I’m at LotuSphere for the moment, and there’s too much going on, so I have to make it short. I wanted to say I was really impressed by the announcement that Designer 8.5 will be built on the same Eclipse foundations as the current 8 Client. Meaning: real LotusScript debugging possibilities (comparable to Java in Eclipse), sorted LotusScript classes, real properties boxes (to me they looked like those in Dreamweaver, at the bottom of the page), ways of dragging and dropping fields on forms, Web 2.0 integration (things like type ahead, Web 2.0 enabled views, modern layouts).
A lot of other new features and stuff were demonstrated as well, but this thing only enlightens my day. Or it’s the jet lag speaking :-).
