The wait is over. If you are subscribed to Mac Guidera's blog, you probably know that this morning the annoucement letter for Lotus Connections 2.5 was made public in ibm.com.

A description of all the features is included in the announcement letter. So that I don't spoil the surprise, I'm not going to include the release date here, however, here's an excerpt of some of the new features:

  • Upload files and securely share them with others
