Computerworld runs a more comprehensive story about the Notes/Domino 8 public beta, quoting John Head, Nathan Freeman, and proud papa Chris Whisonant ...

"This is not your father's Notes," said Ken Bisconti, vice president of Lotus messaging and collaboration products at IBM. At the same time, he added, one of the long-time strengths of Notes -- its legendary backward-compatibility -- won't be compromised. Companies will still have "complete investment protection," Bisconti said. "All your old Notes apps will work." ...

"The inbox is totally rethought, and there's extensive improvements to every aspect of presentation and usability of mail and calendaring," said Freeman, who like Head has been using Notes 8 for the past six months and giving IBM feedback on the software. Lotus 911 has already deployed the new software to all of its own employees.
