it too!
