… the Notes 8.5 beta client on Mac OS X. I installed over the top of Notes 7.0.3 with no issues at all. None. It just did it. This is a first in the Poole household when it comes to Notes on the Mac :-) This is definitely the best-looking Notes client yet. My site database looks clean, the client is responsive, and I am impressed. Now to dig deep!
