Leopard is roaring under my hands…

I’ve received Leopard yesterday, and after a careful backup, I’ve upgraded my MacBook Pro.

The install was straightforward and went very smoothly. I inserted the DVD, restarted the Mac, followed the few instructions, restart and done.

Overall I’m quite pleased with the new OS. The machine appears to be faster, especially Mail and Safari. I’ve already adopted and customized Spaces. I haven’t found the time to try Time Machine yet, nor ZFS. Hopefully I will find some time in the near future to play with these, but truly the laptop is a working tool more than a gaming device 🙂

There are also a few things that are annoying me. The first one is that Leopard changed by background image. This seems like a minor thing and I can certainly restore the previous picture, but I don’t understand why it had to be changed.

The second one is Java. I had Java 6 developer preview installed. After the upgrade, Java was no longer working. I could not even use the Java Preference panel to restore the default value. I had to hack the JavaVM.framework/Versions directory to get rid of the 6 version and now Java is working again. Still I would expect from a new and modern OS such as MacOS X 10.5 to have Java 6 available by default.

Was it worth the money ? Sure. And I’m going upgrade my home machines later this week…

OpenDS 1.0.0-build006 is now available.

We have just uploaded OpenDS 1.0.0-build006, built from revision 3294 of our source tree, to our weekly builds folder. The direct link to download the core server is https://opends.dev.java.net/files/documents/4926/71845/OpenDS-1.0.0-build006.zip. The direct link to download the DSML gateway is https://opends.dev.java.net/files/documents/4926/71848/OpenDS-1.0.0-build006-DSML.war

We have also updated the archive that may be used to install OpenDS via Java Web Start. You may launch that using the URL http://builds.opends.org/install/QuickSetup.jnlp, or visit https://www.opends.org/wiki/page/OverviewOfTheQuickSetupTool for more information.

NOTE: — Even though it is displayed as an option in the QuickSetup installer, we do not support upgrading from previous OpenDS builds to the 1.0.0-build006 release. There are some changes in this release that are not backward compatible with the configuration used by previous releases, and these changes may cause upgrade to fail.

Detailed information about this build is available at http://builds.opends.org/weekly-builds/1.0.0-build006/.

The biggest change in this build is a renaming of properties and their associated configuration attributes. The documentation wiki has been updated to reflect the changes.

We recognize that we’ve been having a little hiccup with regular builds. We’re expecting to come back to more regular builds now.

Sun Java System Directory Server 6.0 and LDAP Naming Services…

Fig1As Terry pointed out, there is a new article on BigAdmin on installing DS 6.x as an LDAP Naming Service. This goes a little bit over the basic simple developer settings as the article describes how to secure the whole system and even provide high availability with multi-master replication.

Jonathan Schwartz on OpenDS

This morning, Jonathan Schwartz, Sun’s CEO, was on stage for the general session at the Sun CEC 2007.

He was explaining the adoption of Open Source Software, showing places in the world where OpenSolaris was downloaded from. He then showed the same map for Glassfish and then moved to growing communities, taking as example OpenDS.
