1. Future Plans for Domino V!0 and Beyond Revealed

Last week a group of customers and partners converged on HCL's labs in Chelmsford, MA to learn more about Domino V10 and all the new stuff. I was lucky enough to also attend. Who is HCL? That is the eight billion dollar company that is partnering with IBM on the future of Notes, Domino, and Sametime. They have done this before with other IBM software products.

A few thoughts... first and foremost, the excitement among the HCL employees is amazing. Many of them were formerly working on the products at IBM and had quite a few great ideas that were unable to reach the light of day at IBM. They are rapidly innovating and developing and have some great plans for the future well beyond Domino V10. You hopefully have already heard about Nomad, that is the Notes client running on an iPad. This is the full Notes client, LotusScript and all that runs natively on an iPad. Need I say more? But, what about a new Domino query language that blows away full text indexing? The Domino General Query Facility will rapidly search through summary data (not rich text) using view indexes when able at the core C level. This is very fast and powerful and will be available via a command line and the LotusScript, Java, and Node.js apis. Node.js? Yes, now all the people in your company developing Node.js applications can tie right into Domino data. This is a completely new way to develop Domino applications using the technologies many corporate web developers are using now to build very scalable, high performance applications.

The enthusiasm was quite contagious and all the attendees were very stoked at the end of our two days. There is more to talk about but can't just yet. Stay tuned for the public beta of Domino V10 and Nomad and all the other cool stuff that is planned, including Domino V11 and beyond!!!

Below are some links to other attendee's comments on their blogs.

3. New Site to Submit New Domino Functionality Requests

IBM has rolled out a new site for the community to submit ideas for future releases of Domino. IBM encourages everyone to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.
