It's hard to believe that it has been over 22 years since the first release of Lotus
Notes was shipped! In an era where software technology continues to evolve at
unprecedented speed, and software companies, products, and standards come and
go, it is a significant accomplishment that Lotus Notes is just as relevant today as it
was back in 1989.
Over the years, Lotus Notes has continued to embrace new technologies and open
standards, all the while providing compatibility for previous releases. Backed
by a strong and vibrant community of business partners and developers, Lotus
Notes social and real-time collaboration features allow you to build relationships,
and leverage your current investments, to create new opportunities for growth,
innovation, and productivity.
The latest release of IBM Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino continues to expand its
rich client ecosystem with forward-thinking, out-of-the-box features that are both
cost-effective and innovative, provides integrated collaboration on multiple devices,
and allows for rapid application development, while maintaining the highest quality
in the industry.
New to Notes/Domino 8.5.3 is a companion product entitlement via Notes Client
Access License (CAL). This allows entitlement to Lotus Connections Files and
Profiles for Lotus Notes which exposes customers to new technology that allows
them to become a social business.
This book will cover the following enhancements to IBM Lotus Notes and Domino
8.5.3 in the following areas:
Mail, Calendaring, Contacts, iNotes, and Designer.
