We are continuing on enhancing the OpenDS service. If you're curious to see what we've got so far, then download a daily built version or check out the source and build it yourself.

Daily Build Versions

A new pre-built version is made available every day. Daily build versions are ready to run, but have undergone basic automatic testing.

Promoted Build Versions

We have periodic milestone builds that are more thoroughly tested. Get the latest promoted build here.

Build It Yourself

Don't want to wait for the next promoted build? You can always get the latest and greatest code by checking it out and building it for yourself.

Our source code is managed in a Subversion repository. If you're already familiar with Subversion, then you can find the information you need to check out the code here.

If you're not as familiar with Subversion, or if you want more detailed instructions, then the OpenDS Source Guide may be more helpful. Also, see the Subversion Tips and Tricks document for information on more advanced Subversion use.

Run It

Quick-start instructions for running the server are available here. You can also find more detailed instruction in the OpenDS Installation Guide.

The installation guide describes how to change a few settings, but for a more complete reference, see the OpenDS Configuration Reference (latest version).
