eWeek takes a look at Notes/Domino 8.0.2:

But the application I'm speaking of has been doing most of these things since the early 1990s; in fact, in many ways it's the forefather of the modern Web 2.0 applications. The application I'm talking about is Lotus Notes. While some may think of Notes as an application of the past, it is still a popular and often-used messaging and collaboration system, especially in large enterprises. ...

With Lotus Notes and Domino 8.0.2, it's clear that IBM isn't content to simply milk a legacy application with minor upgrades. This release of the Lotus collaboration platform includes a significantly upgraded client application, open customization and development options, and many links to Web 2.0-style collaboration and integration. ...

The biggest and most obvious new feature of this release is the Lotus Notes desktop client. It is now based on the Eclipse framework (though it is not itself an Eclipse application), which makes it possible to integrate it with a wide array of applications and widgets. ...

A very welcome new feature in the mail client makes it possible to view an entire group of e-mail conversations in a single thread. Notes also has addressed some long standing issues, including the lack of message recall. In addition, the out-of-office reminders have also been improved.
Nice review -- one that summarizes the ND8 release quite effectively.
