IBM Notes / Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 Released ! ... but with some problems

I have been tracking the release status of Domino 9.0.1 FP10 and it was stucked at Stage 2: Code Freeze and thus I am thinking it might take some time to be released.

All of a sudden at 1 Feb 2018, it was released to public and it was still showing Stage 2. After a day, it finally jumped to Stage 5: Web Posting

There are tons of new features and bug fixes as mentioned in the release note. I noted there are some changes in this final release note compared to the preliminary release note. It seems the JVM in this feature pack is the newer Java 1.8 SR5 FP6 instead of what was mentioned earlier (SR4 FP10).

Hold on ! Before you rush to download and install it to all your servers. As reported by Daniel, there are some reported problems in this newly released feature pack.

IBM is aware of the following issues and fixes for several issues are in progress, with delivery of a fix, FP10 IF1, being planned for the week of February 5.

Issues being worked include the following:

SMTP Mails with Umlauts are broken after installing FP10, being tracked under SPR #JBAMAVKUPX
FP10 version incorrect in NSF API NSFDbGetMajMinVersion, being tracked under SPR #KBRNAVLMA3

If you use embedded Sametime and haven't already, please review the information in Sametime Embedded returns error after install of Notes 9.0.1 FP10 on top of Notes 9.0.1 FP9 + Sametime 9.0.x

There might be more issues not known yet, I would recommend NOT TO upgrade to FP10 on any of your production servers for now.
