Update Five: IBM Notes on MacOS High Sierra Support

Bill Malchisky  March 1 2018 09:39:20 PM
After another month of weekly updates from IBM on the status of their Notes on High Sierra release, plus calls with our AVL, I can honestly state I have no idea when it will be released. Here is what I do know and can offer--with permission from IBM.


Currently, we hit five months from the last Technote update and several people contacted me privately asking for updates or any advice I could provide as they need the code. I also conveyed this situation to IBM. The reason for the continued testing and extended release timeline is one I am not authorized to post, so please understand I am quite empathetic as I know your end users, or you personally really need the installer.

Work-around (Some Good News)

Until IBM releases the updated software officially and updates the Technote, my suggestion would be to contact tech support, open a PMR, and request the updated installer. This is unofficial of course, but enough IBMers told me this is what they are telling their customers, so I asked if I could offer it publicly. From my experience, the updated program appeared in Fix Central through my linked IBM ID account, making for an easy download process.

In Closing

I wish I had better news on the official release, but I think this work-around should provide some much needed relief for many of you. IBM Development is working hard on the official release, especially with the new internal acquisition proceedings being completed: certainly causing a few short-term disruptions. My next update will be on the official release announcement with the updated Technote.

Until my next update...
