Novell TID 10066623
With the introduction of eDirectory 8.6, all eDirectory components have newer marketing and build version formats. These formats are meant to eliminate any confusion for future releases. The goal of this TID is to provide information on this new versioning standard and why it has changed. The following table is meant to help keep track of which versions are included with each eDirectory product or patch.
Includes versions for DS.NLM, DSREPAIR.NLM, NLDAP.NLM, DSLOADER.NLM
Note the latest eDirectory 8.8 version:
eDirectory 8.8 DS.NLM 20112.92
