Last month, we introduced the HCL Domino V12 Early Access Program, where we provided customers the chance to test new product features early in the development cycle. Today, our engaged development team has provided a new code drop named “October 2020”, now available for download on Flexnet to all current customers. 

We are looking for YOUR feedback on the features provided below, please: 

  1. Start testing the Early Access Code – details on how to get started can be found here 
  2. Vote for the ideas referenced or leave a comment
  3. Join the discussion and provide feedback in our forum here.

What’s Provided in this Release  
 
Time-based one-time password (TOTP) authentication  
When users log on to a Domino Web server, you can now require that they provide time-based one-time passwords in addition to their user names and passwords. These one-time passwords are generated by authenticator apps like Authy, Google Authenticator or similar.  

DAOS Version 2  
DAOS Version 2 (DAOSV2) is a new version of DAOS that provides a more reliable way of tracking DAOS objects on a server. 
 
Certificate management improvements  
A number of enhancements and improvements related to certificate management are provided:  

  • Disable TLS 1.0 by default now  
  • Support for PEM-file format, in additon to *.kyr file format 
    (Note: This feature is intended as a test bed for future work supporting PEM-formatted keys and certificates)  
  • Support for using CertMgr to import third-party CA keys and certificates – based on this idea (Thanks Martin!) 
  • Support for replacing keys generated by the Let’s Encrypt CA 

 
Domino directory enhancements  
There are a number of improvements around the Domino directory design (pubnames.ntf) to improve usability for administrators. Some of which were long standing requests. If you like what you see, please vote for the idea(s)s referenced below: 

  • Mail-In Databases and Resources view – based on your input from this idea (Thanks Michael!)The Mail-In Databases and Resources view now displays the internet addresses of mail-in databases that have them and also includes a Go to Database button to open mail-in databases from the view. 
     
  • Custom criteria to populate groups – based on your input in this idea (Thanks Vladislav!) 
    When you create a group in the Domino directory, you can now populate the members of the group based on an LDAP search query.  
     
  • HEX codes displayed for TLS ciphers – based on this idea (Thanks Torsten!) 
    As a convenience to administrators, HEX codes are shown next to the symbolic names for the TLS ciphers that can be selected in various fields in the Domino directory. 
     
  • Applets no longer used – based on your input from this idea (Thanks Bill!) 
    Applets are no longer used to display the navigational outline of the Domino Directory or action buttons such as Add Person.  
     
  • Button to see all Configuration Settings documents associated with a server
    From an open Server document you can click the Find Server Config button to see all of the Configuration Settings documents associated with the server.  

     

 
New LotusScript & Java Methods for developers – based on your input from this idea (Thanks Michael!)  
Support transaction-based operations in LS and Java. 

Furthermore, I’d like to mention features that we have provided in the previous release (September 2020)
