This is a follow-up to Genii in a bottle: Improving Notes from the inside, Part 1, in which I show CoexEdit improving the editing experience in ND8.0.1 without any design changes. In this, I show off the redesigned, and very attractive, Discussion template which uses XPages and the Dojo editor in Notes/Domino 8.5.1 (beta 8). The focus for this redesign was in the web client, and a Notes client version redesign is being discussed by various people.
To give IBM credit, a lot of work has gone into this process, including some small, but much needed, fixes to the rich text to MIME to rich text conversions. Still, there is a fair amount of room for improvement, and this demo will show how CoexEdit will enhance the experience even further without any modification to the template or database. This is a completely untouched database created to show off the new discussion, and we keep the design template set to the new discussion template.
