from 1.5.5 to 2.0: I simply didn't understand what changes were to see. So I will head for
2.0, I expected that answer ;-)

No. I'm sad to say that but M7 still have a huge bug that we are 
tracking. Not that you'll won't get a working server, but in some cases 
where concurrent writes and searches are done, you are very likely to 
get some failures during the searches. More than that, the database can 
get corrupted.

We exactly know what is going wrong here, and we already have a fix, but 
this is in a branch, and we are currenly merging this branch into trunk, 
which is all but easy.

M8 will solve this issue, and we expect to get it released ASAP. In the 
mean time, you can use the directory/apacheds/branches/apacheds-txns 
branch whch solve the issue.

You can still work on the trunk, until M8 get released.

Just keep tuned, we are doing our best to get back to some solid and 
reliable server soon.
