.Doc 3.5"> Domino.Doc 3.5

The new release of Domino.Doc, Version 3.5, is a client-only upgrade that should make integration between Lotus document management software and productivity suites such as Microsoft Office even tighter. On the server side, Domino.Doc 3.1 (released last year) remains the most updated version of the server, which is probably good news for the many shops still trying to upgrade to it.

The Domino.Doc 3.5 client upgrade adds Open Document Management API support, which allows Domino.Doc users to use the "save as" function from any desktop tool to the document manager. Users can also now save e-mail attachments directly into the Domino. Doc repository.

While Sametime and the Lotus QuickPlace team collaboration tool provide rudimentary document storage capabilities, Domino.Doc has advanced capabilities including document locking, check-in and checkout, and versioning.

To give QuickPlace access to these capabilities, Lotus has added to Domino.Doc a mechanism that allows it to manage QuickPlace collaboration sites. The connector tool enables seamless document retrieval from QuickPlace to Domino.Doc.

In addition, with IBMs acquisition of Tarian Software Inc., Lotus and IBM now have access to e-Records Management software, which will allow customers to better manage the documents they have floating around. It is also hoped that this new technology will help Domino.Doc improve its ability to retain records and optimize disposal policies to meet new regulations in the health care, government, insurance and financial industries.
