IBM Client application Access 1.0.1 Feature Pack 2 available for download with new features and fixes !

During last days IBM has released the new Feature pack 2 for ICAA 1.0.1 and as usual I've received this new client from the IBM live update servers because I'm a cloud user.

IBM Client Application access  is a new (incredibly fast) version of IBM Notes Basic client dedicated to Notes application. You will not be able to open classical Notes mail database from ICAA because IBM has thanked this client to be used together with IBM Verse and MS Outlook with IMSMO and in my opinion is very well integrated setup.

This are the new features included with FP2:

  • Spell checking is now available with ICAA on Microsoft Windows.
  • ICAA now uses the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) server hint to open links where server connection documents don't exist. Users can open new ICAA links from IBM Verse™, Notes® Web, Sametime®, and Microsoft Word without creating any connection documents.
  • ICAA can be configured to open IBM Verse™ On-premises as the default mail client.
  • Installing the Auto Update Tool (AUT) in ICAA is optional for on-premises users. AUT is only supported for IBM® Connections Cloud.

The new FQDN support should simplify the manage of the Notes link received from IBM Verse.

This Feature pack also included the following fixes that increase the compatibility for MAC and close a security vulnerability.

ICAA release are cumulative, so you will be able to obtain the last version of this great client downloading the last package and this is another reason why I prefer ICAA instead classical Notes basic.

I started to work with IBM Verse and ICAA since the beginning and I really appreciate this setup.
