So we’re approaching the first major release of my identity management project. It’s taken a while to get us close to the release, mostly through no fault of our own. Given it’s taken us so long, unsurprisingly the ground has moved underneath us.
There’s a new release of Sun Identity Manager just out, version 8.1. This close to a go-live I wouldn’t normally contemplate upgrading, but it seems to have a good set of features worth investigating – not least better SiteMinder integration and open source identity connectors.
A nice touch, whilst terribly dull, is a blog that features updates/changes to the documentation, so you can get notified via RSS of significant updates. Their competitors could learn a lot from this sort of open way of working.
