Posted on: 01/08/2008 07:57 PM

Fedora Directory Server 1.1.0 is now available

See http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Release_Notes for details about new features and new installation procedures.

What's new?
* Auto UID and GID number generation with the libdna plugin - Distributed Numeric Assignment
* Separate packages - each main component is in its own package - uses yum for installation
* Filesystem Hierarchy Standard file/path layout (e.g. log files are under /var/log/dirsrv)
* Init scripts!
service dirsrv {start|stop|restart} [instance name]
service dirsrv-admin {start|stop|restart}
edit /etc/sysconfig/dirsrv or /etc/sysconfig/dirsrv-admin to set
* Many of the components are now built into Fedora
* The setup command is now /usr/sbin/setup-ds-admin.pl
* startconsole is gone - use /usr/bin/fedora-idm-console instead
* Migration from version 1.0 and earlier is fully supported by the /usr/sbin/migrate-ds-admin.pl script provided with the package
* IcedTea Java runs the console on Fedora 8 and later - proprietary Java no longer required

Known Issues
* Binary packages are provided only for Fedora 6, 7, 8 and 9 - The
Fedora 6 packages should run on EL5.1 (not 5.0)
* Version 1.1 does not include the phonebook, gateway, or org chart web apps - those will be provided in a following release
* Migration to Fedora 8 and later, and upgrading an existing Fedora DS on Fedora 8, requires LDIF files - binary database migration and upgrade from an earlier release to Fedora 8 or later does not work.
