There's been lot's of hard work gone into 2.4.17 and I say it every time, but this is the best
release so far!
A huge thanks to the following significant contributors to this release:
Howard Chu (Symas Corp)
Hallvard Furuseth (University of Oslo)
Quanah Gibson-Mount (Yahoo! Inc)
Ralf Haferkamp (SUSE Linux)
Gavin Henry (Suretec Systems)
Pierangelo Masarati (Sys-Net)
Rein Tollevik (Basefarm AS)
It's been 3 months almost to the day since 2.4.16 so you'll see lot's of fixes and a new tool. It always amazes me that there are still bugs even though OpenLDAP is so stable, widely deployed and so fast! Well, software will always have bugs
The nice new tool is Slapschema
: "Slapschema is used to check schema compliance of the contents of a slapd(8) database." See man slapschema (8)
For complete fixes etc. see the OpenLDAP CHANGES
Oh, and where are all my new
docs? We've been so busy with existing and new clients
that things have slipped, sorry. Lots of work with our partners Symas
too and we're also prepping a new VoIP platform for Suretec Telecom
(which OpenLDAP plays a big part!
More later and upgrade, upgrade, upgrade!!
