Cool stuff in Notes/Domino 12.0.1 beta 2

Friday, October 8, 2021 at 10:04 PM UTC
It's amazing how HCL manages to surprise me every time they release a new version of Notes and Domino and this is even true with beta versions. There is so much stuff added in the latest beta 2 to the prior one that I can't even show everything after playing around with it for some days. I have to skip the latest additions to DQL and the new Query Results Processor (QRP) for now since t [...]

The client - well this is a different story for me every time, also with [...]

Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at 11:10 PM UTC
HCL released version 1.0.4 of HCL Domino Volt, the low-code platform that runs on your Domino server. I had the chance to be part of an internal call in June this year when the team shared some new ideas about a new UI and the complete makeover of the workflow editor. The latter did not make its way into the new release, yet, but the new UI did. Version 1.0.4 comes with some improvements [...] 

Dark Mode for your Website

The amount of websites that adapt to your computer's preferred visual mode is increasing. Today I added this useful feature to my website. If you use an operating system that changes colors and visuals according to the time of the day to make reading at night time more comfortable then you already benefit from this. I am using macOS and iOS and both can adapt their color scheme to the dayli [...] 

Nachhaltige WertePost in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Monday, August 9, 2021 at 7:46 PM UTC
Wenn man heutzutage von Nachhaltigkeit oder Wertigkeit spricht, dann meint man Dinge und Produkte, die mehr als 2-5 Jahre ihren Dienst verrichten.

Denn: was früher quasi für die "Ewigkeit" gebaut wurde und dann auch an spätere Generationen weiter vererbt wurde, der schaut heute in [...]
