Overview - New Features and Enhancements

A cumulative list of all fixes announced via previous R5 Release Notes can be found in the online Release Notes README.NSF database that ships with each new release of the Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino products. Features and enhancements newly introduced in previous R5 releases (such as Release 5.0a) are available in the History of Changes chapter. All features and enhancements listed in that chapter for are also carried forward into the current Notes and Domino R5 Maintenance Release (MR) unless otherwise stated.

Official Fix Lists of Software Problem Report (SPR) fixes and enhancements are also available at the web site. (These Fix Lists are segregated by product, however, rather than comprehensively presented in one location like the fixes reported in the online Release Notes database. The Fix Lists are available on the various Incremental Installer pages in the web site "Download" area).

In addition to shipping with the core product, online Release Notes databases containing the comprehensive Fix Lists for a release are available for download or live web browser viewing at The Documentation site at is:

Notes/Domino Fix Lists

Beginning with Release 5.0.5, we have introduced the new R5 Web Fix List Application, which will allow you to access all of the fix list entries for the 5.0.x codestream on Notes.Net via this new delivery mechanism. The Release 5.0.5 fix list is contained on this new site, along with previous R5.0x fix lists. You can access the R5 Web Fix List application on Notes.Net at For more detailed information regarding the R5 Web Fix List application, refer to the Release Note entitled "R5 Web Fix Lists on". (NOTE: Fix Lists after R5.0.3 are not posted in the Release Notes, as they are also available in the new R5 Web Fix List Application.)

Online Release Notes SPR Tracking View
The sole purpose of this view in the online README.NSF database is to provide a means for finding SPR-related issues that happen to be discussed in the Release Notes. This list is not comprehensive. The presence of an SPR in this view does not imply a 'fix' or development action is imminent, nor does the absence of an SPR in this view imply an issue is 'resolved' or 'no longer under consideration' by Lotus, unless otherwise stated.
