IBM draws road map for Lotus collaboration

IBM announced that it plans to ship
Lotus Notes and Domino 8.0.1 in
February with several updates.
Included in 8.0.1 is a Web 2.0 feature
' My Widgets ' that can be used to
execute actions such as retrieving
real-time flight arrival information
simply by clicking on a flight number
in an e-mail message. This is accomplished
through a new technology
called Live Text that can identify patterns
and phrases and associate
them with an appropriate widget.
Also planned for delivery with Lotus
Domino 8.0.1 is IBM Lotus Notes
Traveler, which will provide automatic,
real-time wireless replication of
e-mail messages including attachments,
calendar, contacts, personal
journals and the task list for
Microsoft Windows Mobile devices.
New features planned for IBM Lotus
Domino Designer 8.5 include support
for Asynchronous JavaScript and
Extensible Markup Language, style
sheets and Really Simple
Syndication or ATOM feeds. IBM is
also introducing a new e-mail security
appliance called IBM Lotus
Protector for Mail Security, an
antivirus and anti-spam solution
based on the IBM Proventia Network
Mail Security System.
