Lotus Notes/Domino 8.5.3 and IBM XWork Server 8.5.3 are here

October 4th, 2011

It's October 4th and Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.3 are now available for download on Passport Advantage. The brand new IBM XWork Server has also been announced.

I have been looking forward to this release in general, and in particular because of features specifically for XPages developers:

  • improved JavaScript editor
  • finally a java design element for XPages
  • Dojo 1.6.1
  • OneUI version 2.1 (which looks very similar to the prototype 3.0 version that the Lotus Notes and Domino Application Development wiki uses)
  • option to combine CSS and JS in a single file to improve site speed
  • improved HTML5 support such as support for adding HTML5 attributes
  • source control enablement
I look very much forward to an improved experience when working with XPages development in the Domino Designer client. Happy coding!

    I think it's Dojo 1.5.0 and 1.5.1 . Release notes says
    But you can upgrade to 1.6, in some way.
