The 389 Project team is pleased to announce the release of 
389-ds-base-  No new features were added after alpha 8, 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

This link shows all of the issues fixed in the 1.2.10 branch - 

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,
attempting to perform an internal operation will cause a deadlock. See
