Lotus posted its first public beta of the next version of its Notes and Domino groupware software products, code-named Rnext. The company said Tuesday that it posted the beta version of the new product on its Web site for people to download, use and provide feedback to the Cambridge, Mass.-based IBM subsidiary.
Notes and Domino are the core of Lotus' messaging and collaboration product line, which includes applications such as Lotus Sametime, QuickPlace, iNotes Web Access and Mobile Notes. They are also closely integrated with IBM software technologies such as WebSphere, DB2 and Tivoli management software. Final pricing and availability of Notes and Domino Rnext will be announced at a later date.
