Important note for Language Pack users
If you currently use or need a non-English version of Domino, do not install the current maintenance release until the corresponding language packs are also available. When you upgrade a Domino server that has language parts installed, the upgrade process replaces all Domino language parts with the corresponding English version. Language packs are typically available 30 to 60 days after the English version.
