There were a number of announcements from the opening day of IBM Connect 2013.
With the release of the beta version of IBM Notes 9 earlier in December 2012 IBM have announced that the release date for the finished product is the end of March 2013! That's not far away.
Have you tried the beta? Do you need help with installation or configuration?
