Been a while since I posted on a fix, or at all for that matter

So IBM released Fixpack 43 for Quickr Domino yesterday, and as I’ve not posted on the topic since Fixpack 36 more than a year ago…well just a reminder that you should be updating your servers with fixpacks as frequently as possible. With Quickr being EOM’d last year and with support set to go through April 30, 2016 (extensions available for $$$$ through April 30, 2019), you can imagine that the support organization at IBM is easier to work with when you’re on the latest version and fix.

Whoa. Just thinking about that last date. As of April 30, 2019, Quickr will be a 20-year-old (plus one month) web-based collaboration product. Too bad they’re letting it go, I’d have bought it a beer one year later.

Also new with Fixpack 43, IBM has baked in the new qptool migration code to allow you to migrate some content to Connections Content Manager. More on that later, though you can go read my Engage 2014 presentation that covers the topic including warnings and caveats.

That said, I thought I’d share my setups with you — the ones I run in development and staging, and the ones my clients now run.

  • Domino 8.5.3 FP5 (supported, just not documented FP level)
  • Quickr 8.5.1 FP42/43 specific to Domino 8.5.3
  • LDAP of some sort, as I never run Native Domino authentication
  • Internet sites documents are used, so I can compress outgoing files like CSS and JS widgets
  • Transaction logging on, circular, 4096 MB
  • DAOS on, to a separate drive, for attachments over 64k, don’t get greedy
  • View rebuilds on a separate drive
  • A few hundred other settings, OS performance tweaks, antivirus exclusions, etc. appropriate to the environment.

So here’s a list of what IBM has done with Quickr Domino in the past year, in case you’re interested. About 10 of these fixes are “mine”.

In a reprisal of the memorable “Great Code Giveaway” Lotusphere sessions (yes, it was always called Lotusphere for its 10-year run), I’ll be back this Wednesday Feb 22 at 2PM in Moscone West room 2006 with Karl-Henry Martinsson. Yes, another Swede. Like me. I’ll explain. Hope to see you there!
