    For instructions on manually updating the certificate, see this Support article.

    • Two new columns for Summary and Signed fields:

    To open Advanced Properties, select File > Advanced Properties.

    Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish.

  • All NSF databases in the data folder are automatically upgraded to the latest default ODS version.
    • This improves the client's performance and is compatible with older versions on the server. This behavior can be turned off through setting NSF_AlwaysUpdateODS=0.

  • Microsoft Edge replaces Internet Explorer as the default browser for the Notes Basic Client. The default browser is used for rendering external emails and HTTP links. If Microsoft Edge is not installed, Notes reverts to using Internet Explorer.

    This requires a Microsoft package called WebView Runtime.
