Domino 11.0.0 on Linux Command or option is ambiguous  

By Daniel Nashed | 1/8/20 9:15 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

We ran into this during an update and I thought this was just me. But I got a mail from a partner today with the same issue.

But in case you cannot do that, you might run into an issue, because of you locale.

In Notes and Domino 11, HCL switched from using IBM's J9 Java distribution to using the OpenJ9 variant of AdoptOpenJDK. This is a lateral move technically - it's still Java 8 - and it's one presumably made in the short term to avoid licensing costs from IBM and in the long term to align better with AdoptOpenJDK.

By Ulrich Krause | 1/7/20 6:17 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

With version 11 of HCL Notes & Domino we also got a new splash screen. To be honest, I think the new screen is butt ugly. The gradient isn’t a proper gradient, and the logos are low quality.

The rating of "A+" was OK, but the reference (marked with the red arrow in the screenshot) to the downgrade to "Grade B" from January 2020 was reported.
