Users can download and try out beta versions of IBM’s Lotus Notes and Domino 8 next-generation e-mail and collaboration platforms.

The full commercial versions of the products are expected by mid-2007. The open beta program gives users a peek at a redesigned interface with time-saving features such as the ability to quickly view important e-mails by grouping them into conversation threads.

The product also lets users edit spreadsheets, word-processed documents and presentations, and web and file searches without leaving the inbox.

Ken Bisconti, vice-president of Lotus messaging and collaboration, said, "Lotus Notes and Domino 8 delivers a high-performance work environment that natively links to other Lotus software components, such as social software, collaborative content management, and unified communications and collaboration. This version allows developers to build a new class of Web 2.0 solutions and taps into the latest technologies from IBM Research."
