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.
You want to track the various Notes client installations throughout your environment. The Names and Address book Person document does track client versions but it tracks all client versions for a user in no particular order.
This is a LotusScript example of how to track each user’s current Notes client version based on the last time they opened their mail application. It is important to note that some users may share a workstation or have access to multiple workstations. Also this solution is dependent on users periodically closing and opening their mail application. This example utilizes a central database on the user’s home mail server. The database has a simple form with fields that track User Name, Current Client Version, and Machine Name.
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.
