More pre-Lotusphere coverage....

Attendees will get a sneak peek at some of the new features of Notes and Domino 8 with hands-on labs for customizing Notes, Web content publishing and dozens of other topics.

These new versions will be of great interest to corporate users, said Peter O'Kelly, an analyst with the Midvale, Utah-based Burton Group, and a technology research and advisory company.

"I think it will be the most significant release of Notes in the last 10 years," said O'Kelly. Prior to the Burton Group, O'Kelly led the product management of Notes R4 at IBM.

Notes 4.0 was a watershed release, and O'Kelly said that he expects Notes 8.0 will be one as well because both offer users a more modern user interface and increased functionality and power. ...

IBM now seems committed to developing new features and editions of its desktop and server products with ongoing support -- and customers are happy about that, said Chuck Connell, owner of CHC-3 Consulting in Woburn, Mass.

"Three or four years ago there was the fear that IBM [didn't] care about Domino or Notes any more," Connell said. "But now with a new release and sizeable support, I think we feel that they're really behind the products."
