New Feature
This build introduces the IBM Address Book Provider, which implements functionality similar to the existing LDAP directory feature already in the product. Additionally, however, Address Book Provider includes distribution lists and other items that may not be available in an LDAP directory. This feature is especially useful for Cloud customers who are fully hosted and do not maintain a separate LDAP directory.

Customers either on-prem or in cloud who want to take advantage of this feature must create new profiles and re-sync their mail as this feature is not available for existing profiles. For more information, see the following technote 1995126 - "Q&A: IBM Address Book Provider in IMSMO."
