This fixpack should solve the iOS issues I mentioned in my previous post.
You should update your Traveler Server ASAP.

Here is a link to the Fixcentral Download

And here is a list to the complete fixlist

The issue for activities has been fixed and the two new iOS5 features are supported.

• Support Folder Management Features on Apple iOS 5 and Later Devices
• Support for Follow Up Flags on Apple Devices

A big THANK YOU to the Traveler team for this quick fix and also adding those new features.

Follow up flags work after installing the update, but creating a folder produces the error that the folder could not be created.

There are no error messages in the server console.

Do we have to reinstall the Traveler profile on the devices (iOS5, iPhone 4S)?

@Karsten @Daniel You need to enable the new enhanced folder mechanism in the NTSConfig first. For me it works like a charm.

@René: Thanks, it's working now.

After setting AS_ALLOW_DS_FOLDER_CHANGES in NTSConfig to true I can now create/delete folders.

Sometimes it helps to read the documentation ... http://www.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/dx/Lotus_Notes_Traveler_8.5.3.1

Thanks Rene! I did miss this one. Just assumed it would just work by default, because the flags also worked by default.

Just an FYI to everyone that is already running 8.5.3.1 20111004_1634, the hotfix that corrected the wav file issue.

https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO63358

The 8.5.3.1 fix pack does reintroduce the issue.

You'll have to open a PMR to get another hotfix to apply to the 8.5.3.1 fix. Which will bring the version to 8.5.3.1 20111114_1034.
