Hey guys i think you have done a great job with the 8.5 version. Looking forward to test the A/V using the browser later on ....

You all have a god christmas now.

Nice to see this is finally out - now if only those of use with Limited Use / Entry Licenses had it showing in Passport Advantage?
Only the old 8.0.2 is available at the moment?

Just attended the Sunday session on Sametime 8.5 and I have to admit I was totally floored:
- Enormous complexity (minimum 6 servers, more if you want to separate internal and DMZ)
- no A/V from the browser. That to me is the killer. Who can distribute Sametime clients to external attendees in advance of a meeting ? I can barely get them to put the JRE.

So for us, we will upgrade to Sametime 8.5 classic and keep the meetings there until we found a "cloud" solution at which point we will only keep the communities (and stop paying for sametime licenses).

Was excited to see the new version and, now I'm kind of disapointed to see that finally you make Sametime for domino a "nightmare"... Now it's not only one server that we need but at least 4 servers. Combine Lotus domino+ Websphere+ DB2 ... for only a chat system and a meeting tool!?
Since 3 days I'm fighting with the upgrade doc. Hope I will see a real advantage to use it because right now I can told you that the upgrade process is not clear and not up to date (Convert the domino to ldap by copying manually files who doesn't exist....).

Maybe I will change my mind when the upgrade will be finish, and everything will works correctly...
hope so.

The complexity required for a Sametime Entry install is insane -
especially as it won't install against a Domino 8.5.1 server.
Highly disappointed - this type of fragmentation makes it harder to fight the Domino / Notes detractors!
