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......
Using IBM Lotus Traveler with a proxy....food for thought before you do this
Tue, Dec 16th 2014 6:11a Darren Duke Over that past few weeks I've been banging my head against the wall trying to figure out why a Traveler server that has been relocated behind a proxy would not work (it was a standalone server that was working fine before it was moved behind the proxy). Everything seemed fine, except one couldn't get to the Traveler log on page and/or add devices to the servers. Existing users worked flawlessly. Needless to say this was extremely aggravating. I'd install another, new Traveler server and put i [read] Keywords: domino
How to disable SSLv3 in Domino
Fri, Dec 12th 2014 6:01a Darren Duke In my POODLE TLS post from a few days back, there was a comment asking how to fully disabling SSLv3 in Domino. You'll notice in the comments I mention that there is a way but at the time it was under NDA. Well, apparently not anymore.... Now, fair warning this may not yet be supported by IBM so if you choose to do this, you do it at your own risk (while under NDA on this, it was stated that is unsupported so YMMV). According to this post on the Domino wiki, you can use this server notes [read] Keywords: domino
POODLE TLS - The POODLE Strikes Back - change your settings now....
Tue, Dec 9th 2014 8:11a Darren Duke After a brief chat in the Lotus Notes Skype chat with Jim Casle, Declan Lynch, Steve Pridemore and Frederick Norling it has become apparent that Domino maybe susceptible to the newly discovered POODLE TLS issue (POODLE 2.0 if you will). You can read about the new issues here and here. Go scan your servers at SSL Labs. Anyway, provided you are using 9.0.1 FP IF1 (the TLS fix that IBM provided a while back) the apparent Domino fix is to disable AES and 3DES ciphers and run with only RC4: [read] Keywords: domino
POODLE and SHA2 support coming to Domino
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 9:02a Darren Duke Behold, the silence has ended.....the crescendo that is IBM has finally lifted the veil on some fixes for some very large security holes....AFAIK these are native Domino fixes. I'm unsure of the protocols supported, but my understanding is all of them, but only time will tell. These are not available yet, but should be in "weeks"... First up, fix POODLE outlined in Technote 1687167. This is coming to: 9.0.1 FP2 9.0 8.5.3 FP6 8.5.2 FP4 8.5.1 FP5 I think that is every supported Domino [read] Keywords: domino
So Domino and SHA2.....There’s a SPR for that
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 7:20a Darren Duke As some of you know, SHA2 support in the native Domino HTTP stack has been a bit of a fire starter of late. As IBM like to say "we've not heard that from our customers", here's your chance to change that. How do you do that? Simple, if you are able to create a PMR against Domino (if you're on support for Notes and Domino you can) and mention that you want SPR # ABAI7SASE6 (APAR LO48388) addressed. Here's link to the IBM support portal, so head on over there and create an PMR via an Elec [read] Keywords: domino
