IBM Announced yesterday the general availability of IBM Notes 9.0.1 release as well as IBM Notes Browser Plug-in 9.0.1 and IBM iNotes 9.0.1. Lots of new features included in this update release, mainly to take care of key customer requirements. One that I would like to write here about is the most asked capability in the IBM Notes Browser Plug-in.
Access to Mail Template based applications - including mail-in databases
This was identified for a good number of customers as a blocker for their deployment of IBM Notes Browser Plug-in. In order to prevent Mailfile from opening, we probably went too far and disabled access to any database which was based on the mail template. And we found out from all your emails that most of you had used the mail template as a starting point in creating new application.
Well, we are now opening access to these applications inside Notes Browser Plug-in. You can freely open these as you wish and work with them. The only application we try to restrict is your mail file and which we re-direct to IBM iNotes (and I strongly recommend taking a look at 9.0.1 iNotes, lots of features you would love). So there you go. This should take care of any blocker you might have and I expect with this removed, and access to mail database in the back-end API, all of your workflow applications should now work.
Please go ahead and give this a try and let us know how it's working.
