Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Last night, Genii Software released CoexLinks 3.0, the next major version of our highly regarded coexistence and migration software. As part of the new release, there are now three components to the CoexLinks product, all bundled together and sharing the same license and the same cost. 

CoexLinks: The core extension manager product that runs on an IBM Lotus Domino server. CoexLinks recognizes doclinks created either by users in IBM Lotus Notes or by applications running in either IBM Lotus Notes or IBM Lotus Domino. Doclinks can be converted to Notes URL hotspots, Web HTTP hotspots or NDL attachments. Selective conversion can be done for links from specific databases to allow gradual migration of some Notes applications to a web-based interface. In external email systems, hotspot links will act as Notes doclinks whether by triggering the Notes URL or launching the NDL attachment.

CoexLinks Clipper: A windows menu add-in that allows a user to copy a doclink, view link or db link onto the Windows clipboard in a format which will paste a matching link into an Outlook email or other products such as word processors that accept HTML pasting. This allows a use who has migrated to Outlook for email to continue to share Notes doclinks with other users in Notes, Outlook. As this utility evolves, it will also allow pasting of NDL attachments when CoexLinks is configured to use NDL attachments, and pasting of various links into Gmail, which does not accept the same clipboard formats.

CoexLinks Fidelity: A separate extension manager product which renders Notes rich text messages into high quality MIME so that tables, links, fonts, margins and such appear in the destination email the way they did in Lotus Notes. Also enhances rendering of message in iNotes. Going forward, this rendering will be tuned further to meet the needs of different email systems, but from its launch, this is compatible with all current versions of MS Outlook and Google Mail/Gmail. The CoexLinks Fidelity component will be available in approximately one week.

CoexLinks continues to enhance the coexistence and migration experience for those choosing to move from IBM Lotus Notes/Domino email to alternate email systems.
