Here is a short summary
- 8.5.1 will be available Monday 12th October
- Domino Designer Client will now be FREE
- Client Access Licence (CAL) has been simplified basically an Enterprise CAL and a Messaging CAL
We also wanted to address the changing nature of client access. For too long, we have asked you as customers to decide whether a particular user is a "Notes user" or a "browser user" or a "mobile user". We thought it might just make more sense, given the trend towards ubiquitous access, if an end-user became a "Domino user", with the choice of tools and interfaces as needed.
- An additional feature is the inclusion of the Lotus Mobile Connect client license in the Lotus Domino Enterprise Client Access License.
That concludes my three-part introduction to Notes/Domino 8.5.1 -- and I haven't even talked about the technology yet, from the iPhone support in Traveler to the new Eclipse Lotuscript Editor to the Notes UI improvements to the further enhancements in DAOS.
