Also take a look of what´s new in 11.0.1 and in Sametime V11:


  • New command to run Domino Server Setup from Windows for IBM i
    • On IBM i, Flexera InstallAnywhere 2018 is the platform used for the Domino Server Setup wizard on a Windows computer. As a result, the command to run setup from a Windows computer on IBM i is now domwzd.bat. Previously it was domwzd.exe. In other respects, installation and setup on IBM i remain the same as in Domino 11.0.
  • Domino for Linux Docker container
    • HCL Domino 11.0.1 includes a Docker-compatible Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI) of Domino that is part of your entitlement and available for download through the HCL Licensing Portal. HCL Domino 11.0.1 is pre-installed on this image, allowing you to deploy Domino servers as containers with just a few commands.

  • Support for Subject Alternative Name (SAN) field in X.509 certificates
  • Domino 11.0.1 now supports the use of X.509 certificates that contain a Subject Alternative Name (SAN) field. Certificates with a SAN field (extension) no longer require a Subject field containing a distinguished name for TLS connections.
    Domino Web server support for Server Name Indication (SNI)
  • Domino 11.0.1 Web servers now support the Server Name Indication (SNI) extension to the Transport Security Layer (TLS) protocol.
  • New Notes IDs must have 1024-bit or stronger RSA keys
    • When you register new Notes users, you must select at least a 1024-bit RSA key size for their Notes IDs.
  • Register multiple Active Directory users in Domino
    • When you use the Directory Sync feature, in Domino 11.0.1 you can now select multiple Active Directory users to register in Domino. Previously you needed to select and register each Active Directory user individually.
  • Configuring a custom image for the Notes Workspace background
    • Use the notes.ini setting Load_Workspace_image to deploy a custom image to display in your users’ Notes Workspace background.
  • Disabling SwiftFile
    • SwiftFile is integrated with HCL Notes starting in Notes 11.0.1. However, you can use the notes.ini setting DisableSwiftFile=1 to prevent your users from using it.
  • MarvelClient Essentials version 11.0.3
    • The version of MarvelClient Essentials from panagenda that comes with Notes and Domino has been updated. The installer is version 11.0.3 which contains template version 20200204 and binary version 11.0.6.

New browser installed

Today I installed a new browser ( for me ) and for now it´s working very fine:


It´s running very fast and I could not see any troubles so far. Therefore it´s my preferred browser by now. What features does Brave have ?


And the best is: it´s free and also available for MacOSX and Linux.

Webinar: HCL Volt Beta

Today HCL held a webinar about the current Beta phase of HCL Volt. For all who didn´t hear about this new option to create web-based applications > What is HCL Volt ??

  • A new low-code way to build apps on Domino
  • Great at building forms and forms-based workflow apps
  • Both a design and runtime environment
  • A way to augment existing Domino applications

But what´s not the focus of HCL Volt ??

  • A way to modernize existing Domino apps
  • A solution for pro-coders
  • A way to build apps for the Notes client

The current beta release is on version: Volt Version

This version can be downloaded till April 13th. If you still want to register for the beta you can do this here. So this is a very short beta phase because the GA of HCL Volt currently is scheduled for April 2020. The further development of HCL Volt is planned to be quarterly updates and with continous delivery.

So HCL is – like with HCL Notes/Domino, HCL Connections and also HCL Sametime – listening to the customers which features should be available and will try to deliver those ideas which can be posted either on the HCL Volt Beta forum or on the AHA portal.
