The Evolveum team is proud to announce the release of midPoint version 3.0.

The version 3.0 code-named Newton is a release unlike any other in 
midPoint history. Newton release starts a new age of midPoint 
development. This release makes midPoint a feature-complete IDM system 
by adding the last missing pieces such as authorizations and delegated 
administration. But much more importantly the Newton release introduces 
new unique features.

MidPoint 3.0 has Generic Synchronization capability. It can synchronize 
not only users and accounts. It can synchronize also roles to groups, 
organization units to groups, HR organizational structure to midPoint 
organizational structure to LDAP OUs and so on. But the most interesting 
thing is that all the advanced features of identity management are still 
applicable to all object types. E.g. roles can be applied to users, 
organizational units and even to roles themselves. This ability allows 
to implement very complex scenarios with reasonably simple configuration.

MidPoint 3.0 also supports entitlements. Therefore it can manage LDAP 
groups, AD groups, resource-side roles and permissions and so on. This 
ability is native and can be applied to all resources and connectors. 
This is especially useful when combined with generic synchronizations: 
entitlements can be created and deleted automatically.

There much more new features in Newton that can possibly fit in this 
mail. For more information about Newton please see release notes at
