IBM will officially announce “how it will move on” with IBM Notes and Domino 9.0.x in September 2016 (yes, they even mentioned the year).
Once again they stress their commitment to Notes and Domino and also announce Fix Pack 7 for 9.0.1 to be released in September as well.

Two security bulletins have been updated today, they will give you a reason more to install IF 2 for IBM Notes 9.0.1 Fixpack 5 on Windows.
Security Bulletin: Vulnerability in MD5 Signature and Hash Algorithm affects IBM Notes
Security Bulletin: libpng related security vulnerabilities identified in IBM Notes
small update: installing the IBM Notes 64-bit 9.0.1 IF1 (for Mac) caused some issues.. I was not able to launch IBM Notes anymore, installing the IF1 again would launch an error that “the fix was only for the 64bit client” and therefore would not run. I ran the install for the 9.0.1 64-bit client again which fixed the problem and now the «About IBM Notes» shows:
Release 9.0.1 (64-bit) SHF619
FP/IF nightmare all over again or only a local issue?
You’ve probably seen reports about bugs with Traveler 9.0.1 like the one from Detlev Poettgen or from Daniel Nashed. The good folks at IBM have worked on these bugs and IF1 is now available.

Thanks to Steve Pitcher for pointing it out in his Tweet
