Looks like some people may be overjoyed...

New in this release
• Bluetooth® radio connection functionality that enables a BlackBerry device that is running version 4.1 or later of the BlackBerry Device Software to communicate with BlackBerry Desktop Software that is running on a computer with Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2 or later over a Bluetooth wireless radio connection. See knowledge base article KB-04132 at http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...nodeId=1067250 for a complete list of Bluetooth transceivers that are supported in Windows XP Service Pack 2.

• PIM (Personal information management) and email redirection support for IBM® Lotus Notes ® version 7.0 and IBM Lotus® Domino® version 7.0. PIM synchronization support requires an additional component download that is available in knowledge base article KB-04400 at http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...nodeId=1082449 .

• In the Desktop Manager’s Intellisync™ section, users can click the Reset Configuration button to reset their PIM settings to the default.

• Added IBM Lotus Notes native encryption support for receiving and viewing encrypted messages. To use Lotus Notes native encryption, the BlackBerry device must be running BlackBerry Device Software version 4.1 or later with BlackBerry Enterprise Server™ for Lotus Domino version 4.1 or later. The desktop computer must be running Lotus Notes version 7.0 or later with an account on IBM Lotus Domino version 7.0 or later.

• The Application Loader remote function has been enhanced to allow system administrators to run basic device provisioning with little or no user interaction.

• Added data migration wizard that imports PIM data from a Palm®/Treo™ device or a Windows Mobile™-based device to a BlackBerry device. Contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos can be imported. Note that the BlackBerry Desktop Software must be running on a computer with Windows 2000 or later. For this release, the import functionality is available in the English Desktop Software install only.

The import wizard will support the following:
Windows Mobile-based devices running Microsoft Pocket PC 2003 SE, Microsoft Pocket PC 2003, Microsoft Pocket PC 2002, Microsoft Pocket PC 2000, Microsoft SmartPhone 2003 SE, Microsoft SmartPhone 2003, or Microsoft SmartPhone 2002 Palm Powered™-based devices that are used with Palm Desktop 4.0.1, Palm Desktop 4.1, Palm Desktop 4.1.2, Palm Desktop 4.1.4, or Palm Desktop 6.0.1.

See knowledge base article KB-04346 for information on the data mapping that is performed by the data migration wizard:

Fixed issues
This section lists fixed issues for BlackBerry Desktop Software in version 4.1.

SDR 56205
Previously, When a Windows IT policy longer than 1024 bytes was applied to the desktop software, the desktop software crashed when the handheld was cradled.
SDR 56298
Previously, the Standard Modem device, which is required for the IP modem feature, was not installed with version 4.0.1 of the desktop software.

Known issues
This section lists known issues for BlackBerry Desktop Software version 4.1.

SDR 26614
If you upgrade the desktop manager from version 3.6.0 to version 4.0.1, handheld applications that you map to IBM Lotus Organizer® 6.0 are mapped to IBM Lotus Notes 5.0/6.0.
Impact: Handheld applications are mapped to Lotus Notes 5.0/6.0 instead of Lotus Organizer 6.0.
Workaround: Upgrade to a more recent version of the desktop software before upgrading to 4.0.1. This issue will not occur if you upgrade the desktop software from version 3.6.1, 3.6.2, 3.6.3, or 4.0 to 4.0.1.

SDR 42224
If you create a simple or a recurring task with a reminder on your handheld, and you attempt to synchronize the handheld with IBM Lotus Notes version 6.0 or later, the reminder does not synchronize properly.
Impact: Reminders with an interval of less than a day appear blank in Lotus Notes.
Workaround: Correct the task reminders in Notes manually.

SDR 49839
When upgrading to version 4.0.1 of the desktop software from an earlier version of the desktop software, the Intellisync MemoPad translator settings for Lotus Notes version 5.0, 6.0 and 6.5 are not preserved.
Impact: The translator password field is blank and the Database Name path is set back to Journal.nsf. MemoPad for Lotus Notes cannot be synched until these settings are restored.
Workaround: Re-enter MemoPad translation settings manually after upgrade.

SDR 50099
In some cases, desktop software install files might fail to register.
Impact: Installation will not succeed until dependent files are downloaded.
Workaround: See knowledge base article KB-03928 in the Public Technical Knowledge Center at http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...&nodeId=832175 for more details.

SDR 51953
When upgrading from version 4.0 of the desktop software to version 4.1 of the desktop software, the RIM Virtual Serial COM port is removed. Note that this issue does not occur when upgrading from version 4.0.1 to 4.1.
Impact: The IP modem will not function without a RIM Virtual Serial COM port.
Workaround: After installing version 4.0.1, re-run the install and choose the Repair option to re-enable the COM port. See knowledge base article KB-04119 in the Public Technical Knowledge Center at http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...&nodeId=973905 for more details.

SDR 57362
In rare circumstances, the driver file (mdmgen.inf) required for the successful installation of the Standard Modem device will not be present in your installation of Windows.
Impact: The IP modem will not function without the Standard Modem device.
Workaround: See knowledge base article KB-03981 in the Public Technical Knowledge Center at http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...&nodeId=831845 for more details.

SDR 58906
Attempting to Import more than 200 contacts using Netscape® as the translator for Address Book in Intellisync causes an error.
Impact: Fewer than 200 Netscape contacts can be imported at one time.
Workaround: None

SDR 61567
SDR 62267

Occasionally, if the Bluetooth radio connection from the BlackBerry device to the desktop software is lost, it is not possible to restore the connection. The menu bar of the Desktop Manager shows 'Disconnected'.
Impact: Bluetooth radio communication between the device and the desktop software is stopped.
Workarounds:
Three possible remedies have been identified for this issue:
a) In the BlackBerry device options, click the trackwheel. Click Disable Bluetooth. Click the trackwheel. Click Enable Bluetooth.
b) In the BlackBerry Device Manager, de-select the Enable Bluetooth Support checkbox, then select it again.
c) Close and re-open the Desktop Manager.

SDR 62886
If more than one user profile exists in your Palm Desktop, the Intellisync Palm/Treo data migration wizard will import data from the current profile only, regardless of the profile you select in the data migration wizard.
Impact: Data from the wrong Palm Desktop profile might be imported.
Workaround: Verify that the current Palm Desktop profile is the target for import before running the data migration wizard.

SDR 63835
If the desktop software is installed in a different language than the computer’s operating system, some characters will not appear correctly when viewed in the desktop software during synchronization.
Impact: Characters may appear corrupt.
Workaround: None. This is a display issue only. Characters will appear normally on the device and in the PIM organizer.

I downloaded and installed. I was looking for the Lotus Notes 7.0 support so downloaded the lnoptions.dll so that now "looks" promising. I tried the Bluetooth connectivity but my 7100T is only at 4.0.2.49 so looks like I'll be waiting for updated device software...

Oh no, I lost the ability to sync my address book via the cable. Since our BES is 3.6 I can't sync it wirelessly so I guess I'll have to go back???

I'm guessing they expect you to do it wirelessly but that is not an option for me with BES 3.6. Where there were a lot of options in those menues there are not just a couple. Netscape is one of them?????

Good lord, can you not read? Go back and look at the release notes that I posted above.

Soapm, I don't think they'd remove your ability to wired synchronize the address book. You sure that you are not on BES 4.0 at work?
