I've been slowly teasing this out as we near the finish line, but we now have a launch date and activities set up.
Unless something last minute changes, our planned announce/ship date for the Notes/Domino 8.5.3 family is Tuesday, 4 October 2011. We will have new news at the time of launch, so stay tuned for that.
