    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.

    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)

    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.

  1. 15  Josh  |

    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.
