30.7.99 ldapconf 0.10 released
  • This is a major feature release
  • It is the first preview of all the work done with ldapconf in july.
  • All parts are not quite ready for usage, but some of the new features may be tested partly.
  • One feature which SHOULD work, is the possibility to save extra info for unix users in a LDAP directory
  • Other new features are:
  • - Support for multiple directory forms which may be designed from scratch
  • - Support for saving of multiple "bind" profiles, to ease the use of different bindings for different apps.
  • - Support for importing an Netscape addressbook and publish it.
  • - Support for almost 100% GUI based openldap configuration.
  • - Lots of more help in the manual.
  • Still, this is a preview, and things are not too easy to setup yet.
  • There are also lots of bad coding, small bugs, security issues, and missing instructions.
  • So it should not be used in production yet.
  • But it should be safe to try it out on a non production server.
  • Hopefully you should be able to get some of the stuff working, and if not useful, it is at least interesting to see the possibilites.
  • The major purpose of this release is to bug out the most important problems, smooth the installation and setup stuff, and evalute what should be priority and what should not.
  • For a start you should read the new manual, which is now also published here, and try to get the userinfo or the addressbook import to work.
  • I have tried to write some step-by-step guides on how to enable some of the features, but please mail me or ask on the mailinglist if something is unclear (I know lots of stuff are, but need your help to detect it :-)
30.7.99 New WWW design
  • I'm currently testing out a new html design concept on the ldapconf pages (unreleated to ldapconf).
  • It is using stylesheets to provide more "style" to CSS enabled browsers.
  • The idea is to use CSS to make the same pages work for all.
  • Therefor this pages is supposed to be easily readable in lynx and older browsers.
  • If you have problems reading this pages, please send me a comment.
