Crowd 2.0.2 Release Notes

6 October 2009

The Atlassian Crowd team is delighted to present Crowd 2.0.2. This release contains some good improvements and bug fixes.

Crowd now supports the Atlassian Plugin SDK, so plugin developers can quickly build a Crowd plugin​.

The SOAP API has two new methods that return all the attributes associated with the user or group: findPrincipalWithAttributesByName and findGroupWithAttributesByName.

This release fixes a bug that prevented Crowd from building the group memberships correctly if both LDAP caching and nested groups were enabled in a directory connector. Before this fix, Crowd would build the memberships correctly if LDAP caching was enabled without nested groups, or if nested groups were enabled without LDAP caching, or if neither were enabled. But if both were enabled at the same time, Crowd did not build memberships correctly.

We have upgraded to Apache Tomcat 6 because Tomcat 5 is out of date and has some holes in it. The Crowd distribution now ships with Apache Tomcat 6.0.20. Note that this means a change in the location of database driver JARs. With Tomcat 5, you would add your database driver JAR to your {CROWD_INSTALL}\apache-tomcat\common\lib directory. Now with Tomcat 6, you will add your database driver JAR to your {CROWD_INSTALL}\apache-tomcat\lib directory.
