We have also updated the archive that may be used to install OpenDS via Java Web Start. You may launch that using the URL, or visit for more information.

This build provides support for monitoring through SNMP with the following limitation: the use of SMNP on Windows is not supported due to Issue #3239 (Wrong status "Enabled" for SNMP despite opendmk-jarfile not being provided).

Detailed information about this build is available at
