The good news is, IBM does keep on fixing it…

Quickr for Domino, removed from marketing and sales in May, still has a strong user base and support from IBM and partners (myself included — we do support for our enterprise clients, especially customizations).

So Fixpack 41 was just released. As you can see from the dates, it’s slowed down a bit as they used to be monthly. But, there are some critical fixes (a couple of mine, so they must be!) included. Visit IBM Fix Central to download and install the Fixpack. Remember some best practices when applying an IBM fixpack:

  1. Back up your customizations (or keep them under source control, which you should be doing anyway)
  2. Catalog the customizations and settings
  3. Review the new qpconfig_sample.xml for new parameters and nodes that may apply to your environment
  4. Review your custom widgets to see if IBM has updated any functions that you are using in your widgets. I’ve discovered that IBM has created fixes that we fixed first (so we can remove them), or added functionality that we would lose by continuing to use our widgets.
  5. Unlock just the locked places — if it’s a large server, figure out what these are by checking the place catalog and unlock just those places. It’s a waste to unlock all like in the instructions when there will only be a few locked.

Go crazy. Here are the fixes in 41:
