  • SPR #JCUSB76KF4 – Fixed an issue with coupled DQL range (<, ,+, >, >=) term (with both high and low bounds provided) ANDed with at leat one other term finds all documents when it should find none.

  • SPR #HPUTB5PEKZ – Fixed a missing online meeting password in an update notice when a meeting with online meeting details is updated by Chair.
  • SPR #GRHEB7ET5U – Fixed an issue where two domino servers saving the same attachment to DAOS with DAOS encryption disabled create files with the same name but different file headers (and therefore different checksums). While this does not cause any problems for Domino or DAOS, it prevented some 3rd party de-duplication storage devices from being able to eliminate redundant copies of any given .nlo. This change ensures that any new DAOS objects which are created will have a consistent file format and that an attachment stored to DAOS will have the same name and checksum regardless of which Domino server creates it.
  • SPR #LIBAB59NUY – The ability to enable the upload of a notes ID to the mail file via iNotes can now be enabled on the server using the notes.ini of ENABLE_IDUPLOAD_FOR_SAML=1.
  • SPR#JBUDB6NMJ6 – Restrictions on the length of JVM arguments passed to the JVM on AIX / IBM i platforms caused Tika attachment filtering to fail to load. This fix allows Tika to load though a side-effect is that some additional Tika-related debug may appear in the live server console only. The additional debug is not written to the console log file on disk.
  • SPR #RGAU9VLHT3 – On the domino server set the following notes.ini (DISABLE_SAML_FLAG=1) to allow for an ID vault sync with a SAML user via the SecIdfget function.

iNotes:

  • SPR #RRENB6SK4D- Fixed an issue in Firefox that spell check inserts unexpected new line into sentences with misspelled words and misspelled words cannot be replaced if signature is already inserted into rich text editor.
  • SPR #NKEYB6WPCR – Fixed a problem that suggested words in spell check dialog is not selectable when using Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7.
  • SPR #TKAAB6F58P – Fix a problem where the focus is not set when a new mail notification appears on IE11.
  • SPR #ASHHB55CB6 – Fixed a problem where a special type of nested folders disappears in the dialog box of a folder operation.
  • SPR #SAHEB6SEQB – When using INI iNotes_WA_AmbigDefNoSelection, the OK button will not be initially focused and no candidate will be initially selected on an ambiguous dialog box.
  • SPR #JALAAQZLBL – Fixed a problem where a line break is lost in the body text when a mailto link is clicked on the received message.

Do you need to change the font size in the Notes client?

If you need to use larger or smaller fonts at all times, close Notes client, open notes.ini file in a text editor and add the following setting as a new line anywhere in the file:
Display_font_adjustment=n

“n” is the number of points added to the default size and is a number between -1 and 25. For example, if you want to increase the font size by 3 points, you would type: Display_font_adjustment=3

“Top 20” Fix List IBM Domino/Notes 10.0/10.0.1

IBM has released a list “top 20” Fix List Domino/Notes 10.

Notes/Domino 10.0/10.0.1 contains fixes for approximately 2000 known issues. As IBM said: “This list was compiled to identify the issues that most significantly impact customers”.

Official announcement and IBM Fix List – Link

Client :

  • SPR #RREN8G2N6L – Fixed a printing defect that caused the printed output to be different thant what was being displayed on screen for a MIME email message. For example, if hide details was selected to suppress the to/cc list, that info would print out. With this fix, it will remain suppressed. 
  • SPR #SJCN8K6KYX – Vertical Scroll bars will now appear in mail preferences Mail signature rich text dialog if typing in a longer signature. This will allow the user to scroll up and down making it easier to edit the signature
  • SPR #BHUY7PEEQ9 – Notes 10.0 will now spellcheck across multiple languages on windows in a single document. This feature is not available on the mac. This feature is on by default and can be disabled with a new ini SPELL_DISABLE_MULTIPLE_LANG_CHECK=1
  • SPR #CSMHAG9M5K – Fixed numerous display issues with Notes client on 4k displays
  • SPR #NKAH9RWEK9 – Fixed an issue with blank/generic icons appearing for shortcut link attachments. On Windows, a user can create a shortcut link to a file. This shortcut has the icon of the associated program. Prior to this fix, if the shortcut was attached in a rich text field in Notes, the icon would be a generic icon. This was a regression introduced in 9.0.
  • SPR #TYITA548NJ – Fixed an issue in iNotes related to auto-save that would lead to either duplicate attachments being sent or multiple attachments beginning with ATTxxx in the attachment name. These duplicate attachments would show up in sent or draft mail.
  • SPR #ZKCO8ZZ9ZU – Increased the block sender list by 10x. Now if you choose the action for [Deliver Sender’s mail to Junk] you can add 10 times as many senders/users to the list
  • SPR #MWID7LWRJ7 – Fixed an issue where the ini ShowPreviewCollapsedInitially=1 would not honor all cases of collapsing the preview pane in the mail inbox. Now this ini can be pushed out via policy and handle all cases for primary user or mail file delegate
  • SPR #MPAA6PQCHK – Added support for the Notes client to send mail directly to an SMTP server that supports STARTTLS. Prior to this fix, sending SMTP outbound mail directly to the internet using Notes Client with an SSL enabled account yielded an SSL handshake error. Both client and template code were modified for this fix

Server:

  • SPR #MJTM9R2P8P – Fixed a potential crash involving both Domino and Traveler when a bad document was encountered
  • SPR #MIAS99HP2S – Fixed a potential Domino Server hang that could occur with databases that were <ODS 51
  • SPR #LMAN7QPHSU – Fixed mail policy Sender Colors to accept multiple values. Before this fix, the policy would not work if it contained more than one sender name.
  • SPR #KLIN5GHRZR – Fixed an LDAP performance issue. The Domino LDAP server has slow response time when search filters contain attributes that are telephone numbers. This fix enables LDAP queries to use FT index for locating the telephonenumber attribute. It can be enabled by adding LDAPUseFTSearchTelephone=1 to the INI file. One caveat is that the search must match the telephone number exactly, including parentheses, dashes, or other non-numeric characters.
  • SPR #TOCL9DVN4K – Prior to this fix, if the 64k limit of password reset authorities was exceeded, password authorities would be removed. After this fix, an error is displayed instead, and no password reset authorities are removed.
  • SPR #MZHO7PM4CC – Fixed an issue that would prevent mail routing to occur If mail.box was being repaired when router is started.
  • SPR #HSPR9DKAAT – Fixed a potential Domino Server crash in database code
  • SPR #DCOE7X7L3W – Corrected an issue that would show an incorrect warning that would not go away after running Fixup. The message was, WARNING: Residual form bucket bitmap optimization failed validation test. Please run fixup on this database.
  • SPR #JEKY5ARNPA – Soft deletions are now maintained when creating a new replica. This fix is off by default and can be enabled with the new ini REPL_SOFT_DELETES. To enable the fix, set REPL_SOFT_DELETES=1.
  • SPR #MLAT9FTTE4 – Fixed a policy issue in pubnames.ntf which would prevent the discover page from being suppressed on Notes client
