After the successful launch of HCL Domino v12.0.1 in December 2021, we are approaching the next release milestone: Today, we are happy to announce the new early access program for HCL Domino Danube!

You are invited to join the early access program to beta test our latest release and give feedback to our development teams.

We’re calling on our community to share honest, effective, and thoughtful reviews and testing of our software product. Your input is always essential for developing our products, and we will continue to listen to you every step of the way.

What you can expect from this first drop of Domino Danube:

HCL Domino Server

For the Domino server, there are several enhancements waiting for you: 

  • Anti-virus scanning for message attachments 
    This will allow you to set up HCL Domino to work with an ICAP protocol server to scan for viruses in mail message attachments. 
  • Windows VSS support in Domino backup 
    Domino now provides a native Windows VSS writer for snapshot backups for use with the Domino backup and restore. VSS writers are designed for application-aware VSS snapshots. 
  • DAOS improvements 
    A new server task, DAOS Encryption Manager (daosencmgr), can be used to ensure DAOS objects on an HCL Domino server use a consistent encryption key.
  • XPages: upgrade to CKEditor 
    CKEditor, used in iNotes, is now version 4.18.0. Previously it was version 4.5.6.1. The new CKEditor version is also used in XPages.
  • New version of OpenSSL 
    HCL Domino now uses OpenSSL version 3.0.1. (it used OpenSSL version 1.1.1a previously).
  • Support for 5.x Linux kernels 
  • “Tell Domino support” console command 
    You can use the new tell domino support command to collect diagnostic files recently created in the IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT directory into a .zip file to provide to support.
  • 256bit AES Encryption for database 
    The new default selection for database encryption is 128-bit AES. Previously it was Strong Encryption.
  • Administration Quick enhancements 
    Administration Quick (AdminQ) has been enhanced in Domino Danube.
  • Domino directory user interface enhancements 
    These Domino directory user interface enhancements are added for improved usability. 

… Plus, several other minor changes and performance improvements.

For a complete list of changes and improvements, please refer to the Domino Danube release notes.

And this is just the first beta drop! We are going to release even more features and Notes client builds in the coming stages of the early access program. We are planning to have monthly drops until the end of September (subject to change).
