Well, not really fix pack 25, more like "Upgrade Pack 1". It resolves a whole lot of issues inadvertently introduced moving from Quickr 8.2 to 8.5.x and add some oft requested features (internet site docs). Specifically addressed are the following (from Luis Benitez's blog):

  • Addition of the Folder Navigator for libraries with deep folder hierarchies and the Index
  • Improved preview for Microsoft Office file attachments and imported pages
  • Support for importing HTML
  • Display of an attachment's last modified date on Attachments tab
  • Simplified place creation process that eliminates the requirement of reauthentication
  • The ability for editors and authors to create folders in a place.
  • Support for Internet Site documents

(bold is my emphasis)

Watch out, as FP25 does have a new qp2.cab to that will need to be pushed out in most organizations. And a request to IBM, please enter the date added to the "Additional Information for special fixes" section so we can easily tell what is new in the qpconfig.xml or notes.ini files.

Fixes are cumulative and contain the following in addition to the above (and I'm including FP13 here as I missed that one myself):

In a customer specific place that has a Custom Form, when logged in as an owner or manager and going into a Room, that Custom Form is not shown, though it is shown for regular users.

Also handy is this little gem:
CLOH8PBCJ3 - When upgrading a place to 8.5.x, a document based off a custom form that contains an attachments field has the Connectors default action of opening the document in the browser. This is by design when importing documents based on a custom form.

To allow a document based off a custom form that contains a single attachment to be launched from the Connectors set the following notes.ini setting and restart your Quickr Domino server:

Then you must run ‘load qptool upgrade -f -a’ on the server to update the documents.

The upgraded documents with a single attachment will now appear in Connectors so that you can double click to open them.

Please note, if each document based off your custom form will only contain a single attachment, you should modify your custom form to remove the Attachments field and then add a Single Attachment field, this way newly created documents will have the default action of launching within the Connectors.

Oh, how I wish that had been in since 8.5 shipped. But that must surely be one of the longest notes.ini settings in history......

I've received few minutes ago this technote, about an issue for QuickR FP 25 and "Imported Docs".

Here's the link:
