Traveler 9.0.1.20 Released

Daniel Nashed  18 November 2017 14:44:58
Traveler 9.0.1.20 has been released and I installed it already.
As usual, if you are not waiting for an urgent open issue that is listed in the fix list, it might make sense to wait before installing a new version in production asap.
I have installed it already befor the weekend and it looks good for my small environment.

Beside the fixes listed below there is a new feature:
  • Support for invitee availability search from Calendar on Exchange ActiveSync clients.

Still trying to test it. Not sure the iOS native calendar does support it.

I did not have this on the radar and also never tested with the Verse app. Don't see it working here.
Maybe someone has an idea?

I did not testing but without luck on any of my clients.

APAR # Abstract
LO93044 Slow sync due to prime sync thread looping over large number of child documents.
LO93067 Better handling of encrypted mail when syncing to mobile device.
LO93070 Traveler cleanup bind command may fail when using MS SQL Server.

Just to share it here, too:

If you are still running a Domino 32-Bit version - Traveler 9.0.1.20 no longer supports 32-Bit.

Please, take a look at the System Requirements:

{ Link }

Finally - time to upgrade to 64-Bit

The native iOS calendar app has supported free/busy lookup since iOS 8.

@Gregg, I know but in my test it did not show the conflicts.

Not sure what is going wrong. I have seen a conflict once but afterwards it did not work any more.

I am selecting an user on the same server but I am not getting a conflict.

it's a bit interesting that the 9.0.1.20 makes a few references to domino 901 FP10. I went looking for FP10 thinking I must have missed it but found it is only in stage 2 preparation and not due for release until Q1 2018. Wondering if 9.0.1.20 had to be released earlier than originally planned?

@Daniel,@Gregg, regarding "Support for invitee availability search from Calendar on Exchange ActiveSync clients." it would be very helpful, if IBM would add a description eg in the IBM Knowledge Center, IBM Traveler documentation, What's new section https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSYRPW_9.0.1/LNT_overview.html.

So we would not have to guess how it should work...

After upgrading to 9.0.1.20 the symbol of a Notes Document Link is missing on an iOS device in the native Mail app? The symbol for the Notes View Link and Application Link are still shown correct. Does any one else observe this behavior? Maybe this is a regression regarding APAR # LO93084.

It appears the lack of support for Domino 32bit in 9.0.1.20 was an oversight. It is being addressed in an APAR and will be reinstated in 9.0.1.21

8Franz Stadler  11.01.2018 9:58:41  Traveler 9.0.1.20 Released

@Daniel,@Gregg - We opened a PMR regarding the new feature "Support for invitee availability search from Calendar on Exchange ActiveSync clients."

There are 3 new notes.ini paremeters:

NTS_FREE_BUSY_SUPPORT

NTS_FREE_BUSY_MAX_RECIPIENTS

NTS_FREE_BUSY_MAX_RANGE_HOURS

All 3 described in "IBM Knowledge Center / IBM Notes Traveler 9.0.1" documentation section "Notes.ini settings".

More info about them can also be found in the section "Known limitations and restrictions / Apple limitations and restrictions / Calendar".

Here how it should work:

1. Create your event with a title and proposed date and time

2. Tap Invitees, and select from the suggested participants, use the type ahead search, or use the image icon to select from the contacts on your phone and tap DONE

3. Review scheduling conflicts and alternative times where all invitees can attend.

4. To remove an invitee, swipe their name from right to left.

As the free busy search also did not work after we knew how it has to be done, we also found out, that a working free busy connection from the IBM Traveler Server to the IBM Domino Mail Server of the users is mandatory. So at least Calendar Connector has to run on the IBM Traveler Server, and if the IBM Traveler Servers are in an own Domino Domain, a cross domain free busy search has to be configured via a Adjacent Domain (Calendar Information) document!

Now it works like a charm.

Hope it also works on your environment!

Unfortunately, we upgraded our server to (32-bit) IBM Domino 9.0.1 FP10 before realizing that the IBM Traveler 9.0.1.20 server wouldn't run on it.

Anyone know when IBM Traveler 9.0.1.21 is coming out? I won't be able to bring the Domino server down to convert to 64-bit Domino for quite some time.

Thank you.
