    IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO) - configure your client in a single click
    • IMSMO is now easier than ever to configure.  All a user needs to do is install the IMSMO client then click on a link.  The user's Outlook profile will be automatically configured and ready for use.
  • Verse

    Enrich your SameTime Connect and IBM Verse Experience
    • Integrate stand-alone SameTime Connect client with the Verse user experience.  Users will be able to click on a chat icon and start a chat in the stand-alone SameTime Connect client. (Link)

    New Calendar Inbox (Coming Soon)
    • Make better decisions when responding to calendar notices by viewing your calendar at the same time. The new Calendar Inbox organizes all your calendar notices in one place.

    Make your inline reply comments stand out
    • When you add comments to someone's text, you can now have your own different text style and color. Click Permanent Pen and anything you type will be in a different color. Easily change colors or fonts.

    Out of Office
    • Out of Office settings have moved from an icon on the Calendar Bar to Mail and Calendar Settings.

    Sign and encrypt mail by default
    • Protect the messages that you send. Now you can digitally sign and encrypt all outgoing mail and calendar messages by default. Go to Mail and Calendar Settings in Verse and select Security.

    Filter messages by date, people, or folder when working offline
    • Verse cannot search the content of messages while you are offline, but you can start typing names of people, folders, or dates to zero in on what you're looking for. You can select a folder, name, or date from type ahead.

    Send attachments in offline mode
    • Offline mode now supports attaching files to messages.

    Changed keyboard shortcut for pasting paint formatting
    • The old keyboard shortcut for paste as paint formatting was CTRL + SHIFT + V (CMD + SHIFT + V for Macs). But that shortcut was already in use in most browsers for pasting plain text. So, the keyboard shortcut in Verse for pasting paint formatting has changed to CRTL + ALT + V (Windows) or CMD + ALT + V (Mac).

    Large File Downloads
    • Files larger than 2 GB are not scanned by the Connections Cloud service. Now you receive a warning message when you are about to download an unscanned file larger than 2 GB
    Inline Videos in the Activity steam play with Improved Performance
    • Videos in the Activity stream are now more robust and play with improved performance.
    IBM Docs

    IBM Docs: New Formulas
    • There are 18 new forumulas for the Spreadsheets Editor in IBM Docs including ACOT, ACOTH, COT, COTH, ERFC, FACTDOUBLE, GAMMALN, GCD, LCM, MROUND, MULTINOMIAL, QUOTIENT, SERIESSUM, SIGN, SQRTPI, SUMSQ, TAN, TANH.
