IBM Sametime Limited Use 9 release for IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 customers

There has been a lot of discussion about the Sametime Limited use for Notes 9 already before Sametime 9 shipped.
But with Sametime 9 there was more confusion.

IBM published a technote which will be updated as soon there are news.
The following content is already great news for customers.
It wasn't the best timing between the different teams but it sounds like they have sorted it out :-)

Stay tuned for updates.

Here is the link --> http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21654435

And the current content.

Abstract

This technote contains information about IBM Sametime Limited Use 9 release for IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 customers.
Content

On September 10th 2013, IBM Sametime 9 was released and IBM Sametime 8.5.x was withdrawn from market. Current IBM customers with an entitlement to IBM Notes/Domino that do not have a separate full entitlement to IBM Sametime are entitled to a limited use version of IBM Sametime that is bundled with Notes/Domino. That entitlement continues with IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 which was released on October 29th 2013.

IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 currently includes IBM Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1. IBM intends to make available an IBM Sametime Limited Use 9 release for IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 customers on the IBM Passport Advantage website. This will provide the functional equivalent of IBM Sametime Entry 8.5.x. This update will be provided as soon as possible - further details on the availability date will be posted to this technote when available.

IBM Notes/Domino 9 customers who own a independent entitlement to IBM Sametime 9 can update their embedded Sametime today from their Passport Advantage downloads.

It was about time. Now there is still the "Lotus Web Conferencing" SKU that entitles only to 8.5.2
