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.

Microsoft skipping Windows 9 – jumps to Windows 10
Tue, Sep 30th 2014 12:40p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Microsoft unveiled the next version of Windows at a press event in San Francisco today. Surprisingly the successor to Windows 8 and 8.1 will not be called Windows 9 as everyone expected. Instead Microsoft jumps straight to Windows 10. One reason for this, according to Microsoft, is that the new operating system is such a big leap […] [read] Keywords: microsoft

Free Software – Password Reset for Notes/Domino
Wed, Sep 24th 2014 12:41p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Earlier this year I was asked to research some alternatives for a web-based password reset function at my work. One of the larger support burdens are users who forget the passwords, especially in the first few days after changing it. We have a 90 day password lifespan, then a new password need to be picked. Some […] [read] Keywords: domino notes notesdomino password

Thu, Sep 18th 2014 6:05a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Paul Mooney and Bill Buchan returns with a brand new Worst Practices at IBM Connect 2013. This session alone is almost worth the cost to attend Lotusphere/Connect/ConnectED. There is a slight skip towards the end, when I had to switch batteries. Otherwise you have the whole session, including the warm-up performance. [read] Keywords: ibm lotusphere

It is now just two days left to nominate IBM Champions. So if you know someone who have been helping the community, perhaps through video tutorials, blogs, presenting at (or organizing) conferences or answering questions on different forums, submit a nomination. This is how IBM explains what a Champion is: An IBM Champion is someone who […] [read] Keywords: ibm community

#ThrowbackThursday – My old HP calculators
Thu, Sep 11th 2014 6:57a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I have previously here on my blog mentioned my preference for HP calculators. Our first calculator at home was the HP-21, with a red LED display, which we got in late 1975 (if I remember correctly), soon after it was released. My parents used it for all different kinds of calculations, especially taxes (back then the Swedish tax system […] [read] Keywords:

#ThrowbackThursday – World War 1
Thu, Sep 4th 2014 1:05p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
OK, this is a pretty extreme #ThrowbackThursday, but I wanted to promote a blog I have been reading since the beginning of the year. Arthur Linfoot, who took part in World War 1, wrote a diary every day from January 1 1914 to December 31 1918. It was written in Pitman’s shorthand, and his son […] [read] Keywords:
