Subject Re: Getting OpenBlueDragon and Tomcat to traverse directories
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 18:10:43 GMT
An updated installer can be found on the official OpenBD Installer 
download site:

http://openbd.viviotech.net/

In the "installer" directory.

All future releases will be located there or directly from the 
http://www.openbluedragon.org/ web site.

A Windows Installer (which also will use Tomcat) is on it's way. Right 
now these installers have just been tested on CentOS 4 and 5, both 
32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Please submit bug reports to me or the openbd mailing list.

Thanks!

Warm regards,
