Sure about the client also getting it? It's only mentioned for the server in that Release Notice.

Absolutely not. Ever since IBM decided to give the server a different name, I have always referred to them with both names. If it is only mentioned on the server, it's only going to be on the server.

"Notes/Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 addresses defects in the Client, Server, and the Domino OpenSocial component. All Feature Packs are language independent and may be applied on any language version of Notes/Domino 9.0.1."

"Notes Client on Linux - There is no Notes client for Linux shipped with 9.0.1 FP8. This client platform has been discontinued and customers are encouraged to move to Windows or Mac."

That sucks!! Not that it was ever well supported, especially on 64 bit versions.

Still no Java 8 for the Client... Can't be true, really. The client runs with Java 6 since...ages.

This is a partial list. There is ABSOLUTELY a java 8 update for the client. In order to compile with 1.8 we need to upgrade more components and that work is not ready yet. FP8: Is an interim step to ship/support 1/8 runtime. This allows customers to take code built for Java 1.8 (using another development tool outside of Designer) and then run that on the Notes client / Domino server. But if you are writing it in Designer, we will still compile with 1.6. It is our intent to release the compile functionality in Feature Pack 9. In FP 9 we will upgrade OSGi/Eclipse/SWT on the designer client to support Java 8 compile time.

The work was big enough to break up into two Feature Packs.

We will cover all of this an more at Connect 2017.

"Notes on Linux.. this client platform has been discontinued" - Change platform for IBM? It'll be much more realistic to find an alternative, thus making our users much happier despite the Linux (Deb) client being the most reliable one in our opinion. Another goodbye :D

Some more details and good news:

"So the JRE will be 1.8 for both Notes & Domino in 9.0.1 FP8. The preliminary fix list will be updated to state this. This was the first step. Designer will have 1.6 for compiling applications in FP8. But top of the list for the next FP is to upgrade the compiler in Designer to also use Java 1.8."
