Exciting News: IBM Domino AppDev Pack 1.0.1 Is Now Available on Windows and Verse on-Premises 1.0.7 Has iCal Import
On March 26, 2019, IBM shipped IBM Domino AppDev Pack 1.0.1 and Verse On-Premises 1.0.7.
What’s New in IBM Domino AppDev Pack version 1.0.1
The Domino AppDev Pack adds Node.js support to IBM Domino version 10.0.1. It includes three related components:
- A server-side component called Proton. An administrator installs and configures Proton on one or more Domino servers. If you are a Domino administrator, start with the Administration Overview page.
- A Node.js module called domino-db. A developer adds this module to a Node.js application. The domino-db module uses Proton to perform bulk operations on documents in a server database. If you are a developer, start with the API Documentation page.
- A Node.js based service called IAM (Identity and Access Management). An administrator can deploy it aside Domino to enable remote applications to access Domino resources through RESTFul APIs with standard OAuth2.0 authorization flows. For interests, start with the IAM Overview page.
Version 1.0.1 includes the following new features:
- IAM service is officially released.
- Microsoft Windows support. Both Proton and IAM can now be deployed to Windows in addition to Linux.
- Compute with form support for create, read and update operations. See Compute with form for details.
- The ability to read and write $REF items. For more information, see NOTEREF_LIST.
- A test script for verifying your connection to Proton. For more information, see Proton Test Script.
- Node.js 10.x support. This version of domino-db was tested with Node.js 10.x. Previous versions of Node.js are deprecated.
IBM Verse® On-Premises 1.0.7 provides the following new features and enhancements
- Enhancements to the calendar event design preview in release 1.0.7
In IBM Verse 1.0.7, there are several enhancements to the calendar event design preview feature.
- Enhancements to importing internet calendar events
In this release, you can import internet calendar events from an .ics file that is attached to a mail message, in addition to importing from an .ics file on your computer. Also, using either import method, you can import up to 100 events from one .ics file. The previous limit was 50 events.
- Read messages marked as “Prevent copying” or “Keep Private”
When IBM® Notes® users and IBM iNotes® users send “private” messages that cannot be copied, IBM Verse users can now read those messages. Previously, the messages could be read only through Notes or iNotes.
- Attachment name used as message subject if no subject provided
If a new message with an attachment doesn’t include a subject, the attachment name (minus the file extension) is used as the subject. If the message has multiple attachments, the first attachment listed is used.
- Option to download all attachments at once
When there are multiple attachments in a message, a Download All option is available to download all of them at once. Previously, you had to download each attachment separately.
- Improved integration of forwarding addresses
When a person has a forwarding address – used to deliver mail to an external address – the person’s forwarding address and primary directory address can now both be shown.
- Filter by unread messages after searching
You can now filter search results to show only unread messages. Previously, you could show unread messages only for the entire Inbox or an entire folder.
