SPR# DLIMBDWQXW – Fixed a problem where the Notes client would hang on exit when Replication on exit was enabled. This regression was introduced in 9.0.1 FP10.
SPR# JALAB6SRRH – If EnableThreeClicks ini is set to 1, user will be required to enter three clicks for opening attachments and URLs, as mandated by the EU. This option is off by default.

SPR# SSARBD4J84 – Fixed a problem in the Notes client where, if the Notes preference Open each document in new window has been set, the first window opened cannot be closed. This regression was introduced in 9.0.1 FP10.
SPR# KSOAB5MM66 – Fixed a problem with the Notes calendar where setting the body text to any proportionally spaced font then reopening the saved calendar entry would result in the body text having been changed toDefault Monospace font. This regression was introduced in 10.0.
SPR# SMEAB94AYW – Fixed a problem where the Notes client would hang when using a particular widget.

SPR# JCORBDBPYA – LotusScript JSONElement.value property truncates the LotusScript string when the value is greater than 64K. Fix provides for complete return of a JSONElement value string.
SPR# JCUSB9JL8B – DQL: Fixed a problem where DQL did not recognize a query that contained DBCS characters.
SPR# RDOLB9734S – Fixed a problem in Domino Designer where editing and saving LotusScript agents in would sometimes hangs when “Run in background client thread” was enabled.

SPR# KKHOBCGF8H – Fixed a problem where, when creating new replicas (where the target replica is a stub), if a corrupt folder note exists in the source database, replication might retry replicating the corrupt folder note and not complete. This regression was introduced in 10.0.
SPR# MNAA9K9ANA – Fixed a problem where Xpages documents would not show an inserted image if an attachment had been uploaded to the document. The MIME data type was not getting set to Content-Type:multipart/related
SPR# MSKABBZH3L – Fixed a problem where Adminp was failing trying to create replicas of large databases (250gb) on large disks (2TB). It would incorrectly state there was insufficient space.

SPR# PKURBBX6QK – Fixed a problem where ampersands contained in an LDAP filter attribute value were inadvertently being escaped in filters which were not being sent to IBM Directory Server LDAP. This fix causes the ampersand to be escaped only in filter attribute values being sent to an IBM Directory Server. This regression was introduced in 9.0.1 FP8.
SPR# RSTNB6GC7D – Fixed a problem where dbmt did not terminate when running with -range option and loaded at server startup. This was causing dbmt to not process databases when the next time the specified range came around.

Last week there was a problem when the Escape, CTRL + A keys have stopped working in applications mail and calendar ( Notes Client Eng 10.0.1 FP2, Windows 10) . In other applications, these keys and their combinations worked correctly. It was not possible to close documents by pressing the Esc key, I could not mark all documents with the Ctrl + A keys. I had to use Shift + Esc to close the document. In the Basic client (start via nlnotes.exe) everything worked correctly.
Workaround: If I deleted the “Workspace” directory in the DATA directory and restarted the Notes client, everything started again working.
We have completed the first month when HCL fully took over from IBM Collaboration software (Domino, Notes, Sametime, Connections …..). Information comes from all sides, we gain access to individual systems.
Everything is not going smoothly, but from my own experience I know that the people of each teams are trying to help. I wish everything was successful and thanks to all HCL people and customers for patience.
We get a lot of information, which is gradually updated, so I tried to prepare some interesting sources.
Release of Verse On-Premisees (VOP) 1.0.8 is scheduled on Q2. So what can we look forward to?
Support for IBM I Series
Ability to open a server side archive mail file – Link to archive appears in the folder panel. Control with INI parameterSupport for IBM I Series
Ability to display configured alternative name rather than primary names of users in the VOP user interface – This feature is controlled using policies
Rooms and resources are now part of ‘find available times’ – When searching for available times, rooms and resources will be displayed in the react calendar
Repeat dates are now shown to users, and others – Users can now see repeat dates displayed in the meetings
Changed font in VOP to use pt rather than px in order to match Notes and iNotes fonts – VOP font size now matches Notes and iNotes
GA the ability to view VOP on a mobile web browser – VOP on Mobile web browser was introduced in VOP 1.0.7 as preview
Ability to respond to an encrypted calendar invitation with an encrypted response – Now users can respond to a calendar invitation that is encrypted and the response is encrypted
Moved Security preferences from iNotes to Verse (Dependent on FP changes that will likely be in Domino 10.0.1 FP2) They are added to the Security settings section of the Mail and Calendar Settings page. Actions include: – Change internet password – Upload Notes ID to the user’s mail file – Change Notes password – Sync Notes ID with the ID vault – View info about the Notes ID – Delete the Notes ID from the user’s mail file – Export/Download the Notes ID from the mail file
What about VOP Next?

Move more preferences from iNotes
Ability to manage Mail Rules
Use Picture URL from user’s Domino Directory document for user avatars in Vese UI
Color Coding for messages
Source: HCL presentation: “Best Practices for Maximizing your Investment in Verse on Premises (VOP)” – Barry Rosen (Director of Product Management Digital Solutions)
SUTOL Symposium in Prague took place a week after the successful Engage conference in Brussels. This spring event, which is not as technically focused as the autumn SUTOL conference, has been held regularly for 25 years (first organized by Lotus, IBM and SUTOL in the last few years), which is almost unbelievable.
One era is over (IBM) and another is starting because HCL Digital Solutions has become the main partner of the event. Thanks.
The SUTOL Symposium is specific in that most presentations are exclusively in Czech (except for the opening keynote). However, the event was attended by over 100 people. This is a very beautiful number in such a small region.
For this occasion, everyone received a yellow t-shirt and we could make a unique group photo of the “big yellow family”.
A great pleasure was the opening keynote personally presented by Richard Jefts. Richard is the Vice President and General Manager of HCL’s Collaborative Workflow Platform business. As always, it was an interesting presentation with clear goals that HCL had set and fulfilled at a fast pace. He showed plans for the future.
Also arrived Uffe Sorensen (Global Director of DS Strategy at HCL Software). He was not here for the first time. This time as a member of the HCL team.
As always, we have tried to make presentations balanced for both Administrators, Developers, and Notes users.
A detailed program and presentations can be viewed at www.sutol.cz
The full house stayed to the very end and there were many people who told me during the day and especially at the end that the event was very enjoyable and sees the true effort of HCL and hope for the rebirth of Domino/Notes.
During the day, a lot of us posted information from the conference on Twitter and if I look at the feedback on my Twitter, the event has also received a response from abroad. Thanks for the feedback.
At the end of the Symposium, we immediately held an organizational team meeting and booked a date for the autumn technical conference. I will not publish the term yet, but it is again in November. We believe that we will show you Domino / Notes V11, that everything will be under the wings of HCL and there will be a lot of things that could not be published at this time.
Thanks again to Richard Jefts and Uffe Sorensen.
Thank you to all the colleagues who took care of the presentations.
I would like to thank all colleagues who participated in the preparation of the symposium.
