I’m happy to announce that a new revision of OpenDJ, the open source LDAP directory server in Java has just been released. OpenDJ 2.5.0-Xpress1 is a new stable release of the main development branch of the OpenDJ project.
OpenDJ 2.5.0-Xpress1 brings you the latest features such as:
- Capability to delegate authentication to Microsoft Active Directory (pass-through authentication)
- Improved enforcement of referential integrity for groups, whereby OpenDJ can now ensure both that members’ entries exist when they are added to groups, and also that members are removed from groups when their entries are deleted
- Access log filtering, with additional output configuration to combine request and response messages, log control OIDs, and specify timestamp formats
- Optimistic concurrency control through ETag attributes
- Synchronization of Samba and OpenDJ passwords
You can find more details about the OpenDJ 2.5.0-Xpress1 release in the OpenDJ Release Notes.
The release is built out of revision 8087 of the trunk of the code repository.
As usual, you can find every thing on the OpenDJ Downloads page:
- The Java WebStart Installer
- The Zip package (the SHA signature is here).
- The DSML gateway for those who want to provide a web service access to their LDAP directory server.
The draft documentation for OpenDJ, and more specifically the Administration Guide, has been updated on the OpenDJ project site, still on the track for an accurate, reviewed version for the final release of OpenDJ 2.5.0, due by the end of this year.
