Welcome to MarvelClient 12.0!
Thank you for taking your time to read our release notes.
Here you will find all information about MC 12.0.0, as well as any subsequent MC 12.0.x releases, as they become available.
An overview of some of the more prominent changes; for more in-depth information consult the other sections further down, especially the detailed release notes.
MarvelClient Essentials for Notes/Domino 12
As with Notes/Domino 10 and 11, MarvelClient is also included in V12. The installer can be found on the Domino server, and the client part is already present on your Notes clients.
New No-Touch Activation of MarvelClient Essentials
Even better, your Domino 12 server has MarvelClient Essentials activation built-in to the Domino Directory. Go to the new MarvelClient view in the Directory and activate MC Essentials on all your Notes 12 clients by simply creating a few documents and flipping a switch in the Directory Profile. No client configuration required! See About MarvelClient and Notes/Domino >= V12 for details.
MarvelClient Upgrade 25 Free
Need help upgrading your Notes clients to V12? We have a new special offer that lets you use MarvelClient Upgrade on a small number of clients for free, so you can try it out. For a link to the offer, along with a detailed webinar from the Notes 12 launch event that demonstrates MC Upgrade and highlights many of the ways that MarvelClient can help your Notes 12 clients run smoothly, see this blog entry: Domino Dozen or The Wonders of MarvelClient.
MarvelClient Included in All HCL Nomad Clients
MarvelClient is now included with HCL Nomad Web (as of version 1.0.1). This means that MarvelClient comes with all versions of HCL Nomad: iOS, Android, and Web. See our Knowledge Base for more information, or watch our webinar: Nomad For Web Browsers and MarvelClient: A Match Made in Heaven
Change Logging in the Config Database
The MarvelClient Config database has a new Change Logging feature, that logs all the changes you make to actions. If something seems different when your MarvelClient actions run, go to the Advanced - Logs view and see what changed! Requires template version 20210122121100 or higher.
New Cleanup Configuration in the Analyze Database
Is your Analyze database getting too large? Try the new Cleanup Configuration options in the Administration section and get rid of those old or duplicate documents.
Windows 64-Bit Client Support
HCL released the Windows 64-bit Notes client starting with version 12.0.2. MarvelClient Essentials was bundled with that release, and the full MarvelClient binary is ready to work with 64-bit clients from day one. For more information, please see MarvelClient Support for HCL Notes 64-Bit Windows Clients.
Attention - Action Required
You'll find all these in the detailed release notes as well.
HCL Notes 12 support
MarvelClient versions older than 12 will not work on Notes 12, so make sure to update MarvelClient before upgrading Notes.
Location and Connection actions on Nomad
On newer Nomad clients, existing Location and Connection actions will not work unless you have a Config database template version 20210708 or higher, and you resave the actions with Nomad platforms selected. This is because certain Location and Connection options are not appropriate for Nomad clients, and we want to make sure you don't accidentally push these settings out to Nomad clients without reviewing them first.
Version: 6.x, 7.x, 8.x, 9.x, 10.x, 11.0.0, 11.0.1, 12.0.0, 12.0.1, 12.0.2. This includes Basic, Standard and ICAA/HCAA clients (note: HCAA requires MC 11.0.18+ to work properly).

Some functionality is not available on all Notes client operating systems.

- No Rollback
- No Run Program actions
- No Recent Contacts management

- .ini Management is limited to notes.ini and MC variables - no other .ini files

- A few Analyze features are limited as well
Our support for Linux is generally limited, newer features will not be available. A list of major functionality that is absent:
- Eclipse Management
