I am excited about the entire product as the development team has worked hard to make all the enhancements requested by you, the customer. I am also, very eagerly, looking forward to your feedback for the "Notes Browser Plug-in", which is part of this beta. Encourage everyone to try this out. The announcement mentioned the plug-in as "IBM Notes Browser Plug-in: allows rapid delivery of IBM Notes Social Edition applications to the web". So please try and provide the feedback in the forum.
As we went into the Public Beta, we have made some changes to how you install this Notes Browser Plug-in. Prior to these changes, we had a separate installer for the Plug-in, and what it meant was that the user could either have Standard Client (or Basic) OR Notes Plug-in. We found that the users needed to gradually move to the plug-in, atleast those that are using Standard Client now, and will need to switch between the Standard Client, and iNotes/Browser Plug-in combination.
So as you download and try to install the standard client, we now provide you the following option:
selecting the "notes browser plug-in" option will install the add-ons into the Firefox & Internet Explorer browsers so you can work on your notes applications inside these browsers. Go ahead and try. All you need to do after the install is to bring up FF or IE, and type "notes:home" (make sure you are not running any notes client at this point - since we do not support running the 2 clients simultaneously).
