IBM Notes Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 Preliminary Fix List and New Features

Beginning with 9.0.1 FP8, fix packs have been renamed to feature packs. To ensure quality, these feature packs still have a high focus on addressing high impacting defects. Where possible, these features are optional enabled to minimize risk. The same packaging, architecture and install kits used in previous fix packs remain in use for feature packs.
The IBM Notes Domino Preliminary Fix List for Feature Pack 8 can be found here.

  • NBP replaced with ICAA - There is no NBP (Notes Browser Plugin) shipped with 9.0.1 FP8. This has been replaced with ICAA (IBM Client Application Access). For more information, see IBM Client Application Access V1.0.1 documentation
  • Notes Client on Linux - There is no Notes client for Linux shipped with 9.0.1 FP8. This client platform has been discontinued and customers are encouraged to move to Windows or Mac.
  • Domino Server on Linux32 and AIX32 - There is no Domino Server for Linux32 and AIX32 shipped with 9.0.1 FP8. This server platform has been discontinued and customers are encouraged to move to the 64-bit platforms. Windows 32 bit remains a shipped and support platform.
  • Windows Server 2016 Support - (SPR #SVROAEPS4R)

New Features in IBM Domino 9.0.1 Social Edition Feature Pack 8
The documentation in Knowledgebase will be updated with these new features to coincide with the ship date of 9.0.1 FP8

Optionally Move Views outside of NSF  for Increased data store in NSF
This feature is useful for large databases and provides the following benefits:
A smaller database file size, to avoid reaching the 64GB limitation.
Faster database backup and restore.
Better performance by allowing concurrent access to database and views.

Java Upgrade to 1.8. 
The Java run time environment provided with Domino has been upgraded to Java JRE version 1.8 to provide you with access to the latest features.

Optionally Increase Document Summary Data (SPR #AKNX64TLRS APARID: LO04193)
You can increase the document summary data limit on Notes 9 databases to 16MB from 64K. (The size limit for a single field remains 32 K.)

Add support for ADFS 3.0 and update the corresponding Cookbook instructions for configuration.

Optionally Add Show Options: "Group By Date" And "Beginning Of Message", To Desktop Policy Settings (SPR #JSTN98BP3T APARID: LO75595)
Administrators can add the notes.ini setting EnableGroupByDate=1 on mail servers to enable the Show > Group By Date option in all mail files.

Optionally Retain MIME formatting when forwarding or replying to internet messages
A notes.ini setting is now available for Notes Standard clients to retain MIME message formatting when users reply to or forward messages received from the internet. Without this setting, MIME messages are converted to Notes Rich Text which can cause some MIME formatting to be lost.

Optionally Enable displaying internet addresses in mail and calendar documents
You can enable internet addresses rather than Notes addresses to display in the Notes client mail and calendar. For example, display rather than Samantha Daryn/Renovations@Renovations. To enable this feature, add the following setting to the notes.ini file on a Notes client $INETADDRESSFIXUP=1
