Eight oh Tuesday

August 21 2008

Since several have noticed that the Lotus Notes/Domino 8.0.2 build is complete, it's probably time to tell you when you can get it.  

Official eGA (electronic general availability) is scheduled for Tuesday, August 26, 2008 in English.  The first language pack release ("Group 1 and 2a + Catalan") will be 24 September, and the remaining languages ("Group 2b +3") will be 26 November.

The main improvements in 8.0.2 are:

  • Significant improvement to Notes 8 launch/load time -- <30 seconds on typical hardware for a cold start, far faster for a warm start, and an optimized startup sequence
  • Major reduction in memory footprint of the Notes 8 client -- 20%+
  • Inclusion of Office 2007 file viewers in the Notes client
  • iNotes "Ultralite" (new screen shots at that URL), an optimized version of Domino Web Access iNotes that supports the Apple iPhone's Safari browser
  • Performance improvements for Domino on System i
