Lotus Notes 7.x and 8.x Mac OS X Compatibility Notes from Release Notes of Various Lotus Notes Versions
https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/lotus/documentation/releasenotes/



Lotus Notes 9.0.1Mac OS X 10.6 and higher (until 10.10) Bitness: 32-bit
Mac OS X 10.11 with new Notes 9.0.1 64-bit client.

Notes:
- Notes is fastest in 10.8.x, rather than in 10.9, 10.10, or 10.11.
Put off your OSX upgrade as long as you can. We have long spinning ball issues in Adobe products, Avid, and others after 10.8.x.
- For OS X 10.10, you must use the "IBM 9.0.1 Slipstream with 9.0.1 Fix Pack 2" installation unless Notes 9.0.1 FP2 or higher is already installed from before the upgrade from OS X 10.9 to 10.10.
- For OS X 10.11, you must use the 64-bit Mac client. (It's basically a pre-9.0.2 release from looking at the code inside.)
- For OS X 10.10 and 10.11, you will also need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime from Apple. (DL1572).
