MidPoint 4.0 was released. Code-named Gutenberg, it is twenty-eighth midPoint release. MidPoint 4.0 is a major milestone in midPoint development. Similarly to the Gutenberg’s printing system, midPoint 4.0 provides a set of elements whose, when combined together, can create revolutionary solutions. Gutenberg was a long-waited release. It took some time to finish all the changes Read more about MidPoint 4.0 “Gutenberg”[…]
MidPoint 3.4 code-named “Heisenberg” was released a few days ago. This is the sixteenth midPoint release since the project started all these long years ago. MidPoint went a very long way since then.
The Heisenberg release is the best midPoint release yet. We have finished access certification functionality, which makes midPoint the very first open source product to enter the identity governance and compliance playing field. We have also improved midPoint internals to better handle inconsistencies of resource data and we have also made many small internal improvements to increase robustness. This was one of the inspirations for the code-name. Similarly to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle midPoint accepts that there is a degree of uncertainty when it comes to processing of the identity data. It may not be practically possible to always base the decisions on authoritative data. Practical identity management system needs to accept that the identity data are always in a state of flux – and midPoint does just that. And it manages the data reliably even in situations where other systems fail miserably. […]
A significant part of open source software is developed by small independent companies. Such companies have small and highly motivated teams that are incredibly efficient. The resulting software is often much better than comparable software created by big software vendors. Especially in the Identity and Access Management (IAM) field there are open source products that Read more about Open Source Identity Ecosystem Idea[…]

MidPoint has went a long way over a last couple of years. It started as a bunch of architecture sketches and it went through many iterations over UML diagrams and prototype code in the early development stages. It survived significant changes in platform and technology and emerged out of that as a lean and lightweight Read more about Enlightenment[…]
