IBM Traveler available and why you should upgrade

IBM Traveler is more a maintenance release but with two important fixes beside others.

First Fix:
MIME message processing reads attachments multiple times

This is really an important one. Before this fix a MIME message including attachments reads and downloads the attachment two times from the mail server.
First to get the exact file size and a second time, when the attachment is requested by the device. That was ... not smart, right?

This is fixed now. There were already improvements in that space in 10.0.0 and 10.0.1 but hopefully will fix it finally.

Second Fix:
Emails with body data type TEXT get converted to error message

When your mail includes a Body field as Text field not Richtext, 10.0.0 should show a message, that the mail is misformatted and should be opened with iNotes.
This can happen, when the mail was generated by an agent and the developer created a Body Text field instead of an Richtext field.

This is fixed now, too.

Beside another topic (Traveler sync issue ) , it is a good idea to upgrade to

Please note that Traveler 10 does not require Domino 10, but Domino 9.0.1 FP8 is sufficient.

IBM Traveler requires Domino 9.0.1.x (or later) on Linux, Windows and IBMi platforms.  

IBM Traveler can be used to update any previous Traveler environment running
Domino 9.0.1.x or Domino 10.0.0.x without requiring a Domino upgrade.  
Of course it is always recommended to keep Domino at the latest level.

Database Schema Update:

IBM Traveler does not include a database schema update, however Traveler had a small schema update for MS SQL Server deployments.
