|IBM does not seem so optimistic about the future of Lotus Notes and Domino|
IBM has a few boring terms when dealing with customer requests.
"The product works as designed" is one of them or "There are no plans for a fix in the current release".
Recently IBM seems to be more cautious about their statements.
More and more IBM support requests say
The problem will be fixed in a future release if there is one.
For example here https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO58441.
Now I don't know how this reads in other countries but for me this is an extremely defensive statement that questions the future of a product. Now as 8.5.3 is on its way and at least the next major release has already been confirmed I really don't understand why IBM makes such irritating statements without any reason.
