Lotus Notes/Domino 8.5.2 Fix Pack 4 Release Notice
December 2, 2011
Notes/Domino 8.5.2 Fix Pack 4 is a scheduled Fix Pack of low-risk, high-impact fixes to help customers safely avoid known issues. IBM strongly recommends that customers running Notes/Domino 8.5.2.x this latest Fix Pack since it addresses a small percentage of defects that impact the broadest set of customers. Fix Packs are released periodically between Maintenance Releases to provide a greater level of stability for customer environments. They go through the same level of fix, regression and interoperability testing that occurs with Maintenance Releases. Fix Packs are always cumulative and contain all of the fixes from previous ones.
IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.3 software puts you on a solid path to becoming a social business. Upgrade Pack 1 adds to the significant new social capabilities introduced in this exciting new release.
IBM® Lotus® Domino® Document Manager (DDM) has been providing customers with document management services for more than a decade. DDM is now being replaced by other, more advanced software.
IBM has announced that it will officially end standard DDM support services on 30 September 2012. The general replacement product is IBM Lotus Quickr® 8.5.1 for Domino (hereafter called Quickr Domino). All DDM customers who are current with their maintenance and support are entitled to the Quickr Domino license and it is on their Passport Advantage account. Other no-cost entitlements are also available, including IBM FileNet Content Manager Collaboration Edition and IBM Content Manager Collaboration Editon (contact your IBM Account Representative or Business Partner to have the DDM Program Office contacted for an entitlement change). Other similar products include IBM Connections Content Edition and Docova (from business partner DLI.tools).
As a new-generation collaboration software, however, Quickr Domino differs from DDM, which is only for document management. To help you better understand these differences, in this article we compare Quickr Domino with DDM with respect to the following features:
- Hierarchical structure
- Security settings
- Document management model
- Document management functions
- User interface
- Other features
IBM Lotus® Domino® 8.5.3 and IBM Lotus Notes® 8.5.3 have been optimized to reduce the transactions from the client to the server. These optimizations yield a reduction in server resources, thus lowering the Total Cost of Ownership. This white paper shows the reductions in processor and disk utilization achieved with large numbers of Notes 8.5.3 clients running on a single Domino 8.5.3 server.
In this white paper
- N85mail and N853mail workloads defined
- Test configurations
- AIX test results
- Linux on System z results

The following are the electronic software delivery dates for the most recent releases of Lotus Notes and Domino.
Perhaps the biggest news around the release of Domino 8.5.3 is the free entitlement to Lotus Connections Files and Profiles. This is really big news. I can’t think of a single customer of mine that does not have some method of sharing files and some method of providing access to a directory of employees. The fact that they now are entitled to the foundation of what is arguably the best business social networking software on the market should have them all planning for the upgrade. While the entitlement to the software is free, there are still costs involved in implementing Lotus Connections. This article will help get you started with the planning process.
Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino 8.5.3, which was announced in October 2011, is the latest maintenance release for version 8.5. This scheduled maintenance release contains both defect fixes and new features. IBM recommends upgrading to the latest Maintenance Release and Fix Pack combination for your version to receive the broadest set of fixes available.
