Hannover

Mary Beth Raven, the lead product designer for Hannover (the redesign of Lotus Notes), has posted some new screenshots of the Hannover beta. I’ve been doing some test driving myself lately and it’s just crazy to see Eclipse everywhere (it’s bundles all the way down!). I hope things like Hannover will prove to people that you don’t have to look like Eclipse to be an Eclipse-based application.

Hannover may be the biggest deployment of an RCP application to normal end users, well, besides those mp3 leeching college students using Azureus (yes, I know it’s an SWT-based application only).

    The question is, will there ever be a tutorial how a non IBM developer could do an equal design change for an RCP?

    Does it use the standard Expeditor UI style? If so, then anything built on Expeditor will have that look. IBM seems to be positioning Expeditor as a .net alternatvie so you should be able to have at it soon.

    I’ve got a picture of Notes 8 – sorry Hannover – out in the wild!

    Have to agree, it doesn’t look (or feel for that matter) much like Eclipse at all! Kudos!
