Final Notes Beta

When I’m not producing “Blair Witch Project” scary patches, I tend to follow the ins and outs of the Lotus community to see what they are doing with Eclipse. Well, recently IBM Lotus announced the last beta for the new Lotus Notes client that’s all built on Eclipse technology. I’ve been using the client internally for awhile now and always get giddy when I can launch Notes and get an OSGi console.

Why is this important for the Eclipse community? It will probably mark the largest deployment of Eclipse-based technology (definitely outside the developer space). This is a good sign that Eclipse is growing and has shed its image as only a tooling platform.

The only question is what’s next?

    Second Life, World of Warcraft, Google Earth, IBM’s 3D-browser. Did you know that your employer has prototyped a 3D-webbrowser?

    IBM will always do cool things, the question I’m trying to pose here is what is next for Eclipse ๐Ÿ™‚

    Carnegie Mellon builds a 3D-learning-IDE on top of Eclipse. They even got the SIMS-characters from Electronis Arts for that. 3-D should be the NEXT BIG THING for Eclipse. I’m eagerly waiting…

    Alice v3.0 is a Java IDE, based on eclipse
    Your students will see real Java (if you choose)
    Drag & Drop or type -> itโ€™s up to you!
