Subject [ApacheDS] 1.0.1 release announcement
Date Mon, 26 Feb 2007 17:24:10 GMT
Hi all,

Just wanted to run this release announcement by everyone before posting it
to the announce mailing list.

-----

The Apache Directory team is pleased to announce the release of ApacheDS
1.0.1, a pure-Java LDAP server and more. Our primary vision is to build an
enterprise directory server platform and its components where other Internet
services snap in to store their data within the directory so they may be
managed using LDAP. Those services include LDAP itself, DNS, DHCP, Change
Password and Kerberos.

ApacheDS 1.0.1 fixes several bugs found in the initial 1.0 release of Apache
DS back in Oct. 2006.  The change log follows below:
