Well, not really fix pack 25, more like "Upgrade Pack 1". It resolves a whole lot of issues inadvertently introduced moving from Quickr 8.2 to 8.5.x and add some oft requested features (internet site docs). Specifically addressed are the following (from Luis Benitez's blog):
Addition of the Folder Navigator for libraries with deep folder hierarchies and the Index
Improved preview for Microsoft Office file attachments and imported pages
Support for importing HTML
Display of an attachment's last modified date on Attachments tab
Simplified place creation process that eliminates the requirement of reauthentication
The ability for editors and authors to create folders in a place.
Support for Internet Site documents
(bold is my emphasis)
Watch out, as FP25 does have a new qp2.cab to that will need to be pushed out in most organizations. And a request to IBM, please enter the date added to the "Additional Information for special fixes" section so we can easily tell what is new in the qpconfig.xml or notes.ini files.
Fixes are cumulative and contain the following in addition to the above (and I'm including FP13 here as I missed that one myself):
Enable the browser client to remember View preferences, such as how many items to show per page. (see fix CRAY87TRS5 in “Additional Information for special fixes” section)
Unable to view the Modified Date on attachments on a Page.
The "Log Out" link is not being displayed if using Domino Internet Site documents.
SameTime Awareness not working if using Domino Internet Site documents.
The manager can make changes to the Table Of Contents in connectors even if they do not have permission to do so.
When using an older theme images attached through the rich text editor show as attachments in the page.
When a Calendar Event has been saved into a different Folder than the Calendar, the Event shows as a Task.
When printing a 1 or 2 week Calendar when there are a lot of entries in the Calendar causes the page to never finish loading.
Quickr Domino server crash due to an incorrectly formatted URL.
RSS Feeds are limited to a maximum of 10 documents. (see fix CSTS8N8TWE in the “Merging Notification Template Updates” section)
The last modified time / date of a folder is updated even if the user cancels out of the Folder Properties.
When running 'qptool newsletter', the newsletter shows a document modified by the original author even if that document was modified by someone else.
After upgrading from Quickplace 7 to Quickr 8.2 to Quickr 8.5.1, a Task loses the display name of who the Task was assigned to.
Using a Custom Form with an Options control, if you create a document and select an item in the list and then later modify the Custom Form to not include that item. The document will have the wrong item selected.
Using a Custom Workflow Form with both a Text field and a Rich Text field, modifying a document where the Rich Text field is changed, the modifications are not saved.
In a customer specific place that has a Custom Form, when logged in as an owner or manager and going into a Room, that Custom Form is not shown, though it is shown for regular users.
Also handy is this little gem:
CLOH8PBCJ3 - When upgrading a place to 8.5.x, a document based off a custom form that contains an attachments field has the Connectors default action of opening the document in the browser.
This is by design when importing documents based on a custom form.
To allow a document based off a custom form that contains a single attachment to be launched from the Connectors set the following notes.ini setting and restart your Quickr Domino server: QuickPlaceUpgradeCustomFormsSingleAttachDocBecomesSingle=1
Then you must run ‘load qptool upgrade -f -a’ on the server to update the documents.
The upgraded documents with a single attachment will now appear in Connectors so that you can double click to open them.
Please note, if each document based off your custom form will only contain a single attachment, you should modify your custom form to remove the Attachments field and then add a Single Attachment field, this way newly created documents will have the default action of launching within the Connectors.
Oh, how I wish that had been in since 8.5 shipped. But that must surely be one of the longest notes.ini settings in history......
Update to the Domino cluster post, when to use "SERVER_RESTRICTED"
Wed, May 1st 2013 10:34a Darren Duke After the last clustering post, Stop users accidentally connecting to passive Domino cluster servers I've have several people ask when I would use SERVER_RESTRICTED as I'd indicated I would not use that to keep users off my clusters. Well, let's look at this scenario where you are running an active-passive cluster (that is one server handles all user requests-the active; the other handles fail over when the active is down-the passive): Your active server goes boom for whatever reason, h [read] Keywords: domino
Stop users accidentally connecting to passive Domino cluster servers
Mon, Apr 15th 2013 6:40a Darren Duke In clusters I prefer to split my users between them, but if you don't do that (or can't, because as you have a Domino cluster server at a remote DR site for fail over only) then you can do the following to stop users accidentally connecting to the dormant/passive cluster member: Add SERVER_AVAILABILITY_THRESHOLD=100 to the dormant/passive server notes.ini file. Once you add that you should eventually see the server availability switch to this: Some things to understand here.. [read] Keywords: domino
