Lotus Notes/Domino 8.0.2 Fix Pack 3 Release Notice & “Top 20” Fix List

November 5, 2009

IBM Lotus announces the release of Notes/Domino 8.0.2 Fix Pack 3, a scheduled Fix Pack of a limited number of low-risk, high-impact fixes to help customers safely avoid known issues. IBM strongly recommends that customers running Notes/Domino 8.0.2 upgrade to 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. Future Fix Packs are always cumulative and contain all of the fixes from previous ones.

As with 8.0.2 Fix Packs 1 and 2, Notes/Domino 8.0.2 Fix Pack 3 addresses defects in both the Client and Server. As with all Fix Packs, 8.0.2 Fix Pack 3 is language-independent and may be applied on any language version of Notes/Domino 8.0.2. (Note: Multilingual User Interface (MUI) packs for Notes 8.0.2.x should be installed before fixes. See technote #1404436 for more details.)

Fixes contained in this Maintenance Release

Notes/Domino 8.5.1 contains fixes for approximately 1200 known issues, of which the “top 20” are listed below. This list was compiled to identify the issues that most significantly impact customers. Issues were measured by the SPR severity level, the number of hotfixes given out, the number of customers reporting the issue, and the business impact to customers. For a complete list of SPRs fixed in Notes/Domino 8.5.1, see the By Release view of the Notes/Domino Fix List.

Note: A plus symbol + before the SPR number indicates a fix for a regression bug. A regression bug is an issue that was introduced in a Maintenance Release that did not exist in previous releases of that code stream. For example, a bug that appears in R8.5 but did not exist in R8.0.2 is a regression.
