IBM has released the new and final version of Lotus Notes and Domino 6.5.6. Version 6.5.6 is the last maintenance version released for the 6.5 code stream.
The English version can be accessed via Passport Advantage. Translated versions for the 11 ‘main languages’ will become available by the end of April whereas the other localisations need to wait until mid June. Information to solved bugs and fixes is listed in the fix list provided by IBM.
The next official announcement will most probably be the end of life (EOL) and end of support (EOS) information later this or early next year. (note: this is only an educated guess)
At the end of this month IBM will as well terminate the technical support for Lotus Notes and Domino Version 6.0.x. Sametime 3.1 will follow close behind with end of support being scheduled for 30 September 2007. More details about the life cycle of IBM Lotus products are listed on the Lotus product life cycle page.
