Hannover by Jeff Eisen

July 24th, 2006

Jeff Eisen has posted a great technical introduction to the next major release of Lotus Notes (code name "Hannover").

To summarize, here are the main points from the introduction:

  • Hannover refers to the Notes client. The Domino server that will be released with Hannover is code-named "Domino Next".
  • Hannover will most certainly be known as Lotus Notes 8.0 when officially released.
  • Hannover is based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform - more precisely on a common platform titled Lotus Expeditor. The Lotus Expeditor platform is also being used for the new Lotus Sametime 7.5.
  • Being based on Eclipse means that Eclipse developers can build Notes applications
  • And finally, there will still be a "traditional" technology non-Eclipse version of the Notes client delivered as part of the Hannover release.

You have probably heard all of this before but it is new to me that the Hannover release will include a standard Notes client (i.e. not based on Eclipse).
