Okay, I guess this makes the 47th article for Intranet Journal. 🙂
Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.1 Coming Soon gives you a preview of some of the features and changes you can expect when Notes and Domino 8.5.1 ship in October. I really believe that this is what most businesses will end up with as a gold release for some time to come. I’ve been using the beta for a couple months, and it’s very good. So check out the preview, and put in front of the noses of people who make your upgrade decisions!
When Notes 8.0 was released, it was a beautiful update to a very stale looking client. It looked great, and had features users had been clamoring for, but unfortunately it was slow. With each point release since, the speed has gotten better, but with 8.5.1 is really feels like they finally got it right. The client uses less memory than it did in 8.5, so there’s more left for other system processes. In addition, everything from startup, to switching between apps is much faster. Simply upgrading a user to 8.5.1 should really alleviate previous speed issues.
