  • Revision 3492 (Issue #2614) -- Allow the ldif-directory property of an LDIF connection handler to be a relative path.
  • Revision 3493 -- Add nodetach to get server output when using the run-server and nb-debug-server targets. Enable debugging in the nb-debug-server target. Add a new nb-profile-server target for one click server profiling from NetBeans.
  • Revision 3499 (Issue #2565) -- Fix a Java Exception that occurred during replication conflict resolution.
  • Revision 3504 (Issue #2630) -- Fix a problem in in which the dsreplication pre-external-initialization command did not work correctly with a binary copy.

  • Revision 3511 (Issue #2319) -- Protect access to the dc=replicationChanges suffix by default, using a global ACI that denies all operations for all users other than the Directory Manager.
  • Revision 3513 (Issues #2007 and #2049) -- Provide a generic mechanism for using multiple caches and fix an issue in which dsconfig was unable to configure the entry cache.
  • Revision 3519 (Issue #2615) -- Fix a deadlock in the change log trimming that caused a subsequent deadlock of the replication server.

  • Revision 3528 (Issue #2633) -- Fix an issue in which new updates were not replicated when initializing a topology with dsreplication initialize-all, unless the server on which the data was originally imported was restarted.
  • Revision 3529 (Issue #2658) -- Fix a problem causing unexpected behavior when monitoring the entry cache.
  • Revision 3532 (Issue #2587) -- Fix an issue in which dsreplication enable failed to initialize the schema of a secondary server if the user schema contained a new object class dependent on a new attribute type.
  • Revision 3536 (Issue #2661) -- Make the classes in org.opends.messages public so that they can be referenced from other public APIs.
  • Revision 3538 (Issue #2086) -- Make FIFO the default entry cache instead of Soft Reference.

  • Revision 3557 (Issue #2648) -- Ensure that the dsconfig and dsreplication commands support IPv6 addresses.
  • Revision 3559 (Issue #2742) -- Add the objectClass attribute to the Root DSE operational attributes global ACI.

  • Revision 3577 -- Fix a bug which prevented the Java WebStart installer from setting the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
  • Revision 3582 (Issue #1862) -- Provide a verbose option with the setup command. By default, the graphical setup and the command-line setup run in non-verbose mode.
  • Revision 3585 (Issue #2446) -- (Partial fix). Add support to the administration framework for specifying one or more "default" managed objects which should be created automatically when a parent managed object is created. This is the first step in creating default indexes automatically when a new backend is created.
  • Revision 3586 (Issue #2446) -- Define default indexes that should be created when a new Local DB Backend is created. The default indexes are aci (presence), objectClass (equality), and entryUUID (equality).
