So last week, Mike Rhodin made a commitment to announce the ship date for Notes 8 during his visit to Lotus Day in Japan on 31 July.

I checked with my colleagues in Japan, and Mike did indeed make such an announcement.  He announced that the Japanese version of Notes/Domino 8 will ship on 11 September 2007 (eGA).  I am still checking to see if he said anything about the English version.  Until I find an answer to that, I can't say anything other than, here we are in August, and we'll be shipping.  The target is earlier than the end of the month.  And the ND8 launch salestalk for IBMers and business partners is still scheduled for 14 August.

I have a couple more postings on the way in the next 24 hours, but then I'll be out on vacation for a bit.  Don't worry, I'll still be around, but Alan Lepofsky will be blogging away on this site while I'm gone.  I suppose that will only add to the rumour that we're one and the same person.  But I'll be on a beach in the sun and he won't... uh, thanks, Alan!
