New for 8.5.2: Lotus Notes Preloader
Ok I admit it, I'm a bit behind the 8.5.2 Gold Release Bandwagon. I've played about a bit with the DP releases (and kept my mouth shut like I'm supposed to); but I haven't actually had the chance to install / play with the Gold release until this morning.
Something really cool about this release is the Lotus Notes Preloader, and the fact that during install you are asked whether or not you want to Launch parts of Notes when the operating system starts to enable faster Notes startup.
Many other applications / tools / suites have, for years now, preloaded portions of themselves into memory at OS startup in order to allow themselves to launch quickly when the user needs them. The fact that IBM is just now doing this for Notes is very cool -but is in itself not really (at least IMHO) that big of a deal.
In case you missed it, allow me to point out the very important thing:
During install you are asked whether or not you want to Launch parts of Notes when the operating system starts to enable faster Notes startup.
That, my friends, is totally awesome.-Devin
