Update latest patches for Domino
Is it necessary to update the latest patches for Domino (like what Microsoft is having - Microsoft Critical Update that must be updated whenever there's latest critical update)? Will there be any problems if the latest patches are not downloaded?
It is always a good idea to keep your software up to date. Lotus/IBM does find flaws in Domino/Notes, and fixes those flaws with new releases of the software. My personal practice is to:
- Read the release notes for each point release and install it if it fixes some big problems.
- Every so often bring your software up to date regardless, so you don't fall too far behind.
