Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.2 is really growing up. While it still does not say that Traveler supports the Droid, the enhancements to the iPhone experience looks like it will make it a real contender for former Blackberry users. (Like me) The list of new features, security enhancements, and additional functionality are a very welcome addition to me. On August 23rd, IBM posted to the product wiki this article outlining the new features:
Features of particular interest to me are:
- Security policy enforcement for Apple devices
- Support for Meeting Invitations on Apple devices
- Automatic Lotus Notes Traveler client updates for Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 devices
- Server OS Support for Linux (RHEL5, SLES10, SLES11)
For details on each feature and the full list of what was added, follow the link provided and read the full article. There is also good information provided in the wiki to help ensure a successful deployment or upgrade. It appears that all documentation for LNT has been moved to the wiki as of 8.5.2, so do not go to the InfoCenter. The last bit of advice I would give, is to not forget about the Domino SMTP bug fix, especially if your LNT server routes it’s own mail and calendar responses.
