OpenLDAP

The OpenLDAP Project is a collaborative effort to provide a robust, commercial-grade, fully featured, open source LDAP software suite. The project is managed by a worldwide community of volunteers that use the Internet to communicate, plan, and develop OpenLDAP Software and its related documentation. OpenLDAP Software provides a complete LDAP implementation including server, clients, C SDK, and associated tools.

  •  04 Mar 2013 23:43

Release Notes: Multiple minor fixes; stability and performance enhancements for back-mdb. Note that back-mdb's DB format has been updated in this release; a simple upgrade must be performed if using back-mdb from previous releases.

  •  05 Aug 2012 01:04

Release Notes: This release fixes multiple bugs in MozillaNSS support, fixes replication memory leaks, and adds additional SHA2 password hash support.

  •  01 Mar 2012 06:30

Release Notes: Some regressions were fixed and the documentation was cleaned up.

  •  19 Dec 2011 22:06

Release Notes: Many bugfixes, plus the introduction of a new (currently experimental) memory-mapped database and backend. The new back-mdb uses one fourth as much RAM as the BDB-based backends, while performing searches twice as fast, and read performance scales perfectly linearly across multiple CPUs.

  •  24 Dec 2009 01:04

Release Notes: This release fixes a TLS regression in slapd in 2.4.20. It also fixes some minor configuration issues in syncrepl and other minor bugs.

Please check your facts; there have been several releases of OpenLDAP since then. There was one last week. The Freshmeat entry is simply out of date.

If it affects you and not lots of other people, maybe it isn't broken.

But there is, start here - www.openldap.org/faq/d...

At least 9 out of 10 OpenLDAP related questions I see are answered right there on the website.

No release since June 2005? 86,000 hits on google for 'openldap corruption' and many people don't seem to be able to find answers? I'm reminded of Apache FOP which went for over two years with not even a bug fix release. it doesn't matter how few bugs there are - if it affects you, you'd like to report it and get it fixed. Otherwise, you have to use something else.

And if so many people have problems with the standard deployment (BerkleyDB back end) why is there no BerkleyDB FAQ/known issues?

I disagree aswell. What are you basing that on?

If you're actually a competent enough programmer to be rendering judgements about good software design, why don't you contribute patches to the project? That *is* how open source improves, after all.
