Starting with Domino V11, you can configure Domino to use an ID vault password to authenticate web users accessing the server.
If enabled uses the Domino server to authenticate users to HCL Verse, HCL iNotes with their Notes ID and passwords stored in IDVault. With this feature, users only can to remember their password in the file ID.
This feature is ignored for authentication of the following users:
Notes client users
Web-only users without Notes IDs
Users who authenticate via SAML federated identity authentication
How to configure?
Create or edit a Configuration document in the Domino directory. (Configuration – Servers – Configurations)
Open the Security tab
In the Internet Password Verification section, select one of the following options
If some web users with registered Notes IDs do not have IDs in the vault or if you are unsure if they do, use “Check vault first, then directory“. If Notes IDs are not found in the vault, Domino will use internet passwords in Domino directory Person documents to authenticate the users.
During 2019 I described in some articles what should appear in V11. Now that the final release has been published I can summarize all the major news. To what extent it differs from previous announcements you can judge for yourself.
NOTES V11 CLIENT
New modern look:
Inbox action bar (There are fewer icons above the inbox on the action bar. Further options can be viewed when you select and hover over an email)

Export to PDF (You can now export emails and documents to PDF from the HCL Notes client.Windows machines require a PDF printer to support PDF exports)
24+ hour meeting support (Meetings that are longer than 24 hours are now supported by the HCL Notes Calendar. This feature requires a Notes 11 version mail template)
Three click support (Three click support adds a level of security when a user opens an attachment within an email)
Network resiliency improvements (When there is no network connection (when the cable is unplugged or the wireless is unavailable), the Notes client responds with an error message)
Synched release schedule (Starting with release V11, Sametime and Notes follow the same release schedule)
TLS 1.2 support for SAML (Notes and Embedded Sametime now support TLS 1.2 with Notes Federated login (SAML)
Mac 64-bit uninstaller (The uninstaller provided for Notes 11 on Mac is now 64-bit. This change is made because Apple will no longer support a 32-bit uninstaller as of its upcoming Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) release)
Moving folders prompt (Users are now prompted to confirm when a mail folder is moved)
24+ hour meeting support (This feature requires a Notes 11 version mail template)
“We want to use shared calendars and want to access them online. We have Notes clients, web browsers, mobile phones, tablets with both iOS and Android. So why restrain yourself.” Do you have a solution? “
Well, yeah. I think the task is done. Although in a test environment, but here it is:
Shared calendar using Notes client 11
Shared calendar using web browser (iNotes)
Shared calendar using web browser (HCL Verse)
Shared calendar using HCL Nomad iPad
Shared calendar using HCL Nomad Tablet Android
Shared calendar using HCL Nomad iPhone
Do you have group calendars created in your calendar? You can also display it on your mobile device.

This occurs if the server is not part of a cluster. This is documented under Technote #0872404. This is a regression beginning in 10.0.

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.

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.

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 #JALAAQZLBL – Fixed a problem where a line break is lost in the body text when a mailto link is clicked on the received message.
