Eclipse Lotus Sametime

IBM today released Eclipse Lotus Sametime 7.5.1, its Mac-compatible video chat software offering point-to-point video integrated with desktop applications on Mac as well as Linux systems. The free download includes Sametime Mobile, which is built on the Eclipse and allows users extend the environment with mobild devices such as RIM or Nokia. The trial period lasts for 90 days, and users can develop plug-ins using the Sametime Software Development Kit (SDK) to enhance or extend Sametime to suit personal needs. IBM Lotus Sametime requires Mac OS X 10.4.6 or later with at least 512MB of memory.

    Finally

    There are a lot of companies using Lotus Notes as their e-mail/collaboration platform. Macs were always second-class citizens there. With Notes 7, the client seems to finally be rather snappy (everything is relative, though) and more robust. Even so, we were still missing Sametime messaging, until now, that is. Looks like IBM finally brought reasonable parity between platforms.

    As for the 90-day demo, on 91st day, demo becomes full version and the transformation is completely transparent to the user (in other words, the 'demo' is actually the same as software you get on IBM's CDs when you buy Notes).
