Most-frequently asked question this week -- when are the language versions of Notes/Domino 8.5.3 coming?
IBM doesn't pre-announce the release dates for a variety of reasons. The best available information I have, though, may help with planning.
We are expecting the first group of languages - Chinese (simplified/traditional), Korean, Japanese, German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Spanish - around the second week of November, 2011.
The second group of languages - Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish - are expected around mid-December, 2011.
The remainder of the languages are then expected after that...date still TBD but consistent with prior releases.
