Update Three: IBM Notes on MacOS High Sierra Support

Note: This update is provided with approval from IBM


Below is my third installment on IBM's official support for macOS High Sierra (OS X 10.13). Exciting progress!

Issue Update

* IBM contacted me on Thursday, 4 Jan 18 with an update on the build process
* IBM provided the first-cut of the build outside of IBM on Friday, 5 Jan 18
* IBM tested it for a multitude of installation scenarios, some of which our AVL reviewed with me

Resolution Request

* In confirming what the release includes, it is a base installer only
* As per my L2 contact, the following three points were also discussed:
      1. ND 9.0.1 Interim Fixes are available as a separate download, to be installed after installation
      2. IBM tested against targeted High Sierra fixes
      3. Any IBM updates necessary for Meltdown or Spectre would be included separately

Testing Results

* We started testing the build on Friday, 5 Jan 18
* Although preliminary in nature, we were able to install Notes on High Sierra, which we could not do previously
* We have more machines and testing to complete, but the initial results are encouraging
* Only a very small group of entities have the code currently, and I am happy to be involved with the testing process, as well as receive permission to blog my work with IBM on this PMR
* Although conjecture, I believe IBM is being very careful with this release, due to the scope and complexity of the OS level changes High Sierra introduces
