Version 4.5 of IBM Connections has been released today and is available for download.
Beside a new module (IBM Connections Content Manager) there are a few other enhancements.
After integrating Cognos in Connections 4.0 I am looking forward to having fun with another technology which is new to me – IBM FileNet.
An update for the common application for CR3 for Connections 4.0 has been released – it fixes an issue when accessing this version with
Lotus Notes 9 Social Edition.
Obviously, IBM informed all customers who have already downloaded CR3 about the update.
Our Fix Central records indicate that the ID associated with this email address downloaded IBM Connections 4.0 Cumulative Refresh 3 (CR3). IBM support has found an issue that may affect Notes 9 Social Edition clients accessing IBM Connections 4.0 environments with CR3 applied. iFix LO74465 was added to the 4.0 CR3 package to address this issue and is now available from Fix Central. If you have Notes 9 Social Edition clients that will access your IBM Connections 4.0 CR3 environment, please use this link to download the iFix:
If you have already applied 4.0 CR3, please use the update installer to apply LO74465.
If you have not already applied 4.0 CR3, please include LO74465 along with the rest of the fixes you already downloaded, so that it is applied as part of CR3.
Thanks, good service!
Just a few days before IBM Connections 4.5 is going to be released, CR3 for Connections 4.0 can be downloaded from IBM Fix Central (20 files).
The link to the Fix list for IBM Connections 4.0 CR3
is somehow broken, but CR’s are normally not released just for fun works now – and do not forget to upgrade the update installer first.
If you have not upgraded to CR2 yet, make sure to upgrade your database first.

*Changed: broken link to fix list
IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition will be available on March 21 and IBM Connections 4.5 is planned to be delivered on March 29.
While I am still searching for the big “WOW”in Domino 9 (SAML support might be one), Notes 9 will have a lot of usability improvements, UI beautifications (OneUI) and iNotes enhancements.
IBM Connections 4.5 will be enhanced with IBM Connections Content Manager 4.5, which will significantly improve file and document handling in IBM Connections (hopefully). I wonder what happened to IBM Docs? Will it be included?
