Notes 10 client - what happened to Linux and Mac clients?

Hi,

I have installed the Notes 10 client on Windows and I must say it seems like a downgrade: built-in viewers removed, 1-2-3 import filters removed but no replacement (Excel filters would be appreciated). Also: will there be no MAC or Linux clients?

Regards,

Kenneth

G'Day Kenneth

I have to say I'm jealous that you have been able to 'evaluate' the Dom/Notes X install.

Can I be rude & ask if you are on the Beta program ?

I'm in South Oz & we have not been able to get a Beta copy 'Yet' !!!

Thanks for the heads up

re: Notes 10 client - what happened to Linux and Mac clients?

Hi there,

well as we have subscription on Domino/Notes, I am running the released 10.0 version. However on the native Notes client side, I can't see anything that justifies the jump in version number. 

I will need to keep a 9.0.1 client handy to be able to continue my workflow...

Regards,

Kenneth

Feeling the same...

Although the 'cool' background feature is OK, it dramatically increases the size of your chicklets, reducing the workspace screen real estate.
I manage a huge volume of databases across several customers, and hate to scroll to find a database icon on my workspace tabs (and I've run out of tabs).

It's OK though - You can disable the dynamic background by simply enabling the 'textured workspace'.

 

I wonder why the native viewers were removed? I noticed that as well, and thought I had done something wrong during the upgrade!

 

I was sure that I heard somewhere that there were going to be Excel filters added - Perhaps that's still to come (like Nomad)?!

1-2-3 import can be enabled!
1-2-3 import can be enabled with the notes.ini setting
IncludeOldFileTypes=1


Hope this helps!


Please report if it works, I don't have any samples to test with...


Kind regards,


Lars

Enabling 1-2-3 import

Thanks Lars!

Yes, the option to import 1-2-3 files into a view came back after adding adding the option into notes.ini.

Regards,

Kenneth
