GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT RELEASE
There are two distribution formats:
- tar.gz bundle which can be unpacked and this way installed in a single directory,
- rpm which can be installed system-wide in the Linux standard locations.
The rpm is build and tested on Centos 6, noarch. It should work flawlessly also on SL6 and recent Fedora distributions. We may build packages for other distributions in future, however the tar.gz format should be fully portable. Java 8 JRE is the primary installation prerequisite. For more detailed installation information please check the Unity manual.
1.2.X RELEASE SERIES
The release 1.2.0 features a great amount of bugfixes and couple of new features. The most important changes:
- MySQL support is fixed.
- The login sessions support is complete (the previous versions had this pretty limited). This allowed for introducing a couple of new features and will allow for more in future. In particular:
- Targeted transient and persistent identity types are available and can be used with SAML endpoints.
- A new concept of authentication realm allows for configuring login settings of several endpoints once, at the same time enabling cross-endpoint single sign on and logout.
- Login sessions are shared between redundant instances of Unity
- It is possible to turn on a ‘remember me’ authentication feature.
- An interface to edit message templates was added. Message templates are now typed and can be used only where they match.
- Translation profiles can be edited with a new GUI of the Admin UI. It is much easier than the JSON file editing.
- A new identity type was added to cover an opaque identifier, typically imported from external IdP.
