An important change in HCL Notes V11

Recently at a customer I had made some changes to a solution. I was running HCL Notes V11 and everything ran fine on my PC.

Soon an office complained about some code had stopped working.

I had upgraded a script library to a newer version of Apache POI for working with Excel files in some agents.
First I thought it was some compiling that hat gone wrong, but it turned out to be the script library had some files missing, soon fixed and all was well.

However what I discovered was I had been running V11 and the customer V10 and the reason for me not getting the errors was that Apache POI version 4.11 is now included in the V11 release.

As you can see here:

Which is super great !

It is because Notes attachment viewers now converts files and show them in the browsers from V11 and on, and Apache POI is used in the process.

So what I would like to know from HCL ... is this a permanent change?
Can we count on this being a part of the Notes client in the future?
