By now you must have seen the announcement about the release of Feature Pack 10 for IBM (Lotus) Notes release 9.0.1, typically called 9.0.1FP10. You can find the release note here -> http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/fixlist.nsf/WhatsNew/86a6c4ba892f0218852581fc0067b4f4?OpenDocument
I wanted to highlight some key features released as part of this feature pack:
- Java 1.8 -- As mentioned in the Release Notice, the run-time was already included earlier, but there is now a compile time support for this. This will ensure you get all the latest fixes (including security vulnerability fixes) which are part of Java 1.8. A win-win for your applications and for your users
- Eclipse Platform upgrade to 4.6.2 -- Granted that once you install 901FP10, you will wonder what the difference is. The goal for this feature pack was to simply get the Eclipse upgrade completed. Since now the Notes Client is using the latest Eclipse, application developers can make use of this in their future applications. I believe this provides a latest platform for building more powerful Eclipse Plug-ins for the Notes Client.
- Embedded Sametime Upgrade -- Again, inclusion of the latest Sametime would ensure you have the latest Sametime , same as the standalone version.
- There are the usual list of fixes for problems reported by customers. Again, the goal of the team has been to include critical fixes in order to avoid building subsequent hot-fix for our customers.
All in all, this feature-pack will provide a foundation for better application development environment and further enhancements in the user interface as the base components have now been upgraded to their current versions.
