Notes/Domino 7.0.2 only a template release?

Watching the keynote from the Ireland Notes Usergroup 2006 via Google Video I stumbled upon something Ed Brill said in relation to the release Notes/Domino 7.0.2. What I heard was something like:

“…we’re not touching the core code. This is all template work or install work. <snip/> It’s not going to touch anything about nserver.exe, it’s not going to touch anything about your address book, it’s not going to touch anything about your replication. It’s not going to touch anything about your users.”

How can that be? Not all the 388 fixes listed on Lotus developerWorks are template related. Did I misunderstand what Ed said or were he simply wrong? Did he mean the added RSS functionality was orthogonal to the code? Hmmm…

One thought on “Notes/Domino 7.0.2 only a template release?”

  1. I think when Ed said “we’re not touching the core code” he was refering to new features, not the bug fixes. So all the new stuff in 7.02 sits in the templates and the 388 fixes are, well, fixes not features.
