Domino 9.0.1 and beyond
Thu, Aug 25th 2016 10:54a   Volker Weber
Ed Brill, commenting on Darren Duke's rant: To comment on the support point specifically, in the next few weeks we will announce formally that support for 9.0.x will be extended to 2021. It doesn't depend on a version update. And as you note, things originally expected in 9.0.2 are going to come in what are currently called fixpacks. I haven't decided what to call the update with Verse on Premises yet. Reading between the lines: Domino 9.0.2 does not happen. Domino 9.0.1 is not going away

Alexander Neumann für Heise Developer: Viele Domino-Entwickler befürchten schon seit längerem eine unsichere Zukunft für ihr angestammtes Aufgabengebiet. Das kulminiert derzeit in etlichen kritischen Blog-Beiträgen. Vielleicht tritt aber schon nächsten Monat etwas Ruhe ein. More >

Apple has another Music Festival in London. This times it is for Apple Music subscribers only. Which I think is fair enough. More >

An insider's view on Apple Music exclusives
Thu, Aug 25th 2016 3:19a   Volker Weber
There’s one guy who is behind ALL of these campaigns — and he is light years ahead of everyone else. He works intimately with each artist as a creative peer, and develops an amazing plan, this is no simple land grab. He works closer with the artists than labels do. Fascinating read. I did not know about this major change in the industry. More >

Finding text in OneNote images
Wed, Aug 24th 2016 4:58a   Volker Weber
This seems to be difficult to believe, but OneNote really does find text in images. OCR is done in the cloud. If you can't get it to work, just follow my simple steps. Open OfficeLens and take a photo: Although I did not frame the document correctly, it irons it out. Now save the document to OneNote: It will default to just a generic title and I will leave it at this. No tags, no folders, nothing. Open OneNote and type some text into the search field. Here is my document: So it may

Liberate your Notes app with KEEP.WORKS
Wed, Aug 24th 2016 4:11a   Volker Weber
Moving off Notes applications is next to impossible. Notes has a unique set of capabilities that are not easily rebuilt on other platforms. That is what is keeping companies from retiring their Domino servers, even if they have long migrated messaging. I call it the Asbestos problem. Easy to put in, very hard to get out. A few days ago I told you about the partnership of LDC and PSC, where the LDC VIA platform serves as a delivery platform for legacy Notes applications. Now LDC has built a sel

Connections/Verse not running on Android Nougat, yet
Wed, Aug 24th 2016 2:36a   Volker Weber
Heads up from IBM. Both Connections and Verse clients don't work on Android Nougat. If you don't want to be cut off, postpone that update until after IBM releases the next version in September. I think they are also way behind on iOS. Last time I looked they did not support iPhone 6 features, let alone 6S. I hope nothing breaks with iOS 10.

Making money on apps? That's over.
Tue, Aug 23rd 2016 2:31a   Volker Weber
Brent Simmons on the state of creating paid iOS apps: Do we still talk about new apps and recommend apps to people? Hardly, these days. Vesper is shutting down. If Simmons and Gruber cannot keep an iOS app viable, the ecosystem really is in trouble. Games & junk just mask it. You can still make money by creating apps that solve difficult problems. You can still make money by creating apps for people who pay for development? But solving a simple problem does not pay anymore. No matter how

LDC Via partnership with PSC Group
Mon, Aug 22nd 2016 2:54p   Volker Weber
PSC Group and LDC Via have entered into a strategic partnership. Under this partnership PSC Group will adopt LDC Via as a platform for customers seeking to migrate data and applications away from legacy IBM (Lotus) Notes & Domino, and also as a preferred platform for the development of new software applications that might otherwise have been developed on Domino. That is pretty big. PSC Group is a very respected consultancy in the US. LDC is a group of developers in the UK; love those guys.

Android Nougat is here
Mon, Aug 22nd 2016 2:08p   Volker Weber
Google has released Android Nougat, a.k.a. Android 7.0. If you have a Nexus or Pixel, you can upgrade right away. If not, you may have to wait a few months, or most likely never get it unless you buy a new device. Next year will be the anniversary of the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro announcement, which wasn't available for months. It came with Android 5.1, was never upgraded to Android 6.0, and has not received security fixes since March, 1. And that's an expensive flagship device. Other vendors like
