IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes
Chapter 1 - About this release
Lotus Notes, Domino Designer, Domino Server, Domino Web Access, Domino Access for Outlook, Domino Offline Services (DOLS),
Domino for z/OS, Domino for System i

Lotus Notes
Lotus Notes 8 Beta: Client overview
IBM Lotus Notes 8 offers major enhancements to the core functionality of Lotus Notes, and adds
innovative new features which represent a major shift in the way people communicate and collaborate.
Lotus Notes 8 presents the end user with a dynamic work environment which can be tailored to the user's
roles and responsibilities. Built on IBM's version of the Eclipse Rich Client Platform, Lotus Notes 8 was
developed on a componentized service-oriented architecture (SOA). As a result, Lotus Notes 8 is more
extensible and, as a server-managed client, less time-consuming to administer.
The core functions of Lotus Notes - Mail, Calendaring, and Contacts - have been enhanced in a variety of
ways to increase personal productivity and effectiveness. Lotus Notes 8 includes new ways to sort, filter,
and preview e-mail; tools for managing personal calendars and interactions with others have been
improved; and persistent access to collaborative tools helps keep critical information and frequently used
applications at the user's fingertips.
1
IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes
Three innovative new capabilities in Lotus Notes 8 dramatically increase personal and organizational
productivity:
Composite applications - Composite applications combine components from multiple applications into
a single, role-based work environment. With support for composite applications, Lotus Notes 8 offers
greater flexibility to organizations seeking to rapidly respond to competitive markets. Combining
multiple technologies into a single application provides significant business value by enabling
companies to protect and extend their existing assets with increasing degrees of flexibility and to
respond quickly and cost-effectively to their emerging business requirements, with applications that
are significantly easier to create than those of alternative application development environments.
Composite applications can be composed of any combination of Notes applications and
Eclipse-based components. When components are interconnected in such a fashion, data that is
changed in one application affects the corresponding data and views in connected
applications/components.
Productivity tools - Lotus Notes 8 comes with a complete set of integrated productivity tools for
creating, editing, and sharing a variety of document types. The productivity tools include Lotus
Documents (word processing), Lotus Spreadsheets, and Lotus Presentations.
Activities (limited availability) - Lotus Notes 8 is built to provide activity-centric computing, which lets
users organize, navigate, manage, and share information based on specific projects or team
activities. Activity-centric computing organizes tasks and projects by associating multiple types of
communications and resources into a cohesive grouping.
Note: To take full advantage of the Notes 8 Mail and Calendar experience, you need to upgrade to the
Notes 8 Mail template. To take full advantage of composite applications and Activities, see the Installation
notes section of these release notes to learn what server products you need to install.
Besides increasing end-user productivity, these new software innovations in Lotus Notes 8 let developers
combine their existing Lotus Notes applications with line-of-business application components to solve
specific business problems.
More specific information about the new capabilities in Lotus Notes 8 is provided below.
User interface
The Lotus Notes 8 user interface has been re-designed to greatly enhance usability. Some of the
highlights of the new user interface include:
z
Consolidated user preferences
z
The new Open button provides a drop-down menu with quick access to all your bookmarks and
frequently used applications. You can access the Open button from within any Notes 8 screen.
z
The sidebar provides easy access to Sametime Contacts (optional), Feeds, Day At-A-Glance,
and Activities (limited availability in this beta release).
z
Intelligent addressing for improved typeahead, based on your collaboration history.
z
Lotus Notes 8 supports common keyboard and mouse shortcuts and gestures, including the
selection of multiple messages using the Control key and the left-mouse button.
2
IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes
z
The new user interface gives users greater flexibility to view open messages and other
documents in Lotus Notes 8:



Flat tabs. You can view each item as a tab.
Group tabs. You can view each application as a tab.

Mail
z
Lotus Notes 8 Mail offers visual clues for linking messages with associated threads. Threaded
e-mails can be gathered together and presented at the view level. Users can easily expand mail
threads and see all messages related to a specific topic. A new brief preview message feature
allows users to quickly see information contained in individual mail messages.
z
Users now have the option of previewing messages vertically or horizontally.
z
By double-clicking on an item, users can launch the item in a separate window. A user can then
interact with open messages and other Notes elements more easily.
z
Users have greater control to toggle Lotus Notes mail fields on or off. For example, users can
select or deselect the "bcc:" field in the Lotus Notes memo form.
z
Message recall capability
z
Improved rendering of HTML messages
Calendar
z
Unprocessed invitations appear as "ghosted" or highlighted entries in the monthly calendar view.
Users can simply double-click on the highlighted date to accept, decline, or counter the invitation.
z
When scheduling conflicts arise, the meeting chairperson can deselect non-critical attendees to
find dates and times that accommodate the remaining attendees.
Contacts
z
Business card-like views for displaying individual contact information.
z
Contact records can include a photograph of the person.
z
Instant messaging chats can be initiated from the Contact view.
z
Contact delegation to allow others access to your list of personal contacts.
z
Drop-down addressing and the "Recent Contacts" view in Contacts presents a list of people you
have recently collaborated with to speed the addressing of outbound messages.
z
"Collaboration History" provides an easy way to see documents that have been recently 
collaborated on with specific people.
3
IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes
Productivity tools
z
Support the OASIS Open Document Format (ODF), an international standard for sharing and
editing editable documents. These open standards-based applications give users and
organizations a choice of file formats and frees them from proprietary vendor formats.
z
Can also open, edit, and save documents in certain Microsoft Office formats.
z
SmartSuite formats can be imported to the productivity tools through an included filter.
Composite applications
z
End users can access composite applications from within the Lotus Notes interface.
z
Organizations can deploy composite applications made up of only Notes applications or they can
create composite applications using a variety of component types including Eclipse/Java
applications.
z
Composite applications in Lotus Notes 8 can be used online or offline.
z
This beta release provides three sample composite applications, and gets you started creating
your own composite applications.
Activities (limited availability in this beta release )
z
E-mail, instant messaging chats, documents, web pages, and images are grouped together under
the activity or project to which they are related.
z
Graphical, hierarchal format makes it easier to refer to past work, visualize project status, and
discover opportunities for further progress.
z
Users can quickly create new activities or access existing activities via the Activities viewer.
z
Team members can edit documents, make comments and add information as needed.
z
Activities can be searched and filtered.
More features
For a more detailed listing of Lotus Notes 8 features, see the About this Release > New Features section

Lotus Notes
Reporting Notes 8 Beta issues and problems
If you experience any problems installing or using Lotus Notes 8 Beta, we want to hear from you in the
form of a software problem report. Information about what to include in the problem report and the
process by which you can submit a problem report to IBM Lotus are provided below. 
Information to include in the problem report
The problem report should provide as much information as possible to recreate the problem. This includes
the following:
1.
As much build and platform related information as is relevant
2.
Detailed steps to reproduce the problem
3.
Actual test case contents, or links to the test cases
4.
Screen shots if applicable showing relevant messages
5.
All of the supporting logs
6.
All environment variables in printed list form (for example, type "set" into a DOS command window on
the test machine and provide the resulting printed list of ENV variables)
What logs and files do I need to attach?
The answer is all of them. The best way to do this is to use IBM Support Assistant (ISA).
Preferred Option - Running the Integrate d IBM Support Assistant (ISA) from within Notes 8 Beta to
create problem reports
Use the integrated collector to gather the information. From Notes 8 Beta, start the IBM Support Assistant,
select Service along the top menu, then Collect Data. Make sure that all collectors are marked to
generate data. Once collected, attach the results to the problem report. By using this collector, all logs are
terminated properly allowing for easier handling by the recipient. Also be sure to attach a list of all
environment variables in printed list form (for example, type "set" in a DOS command window on the test
machine and also send the resulting printed list of ENV variables).
The integrated IBM Support Assistant is described in Notes 8 Beta online Help by clicking Help > Support
> IBM Support Assistant.
Secondary Option - Running a Standalone IBM Support Assistant (ISA) to create problem reports
If the integrated collector is not available, then second option is to use the standalone collector.
From the <installdir>\rcp directory, run the startcollector.bat (Windows), or startcollector.sh (Linux) to
gather the information.
Once collected, attach the results to the problem report along with a list of all environment variables in
printed list form (for example, type "set" into a DOS command window on the test machine and also send
the resulting printed list of ENV variables).
Third Option - Manual Collection
Collect the following files: (see "Where is the Workspace?" section below for locating the <workspace>) 
z
<workspace>\.config directory contents
z
<workspace>\.config\org.eclipse.update contents including subdirectories
z
<workspace>\logs directory contents
On Windows
z
%TEMP%\rcpInstallerTemp.properties
z
%TEMP%\rcp_install.log
On Linux
z
<installdir>\rcp_install.log
z
Environment variables list
6
IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes
Note: On Notes 8 Beta, the files referencing <installdir>\rcp are located in <installdir>\framework\rcp.
z
<installdir>\rcp\plugin_customization.ini
z
<installdir>\rcp\rcplauncher.properties
z
<installdir>\rcp\deploy directory contents
Then zip them up and attach to the problem report. Please note in the problem report that these were
manually collected. 
The following is representative of the files that would be collected based upon above (and what is 
collected by ISA):
<workspace >\.config\args.properties
<workspace >\.config\config.ini
<workspacw >\.config\org.eclipse.update
<workspace >\.config\rcpinstall.properties
<workspace >\.config\org.eclipse.update\error_recovery.log
<workspace >\.config\org.eclipse.update\history
<workspace >\.config\org.eclipse.update\install.log
<workspace >\.config\org.eclipse.update\platform.xml

<workspace >\.config\org.eclipse.update\history\1170947431000.xml
<workspace >\.config\org.eclipse.update\history\1170947596000.xml
<workspace >\logs\error-log-0.xml
<workspace >\logs\error-log-1.xml
<workspace >\logs\Log_Viewer.xml
<workspace >\logs\trace-log-0.xml
<workspace >\logs\trace-log-1.xml
<workspace >\logs\Trace_Viewer.xml
<workspace >\logs\Viewer_Translations.js
%TEMP%\rcpInstallerTemp.properties
%TEMP%\rcp_install.log
<installdir >\rcp\plugin_customization.ini
<installdir >\rcp\rcplauncher.properties
<installdir >\rcp\deploy\install.xml
<installdir >\rcp\deploy\platform_plugin_customization.ini
<installdir >\rcp\deploy\provisioning.log
Where is the workspace?
On Windows platforms, the workspace is going to be located based on environment variable settings.
z
%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\IBM\RCP%rcp.install.id%%USERNAME%
.
z
If
HOMEDRIVE
and
HOMEPATH
are not set, then
%USERPROFILE%\IBM\RCP%rcp.install.id%%USERNAME% is used.
On Linux platforms, the workspace is going to be located based on environment variable settings
z
$USER_HOME/IBM/RCP/$rcp.install.id/$USER
On both platforms, the workspace may have also been specified on the command line such as
rcplauncher -data c:\temp
The value of rcp.install.id is specified as a property in the <installdir
>\rcp\rcplauncher.properties file (<installdir
>\framework\rcp\rcplauncher.properties on Notes 8 Beta).
