Today Luis Guirigay, Barry Rosen and Thomas Hampel showed us the HCL Domino & Notes Beta 3 of the Version 12. Guess what!? It is available on the HCL Flexnet site for download as of now! 🙂
I will give my best to list the most important takeaways from the today’s webinar in the following.
This is the last of the planed Beta releases before the global launch of the HCL Domino and Notes Version 12.
The latest beta release is available in the following languages:
As of HCL Domino version 12, additional Linux server distributions are supported.
HCL Notes 64-Bit Basic Client for Windows is available for download, a release of HCL Notes 64-Bit Standard Windows Client is planned in the future.
I was especially excited as I have seen the following slide:
The Active Directory Password sync looked perfect and polished in a Demo. It takes less than 5 seconds to sync a user’s password, since it was changed in Active Directory, to Domino.
The Backup Solution also looks great, the whole backup and restore process can be controlled inside one new Domino Database. In a Demo, the restore process certainly looked fast and easy, Thomas restored some deleted Mails and Folders with ease.
The backup and restore process should now be possible with most backup software vendors.
There are also some news about licensing, the CCB/CCX Licenses can now be tracked easily inside Domino, no matter how complicated your environment is.
HCL Nomad Web will also be publicly available with HCL Domino and Notes v12.
If you would like to participate in the Beta program, you can do so, HCL is open about it and they will welcome any feedback. You will need to register for an Account and afterwards you will be able to access the beta forum.
And last but not least, make space in your calendar for the HCL Domino and Sametime Launch Event on June the 7th.
Happy Testing! 🙂
