Changes from Lotus Notes 5.1 to 6.5.1

Our company recently upgraded Lotus Notes from 5.1 to 6.5.1, the problem is I cannot find any references books noting the changes from 5.1 to 6.5.1. Also, do you know of any reference books for users not administrators?
The reference section for Domino is thin, at best. I haven't seen any 6.5 admin books as of yet.

As for changes, they are numerous. Many are in the background, but items such as policies, enhanced transactional logging, presence awareness, enhanced DWA (iNotes), server based rules, roaming users and all of the aesthetic enhancements make for a greatly enhanced product.


I thought this response was totally inadequate -- there are many articles on the changes requested -- you could at least point the person in the right direction.
