New features and enhancements in Notes and Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7

Recommended Resources


New features and enhancements in IBM Notes and Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7 include support for Citrix XenApp 7.7, calendar improvements such as Google calendar overlay for iNotes, icon resolution improvements, and Domino port encryption enhancements.


Terminal services

Citrix XenApp 7.7 is now supported.


  • Administrators now enable the Google Calendar overlay feature through Google Calendar API v3. To enable this feature, generate an API key and a Client ID. Then add that information to the notes.ini file on the mail server. For more information, see the technote How to enable Google Calendar overlay on a Domino mail server. After the feature is enabled on the server, users can add their Google calendar to their main iNotes calendar.
  • When a Microsoft Outlook user sends a calendar invitation to a Notes user, under some conditions the invitation arrives as an email. In this case, the invitation is now formatted correctly as a calendar invitation rather than as simple email message.

User interface
For icon enhancements, see the technote Notes icons enhanced for display in high-resolution monitors.

Fix Pack 7 provides authentication and port encryption enhancements that are controlled through the following new server notes.ini settings:

  • PORT_ENC_ADV controls the level of port encryption and enables the use of AES tickets.
  • TICKET_ALG_SHA controls which cryptographic algorithm to use when constructing tickets. HMAC-SHA 256 is enabled by default.

For more information, see the technote Authentication and port encryption enhancements in Notes and Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7.
