OpenDJ 2.6.0 is shipped!

The much anticipated OpenDJ 2.6.0 is finally released on the 4th of July 2013. I think the team purposely choose this date for shipping. :)

There is a whole bunch of new features and bug fixes with this release. Take a look at the long release notes if you can.

Of the many new features, the followings are my favorites:

  • OpenDJ now provides native RESTful access over HTTP to directory data
  • OpenDJ now lets you delegate authentication to another LDAP directory service, such as Active Directory. The feature is called pass through authentication (PTA)
  • OpenDJ now lets you filter access and audit logs to focus on messages that interest you
  • The OpenDJ dictionary password validator can now check whether a password value contains dictionary words as substrings
  • OpenDJ now uses Berkeley JE 5, which brings many performance improvements
  • OpenDJ now lets you execute control-panel as any user, not only the user who installed OpenDJ

There are really many new features in this release. Bug fixes as well. 

I do not think the other company can catch up with the same old code base, given the pace ForgeRock is going. :)

Well done, guys in ForgeRock!
