One of the downsides to developing Notes client applications is that as a developer I am usually tied to using the same version of Notes/Designer that is deployed across the company.  This means I am unable to take advantage of many of the new features in Domino Designer until my company upgrades to a newwer version of Notes.  Even though some of the new features in designer are not specific to a pareticular version of Notes.  This is not the case for Web development.
 
My suggestion would be to have the deigner client capable of recognising the capabilities of each version of the Notes client so that it is possible to develop a Notes application for a specific version of Notes. The same would hold true for Web client development in which HTML, JavaScript could be validated for a specific browser etc.
 
Example:. It would be great if I could use the new Eclipse LotuScript browser when it becomes available before my company upgrades to that release of Notes.

To me, the title doesn't seem to reflect the content of the idea too well. But I like the idea of designing against a specific target platform.
2) Ben Poole1705 (22 Jul 2008)
I like this (although as Harkpabst mentions, I was expecting a different idea!) I would envisage this as being similar to the 'compiler compliance' settings you have in Eclipse on a per-project basis -- e.g. "this app is 6.5x-compliant"... "this app is 8.0.2-compliant"... and so on.
3) Denny Russell325 (22 Jul 2008)
I would love to see them separated (and the Admin client too.) I hate the fact that if one is busy, I have to wait to get into the other one.

A little bit like this idea, perhaps: { Link }

Sound idea
6) Christopher Baier450 (10 Jan 2009)
Several ideas in this one. I like the version-compliant-debugger/compiler idea.
I also like the idea of separating Designer/Notes processing thread--when one is busy, so is the other one.

Yes for @6
