Over at LotusUserGroup.org there is an excellent podcast from Mike Rhodin. Recorded just before the launch of Sametime 7.5 it does contain some useful information:
- IBM and LotusUserGroup.org are planning launch webcasts and Events.
- AOL will be offering clearing house services for SIP/SIP connections between organisations without any additional licence fee.
- When Notes 8 (Hannover) is shipped the FULL Sametime Connect client functionality will ship with the product [as both products are eclipse based it is much easier to paste functionality from one product to another].
That last bullet point is excellent news and should reduce the desktop footprint and potentially simplify support.
