I'm back from a ten-day around-the-world trip, during which I allocated my free time to book writing so haven't been blogging. Lots of great customer and partner meetings in France, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan. Some good food at every stop, too.
Now that I'm back, I am catching up...including Raj Patil's blog. Raj is a senior technical staff member on the Notes team, but I think his blog isn't on PlanetLotus because not many people have seen it. This week he posted an update on the Notes browser plug-in, coming as part of Notes/Domino 8.5.4 Social Edition:
What we have done is:Raj is happy to discuss the plug-in on his blog....lots of customer interest in my meetings over the last few weeks. You can of course ask me, too, but he's the technical guy ;-)
Have a minimum kit - which is about 62 MB, almost all that you need to run your existing Domino Application in the 2 browsers we will support.
Have a larger kit - about 125 MB, which includes the minimum above, but in addition also includes the Notes JVM which is required if you have applications that have Java in the design.
You can decide which is required by your users.
Another goal that we have achieved, is to simplify the installation. We will continue to have MSI installer, as requested by most of the customers we talked to, but the installation has 2 screen to begin with and then installs within a minute on my Windows7 desktop that I have. I think this is HUGE!! I am sure your admin's and user's will find this beneficial.
So the goal of Install & Setup of a minute-each definitely is something that is already achieved.
