Sametime and Yahoo! federation now available

You can now use Lotus Sametime Gateway to connect to Yahoo! Messenger users (in addition to the AOL and Google connectivity available already).

You will need to install service pack 1 for the gateway.  More details and the download are available here:  Installing Lotus Sametime Gateway 7.5 Service Pack 1

The Lotus Sametime Gateway 7.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is a recommended release that extends Lotus Sametime Gateway to allow Sametime users to exchange instant messaging and presence information with the Yahoo! Messenger community. In addition to connections to the AOL Instant Messenger and Google Talk communities, users can now use the Sametime Connect client to exchange instant messages with Yahoo! Messenger users.

Update (1/17):As of right now, SP1 for the gateway is only available on the download page linked to above; it should be posted on Passport next week.
