The rumors of FreeIPA’s death have been greatly exaggerated

I’m not sure where this rumor came from but it keeps popping up on various message boards, mailing lists and IRC..people would ask why Red Hat stopped supporting the FreeIPA project.

But it never did. Version 2 is still under heavy development (look at the volume of patches on freeipa-devel mailing list). That said, we had expected to have released v2 sooner and probably with more features, it just became evident that in order to release the project in time, we had to make changes. Dmitri explained them all nicely in his post on freeipa-users

To make it short, FreeIPA rocks on šŸ™‚ Hang on on #freeipa at, join our mailing lists to watch the progress we make and provide feedback.

(Full disclosure: I am a Red Hat employee working on IPA full time)
