[389-announce] Announcing 389 Directory Server 1.2.7 Alpha 3 for testing

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


The 389 team is pleased to announce the availability for testing of 
Alpha 3 of version 1.2.7.  This release contains some new features as 
well as many bug fixes.  On those platforms which have OpenLDAP built 
with Mozilla NSS crypto support (Fedora 14 and later), the packages are 
built with OpenLDAP instead of the Mozilla LDAP C SDK.

WARNING: If you are upgrading from a previous 1.2.6 release candidate, 
you will need to run fixfiles to fix some SELinux AVCs, or directory 
server will not start. See bug 

To fix, run this:
  fixfiles -R 389-ds-base restore

If you are upgrading from 1.2.5 or earlier, or a stable 1.2.6,	 there is 
no problem.

WARNING: If you are upgrading from a 1.2.6 alpha or release candidate, 
you will need to manually fix your entryrdn index files. See 
for more information.  If you are upgrading from 1.2.5 or earlier, or a 
1.2.6 stable release, there is no problem.

The new packages and versions are:
* 389-ds-base 1.2.7.a3
* 389-admin 1.1.12.a2
* 389-adminutil 1.1.13
* 389-dsgw 1.1.6
* perl-Mozilla-LDAP 1.5.3 (Fedora 14 and later)

***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
requires that packages go into Testing until verified and 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
