Two releases have been announced.

  • The Enterprise version will follow soon.  It shows federation with any SAML identity provider, additional client scenarios, rich management and monitoring tools.  Look for this announcement and more details in the following weeks.

Ryan Dunn will blog about how the architecture was put together and what challenges are solved.
