Sametime 7.5

Ed Brill posts about a public demo of Lotus Sametime 7.5.

This is beta code, not feature complete, things are going to change before release and the back-end server isn't guaranteed to be up 24/7, but it's still worth taking a look.

I am a big fan of IBM Community Tools (ICT) - which is the internal tool that Sametime 7.5 is heavily influence by.... good to see it'll soon escape into the wider world.

Definitely agree with this. I too have been using ICT for several years inside IBM and it's exciting to see a derivative of it getting released externally.

People who come to visit us inside IBM and see it on our desktops are always asking where they can get it.

Richard Brown said...

Indeed. I particularly like the integration with the corporate directory (BluePages) and the extensibility (plugin) support.

I too was using ICT when working for IBM as a contractor and it is a really powerful tool!
BTW do you know if ICT and ST 7.5 plugins are compatible?
