Hi Folks,

Fedora Directory Server 1.1.0 is now available.

See http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Release_Notes for details
about new features and new installation procedures.

What's new?
* Auto UID and GID number generation with the libdna plugin -
Distributed Numeric Assignment
* Separate packages - each main component is in its own package - uses
yum for installation
* Filesystem Hierarchy Standard file/path layout (e.g. log files are
under /var/log/dirsrv)
* Init scripts!
service dirsrv {start|stop|restart} [instance name]
service dirsrv-admin {start|stop|restart}
edit /etc/sysconfig/dirsrv or /etc/sysconfig/dirsrv-admin to set
environment
* Many of the components are now built into Fedora
* The setup command is now /usr/sbin/setup-ds-admin.pl
* startconsole is gone - use /usr/bin/fedora-idm-console instead
* Migration from version 1.0 and earlier is fully supported by the
/usr/sbin/migrate-ds-admin.pl script provided with the package
* IcedTea Java runs the console on Fedora 8 and later - proprietary Java
no longer required
Cheers
