Lotus Connections 2.0.1 available

As posted by Luis Benitez Lotus Connections 2.0.1 as been shipped.

This quarter we shipped Lotus Connections 2.0.1 (on Halloween). If you are upgrading, you can download it from IBM’s Fix Central. One question that I’m continuously asked is: “what’s new in Lotus Connections v2.0.1?”. Well, here’s a list of what I’ve gathered:

  • Quickr integration with Activities – Push-button publication from an Activity into one of your Quickr Places for permanent document storage
  • Quickr integration with Communities – Allows communities to use Quickr as their content repository and document collaboration platform.
  • Enhanced person card
  • E-mail is no longer a required attribute (great for external implementations)
  • New feeds inside of Communities
  • New feeds for forums
  • New APIs for Activities, Blogs, Communities, Homepage (federated search), Profiles
  • Hidden support for STLinks (more about this later)
  • User Interface and Usability enhancements, for example:
    • Can now save members as part of an activity template
    • Drag-n-drop activities entries
    • Uploading images to a blog is now easier
    • Improvements in the Activities widget
    • Easier way to work with multiple bookmarks
    • A couple of bug fixes
