That just happened. And by the way, this is what “dead” means in software.

CRs and HFs and FPs, oh my…IBM Connections 5.0 CR1 is released
Thu, Oct 16th 2014 11:43a   Rob Novak
For those who don’t know, and care…I know the numbers are getting small here…: HF: “HotFix” – which in software terms generally means a specific fix for one problem, given out to customers on an as-needed basis and generally rolled up into other more comprehensive groups of fixes. FP: “FixPack” – what it sounds like, a package of fixes (some of which may have been deemed HotFixes), that when released is supported. Sometimes, a FixPack will in

One of the most often asked questions about Lotus Quickr in its golden years has been “what do I have?” — meaning, on the server and in the places. This is the case with any self-service platform and has been especially pertinent with Quickr, as IBM has unintentionally made some of its migration requirements quite difficult to get your head around. A basic for-instance: the requirement that all workflows be complete before starting to migrate a place. Super, makes sense. Except

Question of the year: what to do with Quickr
Tue, Jun 17th 2014 3:30p   Rob Novak
It’s been 16 months now since the end of marketing for IBM’s Lotus Quickr 8.5.1 (a less than desirable move, IMO, not that I’m biased). In that time, I have fielded questions from conference audiences and increasingly this year, clients and Quickr customers about what they should be planning to do. Sometimes, with Quickr applications or deployments in the thousands and tens of thousands of users. As I’ve mentioned before, support will go on for a while – most likely

This week is a week of announcements in our tech world (check the at wires 3AM EDT tomorrow, for instance…). My own announcement is that SNAPPS has become a partner with a new major vendor, Intuit, with their QuickBase online database SaaS solution. This effort is 8 months in the making, and I’m very pleased to say that after several visits with Intuit QuickBase folks both at their headquarters and other events, I’m very excited about the prospects of working together on the ne

Well IBM’s Lotus Quickr 8.2 is going out of service a bit earlier than I anticipated. In fact, I was on a web conference with a client just today(!) and they showed me their custom 8.2 site and discussed their desire to export it and get the contents into SharePoint (yeah, I do that, sue me). Here’s the full announcement: http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?subtype=ca&infotype=an&appname=iSource&supplier=897&letternum=ENUS913-176 And the relevant details

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 v
