The FreeIPA team is proud to announce version 2.1.90 beta 1. This will 
eventually become FreeIPA v2.2.0.

It can be downloaded from http://www.freeipa.org/Downloads or from our 
development repo (http://freeipa.org/downloads/freeipa-devel.repo). 
Fedora 16 and 17 builds are available.

Builds for Fedora 15 are no longer being provided. Packages that FreeIPA 
requires are not available in Fedora 15.

== Highlights in 2.1.90 beta 1 ==

  * Forms-based login. If Kerberos negotiate authentication fails you 
have the option of logging in using a form using username and password. 
Or you can go directly to /ipa/ui/login.html if you do not have/cannot 
get a Kerberos ticket. This is the preferred alternative login mechanism 
over enabling KrbMethodK5Passwd.
  * Logout from the UI
  * Support for SSH known-hosts with sssd 1.8.0. This will create a 
known-hosts file dynamically based on information stored in IPA.
  * DNS forwarders now configurable via IPA
  * Configurable by DNS zone: query policy, transfer policy, forward 
policy and forward and reverse synchronization.
  * More consistent hostname validation
  * Recommendation that the compat plugin be disabled during migration 
(unnecessary overhead)
  * On new installations the default users group, ipausers, is now non-POSIX

== Upgrading ==

We tested upgrades from 2.1.4 successfully but this is beta code. We do 
not recommend upgrading a production server.

Installing updated rpms is all that is required to upgrade from 2.1.4.

It is unlikely that downgrading to a previous release once 2.1.90 is 
installed will work.

Upgrading directly from the alpha may work but is untested.

== Feedback ==

mailing list: http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-devel
