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.

The “early bird” conference fee is $1,595 and on October 4 it goes up to the full price, $1,795.

I am a victim of identity theft
Tue, Aug 12th 2014 7:53p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
This weekend I found out that I am a victim of identity theft. It is very unsettling, and feels like a total violation of my privacy. My girlfriend Chrissy and I were discussing the potential of me getting a new car in the next few months. I am having some repairs coming up on my […] [read] Keywords:

The joy of programming
Wed, Aug 6th 2014 12:36p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I have been programming since the beginning of 1983. I started over 30 years ago with Basic, then went to Pascal after about 3 years. I then in fairly quick succession went to C, Visual Basic, VBA and then a few years later (in 1996) to Lotusscript. Along the way I also picked up Javascript, as well […] [read] Keywords: lotusscript javascript

Lotus Notes at my work threatened by Microsoft bug
Tue, Aug 5th 2014 2:10p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
The company I work for is owned by a large multinational corporation, and we are one of the few places not using Outlook/Exchange, but Lotus Notes. We have a substantial investment in custom applications written for the Notes platform, and with the deep integration between applications and email, we want to stay on the platform.

First of all, the event is shorter than previous years. It starts on Sunday and ends on Wednesday instead of Thursday. On Sunday IBM has scheduled the Leadership Alliance meeting, which previously been held in […] [read] Keywords: ibm

Recover lost SSL keyring password
Thu, Jul 24th 2014 10:45a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
About two years ago, our Network (as well as Domino) administrator left the company after 10 years. The other day our SSL certificate for one of our websites expired, and we wanted to use a newer wildcard certificate instead of a server specific certificate. The problem was that we did not have the password for […] [read] Keywords: domino lotus network password server

Code snippet – DateClass
Mon, Jul 21st 2014 6:45p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Here is a small Lotusscript class I wrote some years ago. I use it in a number of other classes where I need to use date functionality of different kind. For example, I have a class that communicates with a FoxPro database, using a COM object. Some of the methods in that class uses XML while […] [read] Keywords: domino lotusscript database xml

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
