Right now I received a helpful hint from Oliver Busse that you can import ICS files not within an action but with the “normal” import function of HCL Notes ( File / Import ) and switch over to Calendar File (.ics ):
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.

Domino 11.0.1 Auto Update (AUT) servers support future upgrades of HCL Client Application Access (HCAA) clients.
Configuration enhancements for DAOS tier 2 storage
Domino 11.0.1 introduces the following enhancements to DAOS tier 2 storage.
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.
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.
