Managed Beans, Scopes and Lifetimes

By Paul Withers | 4 days ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Johnny Oldenburger

Is Verse a new way to work?

By Volker Weber | 5 days ago | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

I applaud IBM for trying a new and fresh start with email. Ever since they have shown first ideas at Connect 2013 I was hooked. Everybody has his own pattern how to deal with email. Some people leave everything in the inbox and use the unread indicator to form a todo list. Others file everything in dozens of folders. Can they change their ways?

IBM announce dates for bringing TLS v. 1.2 to IBM Domino

By Mikkel Heisterberg | 2 weeks ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Johnny Oldenburger

So in October of 2014 I wrote about the upcoming TLS (transport layer security) enhancements that IBM was planning to bring to IBM Domino as part of the industry wide panic about the POODLE attack which I still consider mainly theoretical. I was a bit critical towards IBM as they chose to patch their seriously lacking SSL v. 1.3 implementation and implement TLS v. 1.0 on top of IBM Domino v. 9.0.x (IBM Domino, POODLE, SHA-1 and why it's also sad when IBM decides to update the security stack).
