    Hi Ludo. The roadmap only mentions OpenDS 2.2 (and 2.0). How does 2.1 relate to 2.2? Dates? Are the new features in the control panel intended for 2.1 or 2.2?
    Thanks, – eduard/o

    OpenDS uses a versioning scheme where even minor version numbers are stable release and odd minor version numbers are development builds.
    So we’re done with 2.0. The promoted builds are now numbered 2.1.0-buildxxx until we create a branch, produce one or two 2.2.0 Release Candidates and the final stable release in October.
    The sustained versions, if any, of the OpenDS 2.0 server will be versioned 2.0.1, 2.0…
    As a result, the roadmap only shows 1.0, 2.0, 2.2, (a 2.4 pretty soon) and 3.0.

    Hello Ludo,
    since you know a lot about LDAP, I just wanted to ask you which PHP implementation for LDAP whould you recommand. A lot of them can authenticate against LDAP, but I haven’t found one that can create new LDAP records.
