Last January 2020, we launched a new version of Domino Notes Client (V11) which contains cleaner and modernized UI, minimalist menus, simplified forms and user experience improvements for Mail.  

Under Modernized UI Notes Client V11 appearance has changed the new color scheme and design. Notes Client UI focused on Simplicity so that it will be more user friendly. 

Also, for user experience Improvements, we focused on Progressive disclosure to show the advanced features and actions as the user needs them. 

Finally, we focused on Notes Client performance to be faster and more stable to increase effectiveness of the user. 

In addition to the aforementioned enhancements, new features are also made available in response to the feedbacks and requests from our customers. 

What’s New in Notes v 11 

  • Export to PDF – You can now export emails and documents to PDF from the HCL Notes Client.

  • 24+ hour meeting support – Meetings that are longer than 24 hours are now supported by the HCL Notes® Calendar.

  • Three Click Support – Three click support adds a level of security when a user opens an attachment within an email.

  • Network resiliency improvements – When there is no network connection (when the cable is unplugged or the wireless is unavailable), the Notes client responds with an error message. Previously, the client would freeze before timing out – now, the error message appears right away.

  • Synched release schedule – Starting with this release, Sametime and Notes follow the same release schedule.

  • TLS 1.2 support for SAML – Notes and Embedded Sametime now support TLS 1.2 with Notes Federated login (SAML). This enhancement is a result of upgrading the XULRunner browser within Notes to the latest version (which supports TLS 1.2).

  • MAC 64-bit uninstaller – The uninstaller provided for Notes 11 on Mac is now 64-bit. This change is made because Apple will no longer support a 32-bit uninstaller as of its upcoming Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) release. The 64-bit uninstaller can be used to uninstall Notes 11 running on Mac OS 10.15, 10.14, and 10.13.

  • Moving folders prompt – Users are now prompted to confirm when a mail folder is moved: 

Domino Notes Client is committed to a quarterly release cycle and the latest release is now here. Domino Notes Client customers can download v11.0.1 on FlexNet today!

HCL Domino v12: The 4 New Security Features You’ve Been Waiting for
While no platform is immune to the possibility of hacking, the question I would pose is: Has your Domino infrastructure ever been hacked?  Didn’t think so. It’s probably boring to say that the most straight forward answer is HCL Domino is rock solid on security.   When set up correctly and optimised, HCL Domino is the most secure platform of its type.  It’s true though.  Reliable and secure is a good thing. A very good thing.  The HCL Domino v12 beta is out now.  If you haven't already tried it, it's free for all existing licensed Domino customers.  It's waiting there in flexnet for you to download and try it out!  It's the first time a beta of this type is in existence and it has multiple interactions (we're currently on beta 2; beta 3 is scheduled for the end of March. Register here to join us for the beta 3 webinar. What I really love about it is the almost instantaneous feedback from the beta forum, from those in charge of development.  Domino v12 is scheduled for full release in Q2 of this year.  (June 2021 timeframe is given at the moment). Read an overview of what’s coming here. Here's is a list of all the NEW NATIVE security features coming in Domino v12 and there's a whole host of them: Automating certificate management  Time-based one-time password (TOTP) authentication  Enforce internet password lockout based on IP address  TLS 1.0 is disabled by default  Support for PEM-formatted TLS host keys and certificates  Two new curves supported for TLS 1.2 ciphers that use ECDHE for forward secrecy New template signing ID uses 2048-bit keys NRPC port encryption supports forward secrecy using X25519 Import internet certificates that contain unsupported critical extensions Suppress key rollover alerts during ID vault synchronization New Query Vault command options Support for SameSite cookie  Also note native support for DKIM is planned in the 12.0.x timeline. (Again natively, you can achieve DKIM with third party mail gateways). We could argue about which are the best and more important ones here, but I'm going to concentrate on the 4 new security features in Domino v12 that...
