Overview#EDirectory 188.8.131.52 (20805.07) is the 4th Patch for EDirectory 8.8 SP8 Patch 4 or 20805.07 EDirectory 184.108.40.206 (20707.00) to EDirectory 220.127.116.11 (20801.46) and EDirectory 18.104.22.168 (20805.07).
GUID Search Crash Bug 846920#When we tried to go from EDirectory 22.214.171.124 (20707.00) to EDirectory 126.96.36.199 (20805.07) we had issues with Bug 846920 that caused the ndsd crash but because this is eDirectory base code (v20801.46) and not SP1 (v20802.09). Since we wrongly assumed that as it was fixed in 8.8 SP7 Patch 5, we wrongly assumed it should also be fixed in 8.8 SP8.
DirXML Engine JVM Changes#EDirectory 188.8.131.52 (20805.07) upgrades the DirXML Engine JVM from 1.6 to 1.7. As the DirXML Engine JVM is the same as the EDirectory JVM, we had issues with the Drivers and DirXML Remote Loader.
The documenation for DirXML 184.108.40.206 implies that the DirXML Engine JVM is upgraded to 1.7, when you look at the documentation for DirXML 220.127.116.11, it was an optional upgrade. We do not know when or if there was ever a forced update to DirXML Engine JVM to 1.7 for DirXML, but EDirectory 18.104.22.168 (20805.07) is a forced upgrade.
