Ed, a great deal of this seems to stem from the presumed ability to locate and classify similar content. Its a neat idea, but one that we found was harder than it looks with KDS.
It will be interesting to watch progress.
Cool stuff. I have a home-grown version that, while not nearly as slick as the above, does show me:
- related e-mails
- related contacts with IM-readiness, sorted by relevance
- related personal and public documents
- associated Notes databases (since I am developing :)
- the "group calendar" style mini-view of my day's calendar
all on one framed window, based on my active task (which allows me to track my time as well).
I do this stuff mainly with private folders.
I noticed the lack of a bookmark bar in your screenshots . . . what happened to it? Is there a feature that is taking its place?
Very cool stuff. Its getting harder and harder to discern the differences between Domino and Workplace. I think that you have to be closer than 10 feet away now to tell them apart.
@3 You'd see that on the "welcome" tab, I believe.
No words needed, just waiting.......
For something this gorgeous, I'd be willing to abandon my beloved gray textured workspace and use bookmarks.
Question: is that pie chart actually generated from Notes documents, or is it a graphic that was embedded in a document?
What does the new "Designer" look like? Being a developer, that's what I see a hundred times more than the end user UI, which is what these shots appear to be. (grin) This is quite a makeover, and a golden opportunity to toss a lot of "baggage" that Designer seems to be stuck with. Like bookmarks! (wink)
I notice none of the panels are obviously tear-off, or "floatable". Are they stuck in that same window just like R4? It would be *very* cool to be able to take that cluttery set of cramped little panels and move them off the main content window. Same for the new "Designer", only more so! (chuckle)
Shoulda read further. Linux client?? Spectacular!!
Thanks alot Ed, now I am not gonna switch :)
I just want to say this ... yes, finally!
Looks pretty neat to me, hopefully the perspectives/views will be made highly customizable.
Right now it looks like IBM put some sort of different UI-Template over the IBM Workplace client ;-)
It would also be nice if Lotus (IBM) would think of improving the user interface compared to past Notes Versions 5.x & 6.x. e.g. like creating more context menus and adding more drag&drop functionality in order to improve the usability of Notes.
Usability always seemed to be a huge hurdle for the Lotus Notes Dev Team, don't you agree ?
Anyway it will be quite interesting to watch the development progress on this Client...
And of course, this is the Rich Client Technology Plug-In Version, right ... right ... right ??? (please)
COOL, I think it should be shown on JavaOne.
No this is not the Rich Client Technology Plug-In version.
These are the screen shots for next release of Notes coming out after 1 or 2 yrs.
Fred, you could do that in R3 back in the last century.
