IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition
Karl-Henry Martinsson    

This morning, IBM presented the latest version of Notes and Domino. The new product name is IBM Notes 9.0 Social Edition. As you notice, the Lotus name is now gone, and the look is changed to look more like other IBM applications, with a more modern design. There are also changes and updates to the user interface inside the different parts of the client.

 

One thing, totally new for Notes, is that tutorials and training videos are available in the client.  The tutorials are not just for new functions, but also older tips and tricks that will make the users more productive.

During the presentation, new functions in mail and calendar were demonstrated. One function that will surely be popular with users is to group mail by date:

Other new features shown were the ability to color code different categories of meetings using custom colors and improved monthly view, as well as a weekly planner taken from Organizer.

The activity stream is using the OpenSocial standard, and Domino is now supporting OAuth and SAML. However, users can deploy Notes 9.0 without the Social Edition functions, and add them later.

Not only has the traditional Notes client been updated, iNotes is also updated to look even more like the rich client. One of the biggest news in this version is the Notes browser plugin, that allow user to run traditional Notes applications directly in the browser, in full fidelity with no Notes client installed. The new version of iNotes also contains the new activity stream, as shown in the image below.

 

A public beta version of Notes 9.0 Social Edition will be available December 14.

Things we don’t want to think about
Thu, May 15th 2014 8:48a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Two separate incidents are leading me to write this blog entry. First, the way too early passing of Tim Tripcony just a few days ago, as well as as the loss of Rob Wunderlich, Jens Augustiny and Kenneth Kjærbye in just a little over a year. All of those members of the Lotus Community left us way […] [read] Keywords: lotus community

In memory of Tim Tripcony
Mon, May 12th 2014 8:15p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
A couple of hours ago, I was reached by the terrible news that Tim Tripcony is no longer with us. I have known Tim for several years, and meeting him at Lotusphere (later Connect) was always a treat. He is one of the most brilliant programmers I have met, and he always had time to talk […] [read] Keywords: ibm lotusphere

Code snippet – Disable agent using external file
Thu, May 1st 2014 9:24p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Yesterday I was asked to create a system that would let us disable agents running on a Domino server in an easy way, before the Domino server comes back from a crash. For a while we have been having one particular agent crash, taking the whole Domino server down with it. It only happens occasionally, and seems to be related to the document being processed. When the server comes up after a crash like that, a consistence check is done, then the agent manager launches the agent again, causing th [read] Keywords: agent domino script library server

Code snippet – jQuery
Sat, Mar 15th 2014 11:43a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
This morning I was working on a web application, and I came up with a pretty neat and simple little solution. So I just wanted to share it, in case anyone else need something similar. I have a webpage with an HTML form. Each input tag has an attribute called notesfield, matching the name of the field in Notes where the value is stored: First Name Initial Last Name Then I created a simple function that will call an agent on the Domino server, which will return all th [read] Keywords: agent domino notes ajax application database server

World Wide Web turning 25 years this week
Fri, Mar 14th 2014 3:02p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
In some articles it is claimed that Internet turns 25 years old this week, which of course is not true. But the World Wide Web is. It was on March 12, 1989 that Tim Berners-Lee wrote a proposal for a hypertext system that would become what we call “the web”. In 1991 the first webpage was created and published at CERN. Since then the web has exploded. I first got in touch with web pages and HTML in 1994, and in 1995 I had my own little server running on my work computer.

Connect 2014 – Day 0 (Saturday)
Mon, Jan 27th 2014 6:03a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
After not hearing the alarm this morning and therefore missing my original flight from DFW to MCO (Orlando International), I got booked on the next flight. I was in the air just a couple of hours late, and arrived at Dolphin in time for BALD at Big River on the Boardwalk. Had a great time connecting with friends after a year of not seeing many of them. Of course I got a hug from Mat Newman, meaning that IBM Connect started for real. Låter I was going to hit ESPN, but due to changes there, [read] Keywords: ibm

Connect 2014 – More about the sessions
Wed, Jan 22nd 2014 12:02p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Countdown to Connect 2014 The sessions at Lotusphere/Connect are focusing more and more on XPages each year. I don’t think there are really any sessions about classic Notes development this year. Currently I am not able to use XPages at work, due to the client environment we run (Lotus Notes 8.5.2 Basic in Citrix), but the sessions are still great (see video below) and I am learning new things every year. Hopefully we will soon switch the client to IBM Notes 9.0 so I can use all th [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm lotus lotusphere notes xpages citrix development network office

Connect 2014 – 3 days left until I leave for Orlando
Wed, Jan 22nd 2014 9:42a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Wednesday morning. In exactly 3 days I will arrive in Orlando, after a short flight from Dallas. My preparations for the trip are almost done, I just have to charge up some batteries for cameras, dig out some spare USB cables and purchase a few last-minute items. So what is it that is so exciting about Lotusphere (now Connect)? How do you explain it to someone who never been there? In the past, several members of the community have brought their significant other to Orlando, at least for a few [read] Keywords: domino lotus lotusphere notes community exchange exchange office wiki

Connect 2014 – My preliminary schedule
Wed, Jan 15th 2014 8:08a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I have now created my preliminary schedule for Connect 2014. There are two only sessions that collide (on Tuesday), and I have not been able to find any repeats for them. That is how often has been at Lotusphere, but I would say that in the later years, the collisions have been fewer and fewer, thanks to more repeats and (perhaps) smarter scheduling. Monday afternoon is when I have set time aside to visit the showcase and the labs. I also have a little bit of time after lunch Wednesday. As [read] Keywords: ibm lotusphere
