Not long ago I started work on a prank. The idea was a mock-up screenshot of a Notes 8 beta that I would say I'd somehow managed to get my hands on. I soon got bored of messing about in Fireworks and got no further than the image below (click to enlarge):
Beyond hoping that it would be funny to wind you all up there was a message in there too - this is how it should/could look. It's still rough round the edges and I never got round to adding the features I'd like to see, but the idea's there.
Looks good don't it!?
Of course looks aren't everything. What will the new features be for the developer? Will they have gotten rid of all the issues? Making it look nice is a step in the right direction. But, if there's anything like the same number of annoyances then it will continue to be a thorn in my side. If only they would listen/talk to me. I could really help them make the Designer an all-round decent tool. In fact I'm sure we could all help.
So, now they've announced "Hannover", am I any less confused about the future of Lotus software? No! I've still got no idea what's going on and remain blissfully ignorant, while beavering on with Notes 6.0...
