IBM WebSphere Portal 6.1 Beta - NEW AND UPDATED

Yes, you heard it right - IBM has released a NEW and UPDATED beta for WebSphere Portal 6.1; namely, with the following features: -
  • WebSphere Application Server (WAS) 7.0 (toleration level support as the underlying Application server)
  • IBM DB2 9.5
  • Oracle 11g R1
  • Windows Active Directory 2008 (excludes Application mode),
  • Firefox 3 browser
  • Apple Safari 3 browser
  • Opera 9.5 browser (on Vista OS)
  • Windows IIS 7
  • Apache HTTP Server 2.2 (for use with WAS 7 environments only)
The beta is available as a VMware image, which is rather nice :-)

There is also a new "drop" of the Rational Application Developer V7.5 beta as well.

Please see this page for details.
