DAMO R.I.P.


The development teams at IBM responsible for the Domino Access for Microsoft Office (DAMO) functionality currently plan to continue to support and maintain the functionality. There are no plans to add new features or functions to the technology beyond those that have been developed and tested. Issues brought to IBM Support where it is determined that the functionality is not working as designed will be addressed.

The latest version of DAMO is built on the 8.0.x code stream and there are no plans to bring it forward to a more recent version of Notes. DAMO has been tested and its use is supported with a Domino 8.5.x server. DAMO is a feature of Notes and Domino 8.0 and will continue to be supported for the life of those products.

I can’t imagine too many will be upset at this news. Is anyone running DAMO in production?
