New releases of OpenAM and OpenDJ !

It’s the happy hour, with a double release day at ForgeRock.

OpenAM 9.5.2 has just been released, along with the J2EE Agents 3.0.3 and are now available for downloads from ForgeRock. You can find the release details in the Release Notes.

OpenDJ 2.4.1 has also been released today. The patch release can be found on the Downloads page in various forms: Java WebStart Installer, Zip package or SVR4 package. The Release Notes have been posted on the Documentation wiki.

Happy birthday IzPack

IzPack, the open source, Java based, cross-platform packager installer project is celebrating its 10th birthday with 2 releases and an impressive list of companies using the technology.

In OpenDJ, we have our own Java based (Java WebStart based) installer, but if I had to redo it, I would definitely pick IzPack to build it, for its easiness, cross-platform support and great look and feel.

Long live to IzPack !

Quality Matters

As we’re working towards releasing a micro-release of OpenDJ 2.4, fixing a few issues that have been raised by our customers and adopters, we’ve made another important move towards increasing the quality of ForgeRock products :

Gary Williams has started at ForgeRock today, growing the forces at the ForgeRock Grenoble Engineering Center, and will lead our quality assurance engineering efforts. Gary comes from Sun (Oracle) where he was Principal Quality Assurance Engineer, driving the testing efforts for OpenDS and previously for Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition. He brings almost 20 years of experience in QA and testing software applications and servers.

Welcome to ForgeRock, Gary !
