Welcome back to the real world Mary Beth! I'm glad you had a chance to get away from it all to relax and decompress. Everyone needs that now and then. I'm jealous, because we're still digging out of a major snow storm we had in the Midwest. We never lost our electricity though, so I've been able to keep up on the rumors regarding the anticipate release of the Notes 8 Public Beta. From what I've heard, it sounds like it's *very* close. Anything you can share with us as far as a date?

It would be cool if IBM would host a Notes and Domino update server, where users would get daily patches automatically into their Notes/Domino. For beta versions this would be also quite useful, as people wouldn't have to wait for a public beta, but could get development updates every day.

@Mika - Ummmm... you don't want the daily builds. Trust me. :-)

 
@Randy - Don't take this personally, because it's mostly a reaction to the number of people that keep asking for a date. What part of "I have downloaded the most recent build and I'm evaluating it on behalf of users such as yourself" isn't clear? They're still trying to identify whether the build is good enough for public release. Until they know what build is "the one" a date is literally impossible. Once they know a build is good enough, it'll take about a week to push it through legal and administrative channels so that the world can download it.

@Nathan - What is so wrong with Randy asking 'Anything you can share with us as far as a date?' - in fact, I don't see what is wrong with ANYONE asking for a date. Its just a question, which doesn't need such a harsh response from you.

Nathan, I'd take a daily build gladly. Probably have to finish debugging it myself, obviously this might take a weekend, even two...

 
But seriously, this first beta is the one the analysts and bloggers across the web will be picking to pieces; I'd rather wait for something really solid with as many of the new features implemented as possible, to maximise the impact when it arrives.
 
The industry won't notice a beta that's a few weeks later than expected, but you can be sure the pundits will notice a beta that's not as feature-rich or polished as expected.

MB,

 
Glad to hear you enjoyed Hanna. Did you like the red sand beach?
 
Just remember to release no product before its time:DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!
 
Keep up the great work,Bob

It would've been a lot better had a public beta date not been promised for mid-February at LotusSphere. I understand the excitment and the rush to get the word out but it has created a lot of frustration (in lieu of a better word) within the Notes community.

 
But as others have said...it is better to get it right the first time otherwise you will be eaten alive.
