Hi Ludo. The roadmap only mentions OpenDS 2.2 (and 2.0). How does 2.1 relate to 2.2? Dates? Are the new features in the control panel intended for 2.1 or 2.2?

Thanks, - eduard/o

Eduardo,

OpenDS uses a versioning scheme where even minor version numbers are stable release and odd minor version numbers are development builds.

So we're done with 2.0. The promoted builds are now numbered 2.1.0-buildxxx until we create a branch, produce one or two 2.2.0 Release Candidates and the final stable release in October.

The sustained versions, if any, of the OpenDS 2.0 server will be versioned 2.0.1, 2.0...

As a result, the roadmap only shows 1.0, 2.0, 2.2, (a 2.4 pretty soon) and 3.0.

Hello Ludo,

since you know a lot about LDAP, I just wanted to ask you which PHP implementation for LDAP whould you recommand. A lot of them can authenticate against LDAP, but I haven't found one that can create new LDAP records.

Thanks

Hi Dennis,

I'm not the biggest fan of PHP, but you can find an example for adding objects to an LDAP directory server with PHP here : http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.ldap-add.php

There is a PHP wrapper on top of OpenLDAP libraries. Details for installing and configuring are here : http://us2.php.net/manual/en/ldap.setup.php

Regards,

Ludovic.
