IBM Notes 9 on the Mac - it's lovely ….

Following many others in my network, I've taken the plunge and updated my Mac to run IBM Notes 9, replacing IBM Lotus Notes 8.5.4 CD5.
  • Activity streams: allow you to view and take action quickly on content and events
  • Embedded Experiences: allow you to access business critical actions from other applications without leaving your email. This brings collaboration in-context and results in tighter integration across iNotes, Connections, Notes, app dev (XPages), and 3rd-party products and services
  • Contemporary user interface, simpler navigation, easier to locate information both in Notes and iNotes
  • IBM Notes Browser Plug-in: allows rapid delivery of IBM Notes Social Edition applications to the web
  • Incorporation of a social application container, based on the OpenSocial standard, which provides for development of a reusable set of "gadgets" from both IBM and third parties
  • Inclusion of the XPages Extension Library which greatly improves developer productivity when building collaborative workflow driven applications for web, mobile web and Notes
  • Domino Designer provides a new home page, editor enhancements and a server-side JavaScript debugger for use with XPages
  • Enhancements to Domino REST services and new Calendaring and Scheduling APIs
  • Domino integration: SAML, OAuth
  • Notes Traveler: Windows Phone 7.5/8; BlackBerry 10 BES support; IBM i Server
It's early days, but it's looking very nice.
