For everybody working in ICS, next week is going to be pretty interesting,
Domino 10.0.1 together with Notes Client 10.0.1 (including the Mac Version) is going to be published next week, on December 18th, to be precise.
Verse on-Premises 1.0.6 is also coming out, I just can´t wait to start using it, because if I remember the feature list correctly…ics….support….. 😀 Fireworks! 🙂
The new Domino Community and Notes Community 10.0.1 Server will also be released, so the developers can develop their applications on Domino without any licensing costs. There was also a rumor to change the license so it can be used in production (FOR FREE) for a certain number of users, also for MAIL. I think this is a great idea. Create a few Docker Containers for Mail and Development, no Licensing Costs, imagine that!
Every now and then we have a customer who would like to use the IBM/HCL Notes or ICAA Client on Windows Terminal Servers, but this is officially not supported. Since a few days there is an Idea on “Domino Product Ideas” forum regarding this.
So if you are a customer or another Business Partner who would benefit from the Support of IBM Application Access on Windows Terminal Servers, please vote for the following Idea:
The optimism, high hopes and anticipation for the Domino v10 was clearly not missing at the Bleed Yellow Party, the night before the official Domino v10 Launch event. The party was fully booked, and I really liked the event. Having everybody, people from IBM, HCL and Domino Enthusiasts, under the one roof before a big event like this felt great. A big thumbs up to DNUG for organizing this.
The Domino v10 Premiere was held at the Kap Europa Congress Centre, look at the entrance:
Pretty neat if you ask me.
After the overview of the v10, Luis Guirigay showed us what is possible with Domino 10. Integration of Domino Applications with Office365, which looks great by the way, new features in IBM Verse on-Premises, Notes Client on Apple iOS (remarkable how good and clean this looks), “Webinized” Domino Applications with Teamworkr (which will be part of the Domino offering) and Domino Integration with Watson Workspace, Slack and Microsoft Teams.
And then some slides with features for the Administration and Maintenance.
With IBM Domino/Notes 10 Beta 2 released recently, I am extremely excited about the new version. I think that Domino and Notes was never at better health, we have many new features announced, many off them implemented in the Beta version and the marketing has gotten a lot better.
If you are interested about the new features and the Domino and Notes roadmap, feel free to contact me. Look, I also have my first IBM Badge to brag about it. 😉
I am also very happy for being allowed to be present at the World Premiere of the Domino V10 in Frankfurt on the 9th of October. There will be a live-stream available of the event, so make sure you registered.
