version 1.2.4 is available for testing.  The packages are available from

are seeking feedback. There is one new package available for testing:

* 389-ds-base-1.2.4

System.  If you have a Fedora Updates account, go here:

Install Guide: http://port389.org/wiki/Install_Guide
Download: http://port389.org/wiki/Download

=== Notes ===
NOTE: If using the FC6 (EL5) packages, _you must update your yum repo
files_ - the URLs have changed.  See
http://port389.org/wiki/Download for more information.

NOTE: Fedora versions below 10 are no longer supported.  If you are
running Fedora 9 or earlier, you should upgrade.

NOTE: This release is branded as '''389'''.  All of the RPMs have been
marked as obsoleting their Fedora DS counterparts.  When upgrading via
yum, you must use yum '''upgrade''' (not update) so that the obsoletes
will be processed.

NOTE: If you are using the console, after installing the updates, you
must run '''setup-ds-admin.pl -u''' to refresh your console and admin
server configuration with the new version information.  1.2.4 fixes some
bugs related to update - it will remove old Fedora servers from the
console, and will preserve TLS/SSL configuration.  See the buglist below.

NOTE: '''389-console''' is the command to run the console.  This
replaces fedora-idm-console.

=== New features ===
* Support for Salted MD5 (SMD5) passwords - primarily for migration - do 
not use SMD5 for new passwords - use SSHA256 and higher

=== Bugs Fixed ===
This release contains a couple of bug fixes.  The complete list of bugs
fixed is found at the link below.  Note that bugs marked as MODIFIED
have been fixed but are still in testing.
* Tracking bug for 1.2.4 release - 
** [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=221905 221905] Add SMD5 
password support
** [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=529258 529258] upgrade 
should remove duplicate and obsolete schema from 99user.ldif
