ApacheDS 2.0.0.AM26

The Apache Directory Project has released Apache DS 2.0.0.AM26, which is a preview of their upcoming 2.0.0 release. Although they don’t seem to have actually announced it on their mailing lists or on Twitter, the News section of their website (which doesn’t seem to support RSS or ATOM to allow subscribing for updates, nor does it provide permalinks to allow direct linking to a particular news item) indicates that it was released on Saturday, March 7. According to that post, some of the changes in this release include:

  • Added support for LDAP transactions as described in RFC 5805
  • Added support for the increment modification type as described in RFC 4525
  • Added the ability to customize the TLS cipher suites the server will use
  • Include the structuralObjectClass operational attribute in all entries
  • Include the hasSubordinates operational attribute in all entries
  • Performance improvements for add and bind operations
  • Fixed an entry cache configuration issue
  • Fixed an issue with modify DN operations that could prevent old RDN values from being removed
  • Fixed an issue in which write operations could interfere with ongoing searches
  • Fixed an issue that caused the server to use very small TCP send and receive buffers
  • Fixed an issue with the handling of hex-encoded RDN values
