JXplorer - Security Refresh

JXplorer contains a number of new security features.

  1. By default secure connections are now TLS - using older SSL protocols is still possible, but must be deliberately enabled in the config file (jxconfig.txt)
  2. We have added an 'advanced' window for the password editor, that displays more information about the password encoding, the hash value, and the salt in use.
  3. We have added SHA-256, SHA-512, SSHA-256 and SSHA-512 to the list of supported algorithms that can be generated client side in JXplorer.... read more

JXplorer 3.3 Tenth Anniversary Edition!

Hi Folks,

JXplorer version 3.3 release is now available, and the http://jxplorer.org website has been changed to direct traffic to this version.

This is, co-incidentally, the tenth anniversary of the release of JXplorer as an open source product!  With this release, supporting multiple directories and copy and paste between them, I think we are now on the same level as the commercial vendors, and in some areas (such as support for multiple languages) I think we are well ahead....

JXplorer: release candidate 2: version 3.2.1

A free java ldap client with LDIF support, security (inc SSL, SASL & GSSAPI), translated into many languages (inc. Chinese), online help, user forms and many other features. Support at: jxplorer-users@lists.sourceforge.net or: http://jxplorer.org

The main change is we finally have a new cross-platform installer! Many thanks to the folks at BitRock for their InstallBuilder license donation. We should also have finally cleared up some issues with the shell scripts.... read more

JXplorer: release candidate 1: verstion 3.2.1

A free java ldap client with LDIF support, security (inc SSL, SASL & GSSAPI), translated into many languages (inc. Chinese), online help, user forms and many other features. Support at: jxplorer-users@lists.sourceforge.net or: http://jxplorer.org

This is a minor release with some incremental improvements and minor bug fixes. At the same time we have moved to using the sourceforge subversion repository, and cleaned up the build so that a full checkout provides a buildable image. (We've also created a single 'package' that gives a complete working and buildable project image, as well as a smaller 'deploy' package that just give you the browser).

Some minor packaging wrinkles still to be sorted, but otherwise if the release candidate checks out we'll make this the 3.2.1 release.

JXplorer Version 3.2.1 Release Notes

... This is a minor release with some incremental improvements, but a lot of changes to the build and source control system.

  • Support for loading LDIF files as command line argument
  • Support for displaying raw password strings in table editor using 'mask.raw.passwords=false' in jxconfig.txt
  • Some fixes for MAC look and feel; added GTK look and feel
  • Added beginnings of Taiwanese chinese language file - only partial. Reformated chinese to be traditional chinese file.
  • Added stand alone 'smart keystore editor' as a sub-project of JXplorer (separate target in ant build, creates an executable jar file)
  • Work on ant build file; making sure that shell script permissions are maintained
  • Moved source to subversion repository, restructured to allow 'single check out, single build'; more modifications to build file.

Thanks to evereasy@gmail.com for the Taiwanese language file
Thanks to Pawel Zuzelski for the LDIF code
GTK L&F suggested by Alfonsas Stonis
Executable jar file version of smart keystore editor from Santthosh Babu Selvadurai

JXplorer v3.2 release candidate 1 is out!

JXplorer 3.2 is an incremental release with a large number of small fixes and improvements. This particular release however fixes one important issue - there was a (fortunately very rare) bug in the GUI where a series of rapid manual deletes could cause JX to delete an entire directory tree (!).

For this reason, users should either upgrade immediately, or keep the 'confirm tree operations' safety option on.... read more

JXplorer v3.1 final release and web site update

JXplorer v3.1 has been released with numerous improvements, bug fixes and stability enhancements.

The http://jxplorer.org web site has been updated to point to this new version, and people should use the 3.1 release in preference to the older 3.0 release.

There are a large number of new features and fixes, including many submitted by users, that have not been included in this release in order to keep it stable; we'll be putting out a 3.2 beta (probably at the end of April) so we can start testing these.... read more

JXplorer.org registered

JXplorer.org has been set up, and has the documentation, faqs etc. that were previously on pegacat.com/jxplorer. The site is due for a refit :-), but in the meantime is a good source for more JXplorer info.

JXplorer ldap browser - Version 3.0 Beta released

This is a preview release ahead of the expected main
release next month, to tide over the folks who have
been having trouble with open ldap's slapd schema,
and to get the general bug fixes out in the open.

It should be pretty solid; aside from DSML support
there are no other changes planned between now and
the final version (except further testing).

Precompiled packages and/or source can be downloaded from
http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/jxplorer/... read more
