On March 13, 2013, IBM announced the availability of IBM Notes 9 Social Edition, the replacement name and latest version for the updated client software. Notes provides business collaboration functionality, including email, calendars, to do lists, contacts management, teamrooms, discussion forums, file sharing, microblogging, instant messaging, blogs, and user directories. Notes also provides access to and integration with other Domino applications and databases.
Notes and Domino is an easy-to-use, single point of access to everything you need to get your work done quickly, including business applications, email, calendars, feeds, and more. Notes is an e-mail application client that is one of many applications that can be developed and deployed on the Domino messaging and application server. Notes and Domino supports IBM and third-party (Independent Software Developer) software, including independent applications, add-ins, add-ons, widgets, and plug-ins. Examples of applications can be found in the IBM Global Solutions Catalog.
In 2008 IBM released XPages technology, based on JavaServer Faces. This allows IBM Notes applications to be displayed to browser clients and in the Notes client with no change of the code. Previously IBM Domino applications could be access through browsers, but required web specific modifications to get full functionality in browsers. XPages also give the application new capabilities that are not possible with the classic IBM Notes client. And with IBM Domino 9 Social Edition, IBM released the IBM Notes Browser Plugin, allowing most IBM Domino applications to display unmodified through a web browser without requiring the IBM Notes rich desktop client.
