HCL Software is pleased to announce a new release of HCL Domino and an upcoming fix pack for HCL Sametime. The launch of v11 represented a major milestone in HCL’s commitment to the Domino and Sametime roadmaps and our community. We’ve focused these enhancements on feedback from our beta testers and your ideas from the Aha! Portal.

Domino v11.0.1 now available for download on FlexNet and Sametime v11.0 FP1 will be available early April.

HCL Domino v11.0.1 Highlights

  • Group 1 languages packs
  • Domino Docker Image based on RHEL UBI
  • Security improvements to core Domino
  • AppDev Pack 1.0.4
  • HCL Enterprise Integrator for Domino supports v10 and v11 Domino versions
  • Notes v11.0.1 improvements


Sametime v11.0 FP1 Highlights

  • New Mobile HCL Sametime v11 apps for iOS and Android
  • HCL Sametime proxy support for mobile clients
  • Stand-alone HCL Sametime Community Mux install
  • Install support for Linux console and sample files for silent
  • Translation updates


HCL Domino and Notes v11.0.1

Group 1 Language Packs
The following languages are available in the HCL Domino language pack: Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. Details of when Group 1 Language Packs will be available on v11.0.1 will be announced shortly.

Docker on Docker Linux Image
HCL Domino 11.0.1 includes a Docker-compatible Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI) of Domino that is part of your entitlement and available for download through the HCL Licensing Portal. HCL Domino 11.0.1 is pre-installed on this image, allowing you to deploy Domino servers as containers with just a few commands. Thank you to those who upvoted this idea!

TCO Improvements
Auto Update (AUT) servers now support future upgrades of HCL Client Application Access (HCAA) clients and we’ve made DAOS Tier2 configuration improvements. Also, we have updated the version of MarvelClient Essentials from panagenda that comes with Notes and Domino.

Security Improvements
We’ve made the following important security improvements to Domino:

  • Subject Alternate Name (SAN) support: X.509 certificates with a SAN field (extension) no longer require a Subject field containing a distinguished name for TLS connections.
  • Server Name Indication (SNI) support: Domino web servers now support the Server Name Indication (SNI) extension to the Transport Security Layer (TLS) protocol. You can host multiple SSL certificates on the same Domino server with just one IP address. We’re glad to make this idea part of GA!
  • New Notes IDs must have 1024-bit or stronger RSA keys: We are increasing security by enforcing a higher encryption strength when registering new Notes User IDs. New user IDs must now have at least a 1024-bit RSA key size.


AppDev Pack 1.0.4
Release 1.0.4 includes the following changes:

  • Support for Domino v11.0.1 or later and Domino v10.0.1FP4 or later. The AppDev Pack install kit includes separate archives for each major Domino release.
  • Domino-db support for rich text items in Notes documents. This came from another requested idea.
  • Domino-db support for running agents in a Notes database.
  • Proton request rate limiting for rogue applications.
  • Proton console log messages are now written to log.nsf on the Domino server. See the PROTON_USE_LOGNSF Notes.ini in Proton Administration to revert to the old behavior of only writing to the console.log file.

HCL Enterprise Integrator
HCL Enterprise Integrator (HEI) for Domino can be used to perform high-volume data transfers, synchronize disparate data sources, and provide real-time integration between Domino and backend data sources such as DB2, SQL, and Oracle. You can construct complex workflows straight out of the box and run all your Lotus script agents in one place for better control and scheduling.

HEI supports both Domino v10 and v11, with support on Windows and Linux. Note that with Domino v11 and HEI v11, HCL will no longer make OEM Progress Datadirect ODBC drivers available. The use of ODBC drivers from Progress and other vendors working with Domino and HEI are fully supported.


Notes v11.0.1

  • SwiftFile is now installed with Notes: As requested in this idea, SwiftFile assistant is now integrated with HCL Notes in v11.0.1. In previous releases, it was provided separately.
  • Changes to attachment viewing and importing: The underlying software that Notes uses to import and view attachments has changed in v11.0.1.
  • AES for database encryption: As requested in this idea, HCL Notes v11.0.1 introduces 128-bit AES as an option for local database encryption.
  • Support for JAWS 2019: The screenreader JAWS version 2019 is supported for use with Notes v11.0.1.


HCL Sametime v11.0 FP1

New Mobile HCL Sametime v11 Clients on iOS and Android

  • HCL Sametime v11 mobile clients fully supports persistent chat with a newer, cleaner, and modernized color scheme and design.
  • New “click to meet” feature is fully integrated with the HCL Sametime v11 mobile clients.
  • iOS and Android keyboard emoticons are now enabled.

 

HCL Sametime Proxy Support for Mobile Clients
This includes supporting persistent chat, multiple client connections, and mobile device push notifications.


Stand-Alone HCL Sametime Community Mux Install
If you have a large number of Sametime users, the HCL Sametime community server can be expanded and extended for chat and awareness using a stand-alone Sametime community Mux. Mux is a connections synchronizer that can take in thousands of connections and send them to backend community servers, making the community server scalable. HCL Sametime Community Mux installs are supported on both Windows and Linux platforms.


Install Support for Linux console and Sample Files for Silent
HCL Sametime Community on Linux operating system adds support for console installs.  In addition, sample files for silent installs are now provided.


Translation Updates
Additional language support has been added to the HCL Sametime Community, Proxy, and Clients.

Low and Behold: Why Low Code Development Matters. Insights into a modern way to build applications
By: HCL Domino Team
Low code is a software development platform that gives non-coders and coders alike the chance to develop applications through visual interfaces instead of traditional hand-coded programming.   In plain English, it’s the power to create processes without the technical experience or hand coding background application development once needed.  (It’s like suddenly being able to sing, dance, and generally dominate like Beyoncé without having to undergo 25+ years of endless practice and constant performing.)    Comparing application development to pop stardom may not be the most common way to highlight the potential benefits of low code. But by not requiring a background in coding expertise, low code allows a wider audience to create applications, making for a faster and potentially more innovative environment that companies can benefit from. (It’s like turning lemonade into even better lemonade. Ok that’s the final reference to Queen B, promise). But we’re just getting started diving into the upside of low code. Develop Business Software at Incredible Speeds Low code development should be fast.    Unlike the laborious line-by-line hand coding process that is traditionally associated with software programming, low code can go from concept to reality in a flash.  Low code allows developers to execute apps up to 60-70% faster than handwritten code, bypassing the time-consuming steps of repeatedly writing, testing and debugging code until it works correctly.  Low-code development can give designers drag-and-drop features through a visual user interface, making it easy to build intuitively while cutting down on complicated obstacles that only expert coders can spot and fix.  By making the process more visual and less repetitive, low code brings a newfound velocity to a typically slow undertaking.   Increase Enterprise Productivity  When you increase the speed of app building, and you save designers and developers time, you open new space up for productivity throughout the entire enterprise. But it’s not only the efficiencies that companies benefit from.  Those closest to a problem can fix it without a drawn-out drama that drains weeks of time and energy from the IT department. Solving...

Licensing Update: HCL Complete Collaboration (CCB) Guest Licensing
By: Uffe Sorensen, Global Director of DS Strategy, HCL Software
Since July 2019, it has been HCL Digital Solutions’ mission to help our customers and business partners by introducing contemporary licensing and making license management easier for all our products. Today, we are taking the next step towards consolidating all of our Domino licensing on a "per user" license model – the HCL Domino Complete Collaboration offering a.k.a “CCB.” Effectively immediately, customers with HCL Domino Servers deployed under CCB Authorized User entitlements can be accessed by a Licensee’s entitled CCB Authorized Users and Guest Users. A “Guest User” can be an anonymous web user (no authentication), or an authenticated web user with a predefined maximum level of Domino application access (ACL) as “Depositor.” In addition, HCL Domino servers under CCB may participate in mail routing (SMTP), directory lookup and authentication (LDAP) for non-HCL Domino programs and permit access to free/busy time calendar information. HCL made these changes to the CCB license based on customer requests to facilitate: • A read-only external or internal web site for Guest Users • Data collection using surveys generated by Domino Volt 1.0.1 and its anonymous user support available today. • Removing the need for a separate Utility Server license for Guest Users with complex PVU reporting requirements. • Clarifying licensing for mail and calendar interoperability in multi-vendor scenarios involving our partner’s solutions. In August, HCL plans to update the formal License Information found here. In the meantime, you may refer to this blog or you can request a formal Product Notice for compliance. If you have any questions about this announcement or have any licensing questions, please contact your HCL product specialist or Business Partner. Uffe Sorensen & the Domino Product Team Disclaimer – HCL’s statements regarding its plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice at HCL’s sole discretion.
