Important review information

The IBM Domino Traveler service is updated periodically throughout the year, but also provides hotfixes to address issues and concerns with the product. It is important to refer to the product documentation to ensure that the latest information related to the product is being leveraged within the environment.

Licensing information for IBM Notes Traveler

IBM Notes Traveler is not considered a standalone product that can be purchased from IBM; it is entitled through the appropriate licensing of the client environment. The entitlement for the IBM Traveler environment is obtained through proper maintenance of the IBM Domino Enterprise or Messaging CAL (this includes express and Complete Enterprise Options) licensing model. Each end user that has an active subscription and support for either the Enterprise or Messaging version of the IBM Domino CAL has the ability to access the resources provided by the IBM Domino Servers running the service. As the deployment of the IBM Notes Traveler service on the Domino Server may be dependent on a more advanced release of the IBM Domino server code, active subscription and support would be required on the IBM Domino Server. Please contact your IBM Collaboration Services representative to ensure that you are properly licensed to deploy the IBM Notes Traveler product within your environment.

New in IBM Notes Traveler IBM is planning on releasing IBM Notes Traveler in the first half of 2013. As the mobile market place changes and grows, IBM has tried to evolve the Traveler product to meet the needs of users. The IBM Notes Traveler 9 release is slated to include a new service for Apple and Android devices to handle the management of synchronizing to-dos between the devices and the Domino Server, additional support for Windows 8 and Blackberry 10 devices, and expanded support for server-based operating systems.

The new to-do functionality will allow Apple and Android devices to perform the following functions: review to-dos, complete to-dos or remove them entirely, create new to-dos, organize to-dos into lists, and sync attachments as part of to-do data. To perform the synchronization of the data with the Apple iOS will require that the end users download a new free IBM Notes Traveler to-do application from the App store.

The new IBM Notes Traveler 9 will also include support for Windows Phones (7.5, 7.8, and 8) along with Windows RT support. The support for the Windows RT environment is slated to be through the exchange account facility on the device. The initial release of support will contain limited functionality around managing the calendar facility. The Blackberry 10 device can be leveraged in a couple of different ways to gain access to the environment. If the device is personally owned and managed, the user can connect to the IBM Notes Traveler Server directly from the Personal Perimeter. If the device is intended to leverage the Work Perimeter, the device will connect to the Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) 10 environment; the BES 10 server will act as a proxy for the device to access the IBM Notes Traveler environment.

It is intended that IBM Notes Traveler 9 will expand operating system support to include the IBM iSeries, Windows Server 12, Red Hat 6 (64-bit), and SUSE 11 (64-bit). Support for older versions of Red Hat and SUSE have been phased out, as the current version of the Domino Server will not support those operating systems. Please refer to the product documentation for further information and configuration assistance on the new platforms.
