Lotus Domino Designer, the development application used to create Lotus Notes and Domino applications, will not be updated in its next major revision and as a result, development will crease,
Lotus Development Corp. has confirmed.
The decision, which has been communicated to specific developers in the last few days, is due to “little demand by developers,” a company spokesperson told MacCentral Thursday. “The decision was a difficult one, but simply a balanced business decision based on demand.”
Domino Designer is an open, integrated Web application development environment that enables developers to build and deploy secure e-business applications that connect enterprise data with strategic processes. Lotus has supported Mac developers with regard to Domino since early 1993.
Lotus emphasized that the decision has no affect on its Lotus Notes application, which is on schedule for total Mac OS X support later this year.
