Where's the latest OpenDS build?

If you've been watching, you might have noticed that we didn't release a build last week. It was scheduled, and we generated the build and put it through its paces, but unfortunately a huge last-minute commit (which will help make the server easier to internationalize) caused a little more instability than we would have liked. Although most of the problems were found and fixed pretty quickly, we decided to delay the build for another week just to get in some more testing.

This week, we unfortunately encountered another round of problems in the server due to another last-minute commit (which made a change to the behavior the JVM used for contended read/write locks) just before the build was to be generated. This introduced some undesirable side effects in the replication subsystem. We think that we've got those problems worked out and have respun the build and will be kicking off the latest round of tests again. We'll hopefully have a new build available within the next couple of days.

When the build is released, I'll do a much more complete write-up on the changes that it includes, but some of the things that have been checked in since the last build include:
  • We've merged the QuickSetup install and upgrade utilities into a single tool
  • We've added support for nested static groups
  • We've added a basic attribute uniqueness plugin
  • We've added a new identity mapper that lets you use a regular expression to transform the provided identifier string.
  • We've annotated lots of our code to indicate what we intend to expose as part of our public API
  • We've added several utilities to help make it easier to use the server as an embedded application
  • We've added some basic capabilities to allow replication to automatically repair inconsistencies that may be detected
  • We've updated the replication code so that it's easier for administrators to determine if any conflicts have been detected
  • We've further compacted the way that we store information in the database so that entries are significantly smaller and faster to encode/decode
  • We've added command-line tools to help invoke import, export, backup, and restore operations through the tasks interface
  • We've added a command-line tool that can base64 encode and decode information
  • We've added a command-line tool that can generate an RC script to allow the server to automatically start at boot time on UNIX-based systems
