While I've been documenting the progress on Notes 8.0.2 memory and performance all throughout beta, now that the release is out, you can all see the results.  The tweets and blog posts today have been mostly positive.  Be sure to post issues in the Notes/Domino 8 forum or open support incidents... it seems that a couple have been reported related to upgrade (versus clean install...not that you should have to clean install, but it seems to be where there have been a few reports this morning).

At any rate,the big question is, is it faster?  And from what I've read, the answer is resoundingly "yes".  Some have wondered why, or if so, why wasn't this optimization done sooner?  We had an internal discussion of the best way to present these improvements to you as customers and partners...and I advocated for the honest and direct approach.  You need to know that it's better in 8.0.2, and likewise in 8.5, and that you'll see the results of our work immediately.

In the spirit of open disclosure, then, Lotus Support has published a technote highlighting what work was done for Notes 8.0.2 performance:

With the many pieces of Notes, this has been a resource-intensive task, but one that is well worth it to give our clients the best possible experience. This information is given in an effort to help you better understand the kinds of things that we have been working on. The bottom line is that we have looked into many areas where performance can be improved and will present a faster experience in Notes 8.0.2 and Notes 8.5 compared to Notes 8.0 and 8.0.1.
