The next major release of the Lotus Notes client is version 7, due to ship in the third quarter of 2005. The major release beyond that, code-named "Hannover" (likely to become generally available in the first half of 2007), will improve core Notes capabilities and deliver innovations based on IBM Workplace Client Technology. Hannover will be a superset of the IBM Workplace Managed Client, and IBM will try to transform it from a client specifically for Domino applications into a client for composite applications that draw on both Domino and non-Domino data and application logic.
IBM has limited distribution rights for this positive and optimistic report.  Can also be accessed/purchased on the Forrester website.
