OpenDS 1.3.0-Build004 is now available
By Ludo on Apr 09, 2009
We have just uploaded OpenDS 1.3.0-build004, built from revision 5184 of our source tree, to our promoted builds folder.
Note that this is a jump from OpenDS 1.3.0-build002 to OpenDS 1.3.0-build004. OpenDS 1.3.0-build003 was done with specific compilation to enable the MySQL Cluster NDB Backend, but not promoted with the regular builds.
The direct link to download the core server is: http://www.opends.org/promoted-builds/1.3.0-build004/OpenDS-1.3.0-build004.zip
The direct link to download the DSML gateway is: http://www.opends.org/promoted-builds/1.3.0-build004/OpenDS-1.3.0-build004-DSML.war
We have also updated the archive that may be used to install OpenDS via Java Web Start. You may launch that using the URL http://www.opends.org/promoted-builds/1.3.0-build004/install/QuickSetup.jnlp, or visit https://www.opends.org/wiki/page/OverviewOfTheQuickSetupTool for more information.
Upgrade from 1.0 or 1.2 is still broken, but upgrade from 1.3.0-build002 should work. However, a Flag Day was raised with revision 5134 which requires a rebuild of all indexes, or even better export the database to LDIF and re-import it.
Compared to 1.2.0, OpenDS 1.3.0-build004 contains the following new features and major improvements :
- Assured Replication that provides stronger consistency and availability for replicated data
- Supports Recurring Tasks allowing an administrator to schedule repeated tasks such as backups
- Improves defaults settings and ergonomics for some server properties
- Now builds VLV indexes during Import
- A new internal ASN.1 encoding / decoding library that delivers better and more stable performances
- Improves the Control Panel in various area
- Now works well / better with IBM JVM
- Full compliance with RFC 4518. Now DirectoryString matching fully supports UTF-8 characters
- Supports languages specific matching rules for DirectoryStrings, for comparing and ordering, as well as support for indexing according to those rules
- Provides better monitoring information for Replication
- Full support for negotiating encryption through SASL and stacking encryption channels with TLS
- Many performance improvements in the Core server and in Replication
