|History: Beginning with 9.0.1 FP8, fix packs have been renamed to feature packs. To ensure quality, these feature packs still have a high focus on addressing high impacting defects. Where possible, these features are optionally enabled to minimize risk. The same packaging, architecture and install kits used in previous fix packs remain in use for feature packs.
IBM has identified important Notes®/Domino® SPR's to be fixed in the latest Feature Pack release, 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10.
The Notes®/Domino® Fix List website on developerWorks will show you the status of this Feature Pack on the Upcoming Releases tab. This preliminary Release Notice will be updated to include a more descriptive explanation of the problem and fix, where applicable. Also, a link to the technote and regression information will be provided.
Notes®/Domino® 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 addresses defects in the Client, Server, and the Domino OpenSocial component. All Feature Packs are language independent and may be applied on any language version of Notes®/Domino® 9.0.1.
Notes®/Domino® 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 includes new features that benefit our customers. Some of these features have been in development for years and we are excited to make them available. Please refer to the "New Features" section below for more details.
9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 includes all of the content and supersedes the following deliverables:
- Notes: 9.0.1 FP9, 9.0.1 FP9IF1
- Domino: 9.0.1 FP9, 9.0.1 FP9IF1, 9.0.1 FP9IF2
- iNotes: 9.0.1 FP9, 9.0.1 FP9IF1
Decision to upgrade
Customers are urged to upgrade to the latest Release and Feature Packs (in this case, 901FP10) to benefit from later features and fixes made to the product. By providing a number of features and fixes, customers are able to accept fewer code changes with lower risk, allowing them to "patch" an older Maintenance Release.
Feature Packs provide important fixes and IBM strongly recommends applying the latest Feature Pack available for a Maintenance Release to receive the broadest set of fixes available.
Things to Note:
- The JVM was upgraded to Java 1.8 SR5 FP6 (with tzdata17c) (SPR #HYUEASEPJ4)
- For information on NBP (Notes Browser Plugin), Notes® Client on Linux, or Domino® Server on Linux32 and AIX32, please refer to the 9.0.1 FP8 release notice.
- Templates – There are no template updates for FP10; use templates from FP9
- Pre-Req for Traveler Server: If are upgrading the version of Domino to 9.0.1 FP10 on your Traveler server, for server compatibility use Traveler 188.8.131.52 or higher.
New Features in IBM Notes/Domino® 9.0.1 Social Edition Feature Pack 10
1) The JVM in Designer is Upgraded to use 1.8 at compile time
With this new upgrade, you can launch Designer client and leverage Java 1.8 compile time features in building applications. For full compatibility, apps compiled in FP10 should be deployed on Notes or Domino FP10 and higher. Java apps may run on Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP8 and higher as that release upgrade to Java 1.8 runtime. However, Application best practice is to compile with the lowest common denominator to the client/server version deployed.
2) Eclipse Platform Upgraded to 4.6.2 - The 9.0.1 FP10 platform is upgraded from Eclipse 3.4.2 to Eclipse 4.6.2. This includes SWT, OSGi, Jface and other re-lated Eclipse plugins. Notes, Designer, Embedded Sametime, and Connections Plugins now leverage Eclipse 4.6.2. The Domino server uses the OSGi bundles from Eclipse 4.6.2 for servlet and XPages access.
3) Embedded Sametime Upgraded To 9.0.1 By Default
The default version of the Embedded Sametime in the Notes Client has been upgraded to the 9.0.1 (previously 8.5.2), which eliminates the need for an add-on installer for Sametime.
4) The GSKit libraries for are upgraded on all client/server platforms except IBM i to Version 184.108.40.206 (which contains FIPS Certified ICC Version: 220.127.116.11) for both client & server. GSKit is used for FIPs support, AES , 1024+ RSA, and Diffie-Hellman. IBM i will be evaluated for a future release.
5) Japanese User Interface Update
An optional Japanese User Interface update includes fixes for high-impact localization defects. The 'IBM Notes Client 9.0.1 FP10 Japanese User Interface Update' requires 9.0.1 Japanese Client/Japanese MUI + FP10.
6) Add-on Installer for Notes CCM (Connections Content Manager)
An add-on installer for Notes CCM eliminates the need for special hotfixes but does require 9.0.1 FP10. This optional add-on allows a Notes client to show Libraries from CCM for use with email and calendar.
Note: The Notes CCM now supports the Dutch language in addition to previously supported languages For more details on CCM, see https://www.ibm.com/us-en/marketplace/connections-content-management.
Fixes contained in this Feature Pack
What follows is a subset of high impacting bug fixes addressed in this feature pack. For the full list of fixes, visit the fixes by release view for the description of each fix in this Fix Pack, including platform specific information.
[hyperlink = https://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/fixlist.nsf]
A plus symbol (+) before the SPR number indicates a fix for a regression bug. A regression bug is an issue that was introduced in a Maintenance Release but did not exist in previous releases of that code stream. For example, a bug that appears in 9.0.1 but did not exist in 9.0.0 is a regression.
If an APAR exists for the corresponding SPR, the APAR number will appear in parentheses next to the SPR number. For example, SPR #nnnnnnnnnn (LO12345).
The Fix List database on developerWorks contains the description of each fix in this Feature Pack, and indicates which platform(s) have been fixed.
