Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino Release 5.0.11 Maintenance Release (MR)
January 24, 2003

Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino Release 5.0.11 Maintenance Release (MR)

The Notes and Domino Product Team is pleased to announce the availability of Release 5.0.11, which is the eleventh maintenance release of the R5.0x stream. The 5.0.10 -> 5.0.11 Notes Incremental Installer and Domino Incremental Installer are also available. Please refer to the MR/MU FAQ and the Download FAQ for details.

New Features in Release 5.0.11
Client feature
Windows Office XP supported for the Notes client
Beginning in Release 5.0.11, Lotus Notes adds support for the Windows Office XP platform.

Programmability
New APIs - SECVerifyPassword and SECHashPassword
The SECVerifyPassword and SECHashPassword functions have been added to support the "More Secure Internet Password" format for storing Internet passwords in the Domino Directory.

Notes and Domino Release 5.0.11 platform support
End of life for Domino Windows NT Alpha starting with 5.0.11
Domino for Microsoft Windows NT Alpha will no longer be updated starting with 5.0.11. This means that the last version of Domino for Windows NT Alpha is 5.0.10 and that no subsequent versions will be developed. Existing deployments of Domino 5.0.10 and Domino versions prior to 5.0.10 will continue to be fully supported on Windows NT Alpha. There is no plan or intent to support Windows NT Alpha in future versions of Domino.

End of life for Domino for Solaris Intel x.86 starting with 5.0.11
Domino for Solaris Intel x.86 will no longer be updated starting with 5.0.11. This means that the last version of Domino for Solaris Intel x.86 is 5.0.10 and that no subsequent versions will be developed. Existing deployments of Domino 5.0.10 and Domino versions prior to 5.0.10 will continue to be fully supported on Solaris Intel x.86. There is no plan or intent to support Solaris Intel x.86 in future versions of Domino 6 or later. We will continue to support Domino for Solaris SPARC, for Domino R5.0.x, and Domino 6.

Ending support for these platforms does not signify a change in the Lotus platform strategy. The Software Group at IBM and the Lotus team have long acknowledged that a heterogeneous platform strategy offers our customers the flexibility to deploy Domino within a complex, cross-platform infrastructure. This flexibility is valued by our customers, who frequently wrestle with the challenges of integrating applications on an infrastructure that spans multiple hardware and server operating system platforms.

The cross-platform support that we will continue to deliver with Domino is a powerful message that differentiates Lotus and Domino from Microsoft and Exchange.

Maintenance release schedules
Due to our concentrated, ongoing efforts to improve the collaborative features and applications of Notes and Domino, 5.0.11 addresses only critical fixes.

After 5.0.11 is released, the R5x maintenance releases will occur on a 6-month release schedule. This means that the Maintenance Release team plans on shipping a 5.0.12 maintenance release in a February 2003/Q1 timeframe.

The Notes and Domino 6 Maintenance Releases will adhere to a 4-month release schedule.
