We continue our rolling release cycle for HCL Connections, with our seventh release in the past two years. We are excited to announce that as of March 26, 2020, Connections 6.5 CR 1 is available for download. Many of our improvements are a direct result of customer feedback — we continue to focus on engaging user experiences, user adoption, and making sure it’s easier to integrate Connections into the applications you use every day. The first thing you’ll notice is a new logo and theme color in the Connections mobile client — we are excited to be fully embedded within the HCL product family with our new look and feel. We also have more mobile advancements, as well as additional new features and fixes.
