Updated OpenDS Roadmap - And Russian Dolls for the Geek
By pelegri on Feb 21, 2008
Ludo just posted an OpenDS Roadmap to the USERS alias. The latest OpenDS 1.0 builds (b12, b11, etc) are looking very good, so the plan is for a Milestone 1 within the next few days, a M2 in a month, and an official 1.0 release in May 2008 - which, by a coincidence, is also when J1 2008 happens :-)
Check out the road map and provide feedback on all aspects, including critical issues in b12 and the initial cut at the OpenDS 2.0 features.
I have not posted on OpenDS in a bit so here are some highlights I've noticed:
• Continued progress on documentation:
Summary of 2007 Activity.
• Helping contributions: Wiki page on How to Build and Run OpenDS within NetBeans (also see Mark and Ludo commentary).
• A lot of work on performance - for example, see this note on Search Performance.
• And, for extra points, OpenDS and VirtualBox: OpenDS on OpenSolaris on VirtualBox on MacOS X 10.5.2 on MacBook Pro.
Virtualization - Russian Dolls for geeks :-)
