The 389 Project team is pleased to announce the release of 
389-ds-base-1.2.10.rc1.  No new features were added between alpha 8 and 
rc1, just many bug fixes.  There are also 389-adminutil, 389-admin, and 
389-dsgw packages in Testing.

NEW: EL6 support

Beginning with RHEL 6.2, the 389-ds-base package is included in the base 
OS.  Therefore, the 389-ds-base package can no longer be provided via 
EPEL, due to RHEL/EPEL packaging restrictions.

However, the 389 Project will still make the full 389-ds-base package 
available via http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/rmeggins/389-ds-base. 
  See http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Download for more information.

NEW: Issue Tracking System

We have moved our ticket tracking system from the Red Hat Bugzilla 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=389 to our Fedora 
Hosted Trac https://fedorahosted.org/389. All of the old 389 bugs have 
been copied to Trac. All new bugs, feature requests, and tasks should be 
entered in Trac

NEW: Plugin Authors

WARNING: Plugins should be made transaction aware so that they can be 
called from within a backend pre/post transaction plugin. Otherwise,
