The global launch of Domino and Sametime v11 and Connections 6.5 is right around the corner. In a recent webcast, we had Paul Withers and Tim Malone from Intec join our own Andrew Manby for a Q&A on the progress of the Domino and Nomad betas, key features for the V11 timeframe, and updates on launch events. Hundred attended the webcast and many of you asked great questions. We’ve compiled them here, along with our answers.
I’m thrilled to share with you the people behind the Domino, Leap, and Sametime product management team, some of which you know already, and some who are probably new to you. These are the people that work closely with HCL development, sales, support and marketing, our HCL Masters, and Business Partners to get the Domino and Sametime portfolio to market.
On October 30, we announced our newly selected Managed Service Providers (MSPs), called HCL Cloud Hosting Partners, with transparency into our selection process, data migration strategies by desired destination, and a timeline for next steps. We also launched a new website for our HCL Cloud Hosting Partners with additional information you may need in support of your migration.
At Collabsphere in Boston, October 28–30, 2019, those of you who attended the Connections strategy session learned what we have planned through the end of this year and heading into 2020. For those of you who couldn’t join us, here is what we shared about the upcoming Connections 6.5 release. We are excited to be giving Connections the attention and investment it deserves and to be making this journey with you.

On October 15, 2019, we hosted a popular HCL Domino-focused webcast hosted by Gabriella Davis from Turtle Partnership, and Andrew Manby from HCL, to bring you up-to-date with the work we've completed on the discussions template for iOS mobile as well as discussing how we got here, what is coming next, how you can get involved, and our hopes for additions to Domino Designer that will allow us to map mobile gestures and behavior to Notes applications. There were hundreds of participants and a lot of questions were asked. We provide the answers to those questions here (sorted by topics, in bold).
I’m delighted to bring you an important update on the Digital Solutions strategy for HCL Nomad, the client interface to Domino applications.
We recently hosted a lively and informative webcast that covered the new updates coming later this year for Domino application development. Andrew Manby and Marty Lechleider took attendees through the specifics of the upcoming App Dev Pack release, and a preview on what’s coming in future versions. On the low-code front, Marty gave an update on plans for bringing HCL LEAP into Domino (Project Sandstone) and how it will enable IT and business users to easily build new apps. You can watch the replay here.
At HCL we take our customers’ needs and concerns very seriously. Since July, when we made the End of Service announcement of Connections Cloud, we have worked closely with customers and partners around the world to understand their needs, and how HCL can best position them for success now and in the future. We have heard that customers want choice, security, innovation, and continuity for their business. What follows is an update on our progress and some expectations as we move forward.
The AppDev Pack is an add-on for HCL Domino that lets users connect Domino applications with Node.js projects and create new applications that span both worlds.
HCL is pleased to announce that on August 28, 2019, AppDev Pack 1.0.2 for HCL Domino is released for general availability. Highlights of this version are:
