Just as Lotus Workplace Designer 2.6 was bundled with Workplace Services Express 2.6, Lotus Component Designer is bundled with WebSphere Portal Express 6 . And, I see that the trial version of LCD is now showing up in what I think is it's rightful place - the Portal Zone on developerWorks. YEA!
(So, just when you thought things might be slowing down after Lotusphere...guess what? We're as busy as ever! Thus, the postings have not been forthcoming. Sorry. I will leave you with this interesting link to Jeff Eisen's blog where he put a screen shot of some improvements to the RSS Feed feature in Notes 8. We had been lobbying for some improvements, on behalf of our users, of course.)
