New book on Notes 8.5.1 released today

It was a mistake.  Amazon accidentally changed it to January 2011 and said it was new, but it was really released January 11, 2010.  I sent them a note and they have fixed it.  I would have noticed immediately, but I was reading it as 8.5.2.  Of course, with 8.5.1, it wouldn't be new. Duh!  Still looks like a good book.

I noticed that a new book on Notes/Domino was released today.This is not a developer's guide, but rather is subtitled "The Upgrader's Guide".  I hope they also mean upgrading from Exchange.  In any case, consider supporting the effort by getting your company to buy a copy.  I bet you can find at least one piece of information in there well worth the $43.  Below is the listing from the LS Sessions db Virtual Bookstore.

Interesting because I have had it on my bookshelf for about 6 months, maybe its a new revised expanded edition?

You were right (and Amazon was wrong). I sent them a note and they fixed it (very fast service, I have to say - it took about 15 minutes)
