[389-announce] Announcing 389 Directory Server 1.2.6 Alpha 2

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The 389 team is pleased to announce the availability of Alpha 2 of 
version 1.2.6.  This release contains some major new features - Subtree 
Rename, SELinux policy, Matching Rules - as well as many bug fixes.

NOTE: Packages for Enterprise Linux are available from EPEL. We will no
longer have a separate yum repo for these packages.

***We need your help!  Please help us test this software.***  It is an 
Alpha release, so it may have a few glitches, but it has been tested for
regressions and for new feature bugs.  The Fedora system
strongly encourages packages to be in Testing until verified and pushed
to Stable.  If we don't get any feedback while the packages are in
Testing, the packages will remain in limbo, or get pushed to Stable.

The more testing we get, the faster we can release these packages to 
Stable.  See the Release Notes for information about how to provide 
testing feedback (or just send an email to 

The packages that need testing are:
* 389-ds-base-1.2.6.a2 - 389-ds-base and 389-ds-base-selinux
* 389-admin-1.1.11.a2 - 389-admin and 389-admin-selinux
* 389-adminutil-1.1.10 - 389-adminutil
* 389-ds-1.2.0 - 389-ds
