What’s New in HCL Nomad Web 1.0.9
Information Box Support
In the latest release of HCL Nomad for web browsers, users will notice the introduction of the Information Box feature. These boxes are instrumental in displaying various properties such as Application Properties, Document Properties, Database Properties, Text Properties, and Workspace Properties. Unlike in HCL Notes where the information box appears as a free-floating dialog, it is conveniently docked on the right side, in HCL Nomad for a streamlined user experience.
Enhanced File Import Capabilities
The File > Import functionality has received a significant boost in this release. Users can now import a broader range of file types that were previously unsupported. For a comprehensive list of these enhancements and any potential limitations, please read the “Limitations” page.
