We've all heard the swirl around IBM's reversal on releasing a Domino 10 (a really good reversal of a really bad decision), but let's not forget until 10 ships it's still feature packs that distribute new features and fixes and feature pack 10 (FP10) is a biggie.....

FP10 completes IBM's promise to finally provide Java 8 in both the client and DDE (new in FP10) and on the server (release in FP8...I think....). So because of this quite massive change (and Eclipse has been updated to 4 dot something from 3 dot something) I would test this more than I generally would especially if you are doing anything Ecplisy or Javery stuff in your clients or apps.


Also if you are updating your Traveler server to Domino 9.0.1 FP10 be sure to install Traveler 9.0.1.20 first!. You have been warned.


Get your FP10 here

It is also worth pointing out that with FP9 there were new templates released for mail9, pubnames and pernames. These are not installed when you upgrade to FP9 or FP10 and need to be installed separately. These add some new features like running mail rules on existing mail.

Thanks for posting this, Darren! I find it a little odd (and disconcerting) that I have not had ANY kind of notification from IBM that this is even out. Nothing posted on any of the IBM blogs either.

That doesn't exactly give me a warm fuzzy.

Separating the release of the templates from the installation files will result in fewer customer sites being on up-to-date templates.

@1, Nicki, IBM did release this earlier this week (or late last) that outlines the fixes and features that were coming in FP10 { http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/fixlist.nsf/WhatsNew/86a6c4ba892f0218852581fc0067b4f4?OpenDocument }

The notifications IBM send to customers about these releases always seems a week or two behind the FC release. Not sure if this is by design or not.

@2, Jay, I do not disagree.
