I spent some time since returning home last night looking at some of the early feedback on Notes/Domino 8.0.1. In addition to 70+ comments here, bloggers have been covering some of their initial reactions. They include:
- Denny Russell is happy to find the "open in designer" right click on tab option is back.
- Warren Elsmore thinks that My Widgets are "cooooool".
- Julian Buss has already created a LiveText widget for application integration.
- Mikkel Heisterberg enabled My Widgets. Dan King commented there that he couldn't find the My Widgets documentation. Alan Lepofsky posted links to the My Widgets documentation.
- Speaking of Alan Lepofsky, Notes 8.0.1 has improved the way he works.
- Scott Cochrane notes that the startup time for the 8.0.1 client is "vastly improved" -- I would be interested if others are seeing this as well.
- And three updates since posting...
- Nathan Freeman thinks gadgets are important for Notes customers.
- Bruce Elgort caved in (he's busy with a Macbook Air) and is ready to roll with Notes 8 standard.
- Chris Miller doesn't think users will get any work done due to widgets...hmm, serious or no, Mr. Miller?
Great to see the excitement -- I'm looking for Notes/Domino 8 deployment references, so if you're happily rolling out the new release, and can be considered for either an IBM internal or a public reference, let me know.
